According to the statement from the company, the Airlander experienced a heavy, nose first, landing and the front of the flight deck has sustained some damage which is currently being assessed.

Oshkosh 2016: The Highs, The Lows, The Heroes and The Bozos…

A Look Back At The Aero-Equivalent Of Burning Man, Woodstock, And An Old Fashioned Tent Revival—All Rolled Into One Week in Wisconsin

With Oshkosh all of a few weeks in the rear-view mirror, we come to a time when we TRY to evaluate what happened this year… in both positive and negative terms.  We’ve tried a few variants on this report in the past… and some of them have worked better than others, but we’re going to try to present a group of shorter segments, as we move through a few general categories (Heroes, Regrets, Coolest Players, Coolest Moments, Bozos, Planes, Gadgets, Fan Favorites, etc…) so that we can try to make a proper report of the many high and low-points of AirVenture 2016… If any of you have anything to add, please do so, we’ll be revisiting this topic via a half dozen or more categories over the next month and we’d love to have YOUR viewpoints added to the mix. But for now… Here are our selections for Oshkosh Heroes 2016...

Also: Mini-Drone, Avilution, Narita Tower, US/Mexico Av-Agreement, UK Helipads Too Small, FAA Employee Busted, Proba-3

If it was a secret, it isn’t now, as a few images of Northrop Grumman's offering to replace the Air Force’s T-38 supersonic jet trainer have appeared on the Internet as the plane conducted high-speed taxi tests last week at Mojave Airport in California. The aircraft was built by Scaled Composites under contract with Northrop Grumman. FAA records indicate it is powered by a single F404-GE-102D engine, also known as the Model 400. The High Sky Wing of the Commemorative Air Force in Midland, Texas plans to unveil a refurbished Grumman F-14A Tomcat at its CAF Airsho this weekend. The airframe is notable as being the first F-14A to shoot down another aircraft in combat. On August 19, 1981, Commander Henry Kleemann and Lieutenant David Venlet of VF-41 flew th
