Also: Skydive Mid-Air, Classic Aero-TV, United Airlines, Forest Service Policy v Helicopters, WestJet Pilots' Association, NASA Drops Plane, Flightnow in Court

Is it possible that the concept of a manned spyplane is still valid enough to beat out drones and the satellites for the job? The Air Force is set to retire the iconic U-2 surveillance airplane, which first flew in 1955, in 2019, but now the Popular Science website is stating that the Lockheed Martin Skunkworks is considering a follow-on aircraft to the U-2 that would be stealthier and have a longer flight time.

You won’t see us run very many for-sale stories on Airborne Unlimited, but this one caught our attention. The collection of airplanes at the Golden Wings Flying Museum in Blaine, Minnesota, is for sale. And by the collection, owner Greg Herrick means the entire collection ... as a complete package.
