Stratolaunch Systems founder Paul Allen has put his mark on the fuselage of the enormous airplane being flight tested as a horizontal launch system. Allen tweeted photos this week of the Stratolauncher, being built by Scaled Composites, emblazoned with "Stratolaunch: A Paul G. Allen Company" on the left fuselage. While there had been hopes of flight testing the airplane this summer, there are still three taxi tests on the schedule, delaying the first flight of the aircraft into the fall at the earliest. The results from the 2018 edition of the Reno Air Races are in, following the completion of the Gold races.

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (09.24.18)

Aero Linx: The Globe Swift / Temco Swift Homepage The birthplace of the Swift was Ft. Worth, TX, in early 1940. The very first low wing, two-place retractable gear aircraft called "The Swift" was built as what would be called today a "homebuilt," by Mr. R.S. "Pop" Johnson of Ft. Worth. Mr. Johnson was reputed to have taken the trial delivery of a Culver Cadet, measured its vital organs and returned it to Culver, no purchase. Then he built himself an aircraft and began looking for a financier and builder. Mr. Johnson contacted Mr. John Kennedy of Ft. Worth. Mr. Kennedy was president and founder of Globe Medicine Company and Globe Aircraft Company. Known locally as a financier, entrepreneur and an all around good business man, Mr. Kennedy's Globe Aircraft Company had been a very active sub-contractor during the war years, with production of Beech AT10's under contract for Beech and the war effort. Looking for postwar business, he and Mr. Johnson made a deal: Mr. Kennedy's company, Globe Aircraft
