As we were preparing this webcast of Airborne, ANN’s Jim Campbell got some very much unwanted news... one of the grand gentlemen of aviation, NASAO CEO and president Henry Ogrodzinski, passed away after a hard-fought battle with cancer. Is cash flow a concern at Bombardier? The company just announced that it will lay off about 1,700 workers in its aerospace division shortly after saying the entry into service of the CSeries aircraft will be delayed until sometime in 2015. Specially modified aircraft originally created for Alaskan bush-pilot necessity, turned into one of the world's most unique aviation competitions. The "Valdez STOL" (short takeoff and landing) compaction held in Alaska will now be one of the activities at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014 set for July 28 through August 3rd at the Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. All this... and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
