Aero-News Staff -- And Readers -- Reflect On 2005, Look Ahead
As you may be able to
tell by looking at a calendar, turning on the evening news or
listening to VH1 (it only hurts when you actually watch the
videos... or, eep, shows) the end of 2005 is almost here... and
with it, comes the time for EVERYONE to reflect on the events of
the past year, and well as to speculate on what the new year -- by
our best estimates, that'd be 2006 -- will bring.
Alas, we're no different. As you may recall, we put the call out
around Thanksgiving for our readers to send us what they felt were
the best (and worst) things 2005 brought to the world of aviation,
as well as their best (and worst) guesses about what 2006 would
bring. And boy, did you respond!
Soon (in fact, in less than two days... wow, we're really
cutting this close) you'll be able to see what fury hath your
contributions wrought... in addition to what ANN staffers feel were
the most newsworthy items about 2005. We'll be covering the entire
spectrum -- from General Aviation, to Sport Aviation, to Aerospace
developments, to Military Aviation... yeah, you get the idea.
We'll also be looking ahead to 2006... a year is already looking
to be even more exciting (in both good, and not-so-good ways) than
2005 was. And we're still catching our breath from this year.
Stay tuned... ANN's exclusive look back on 2005, and look ahead
to 2006, is coming VERY soon!
