ANN FAQ: How Do I Become A News Spy?

We're Everywhere... Thanks To You!

Even with the vast resources and incredibly far-reaching scope of the Aero-News Network, every now and then a story that should be reported on slips through our fingers. There's a lot of news out there, and sometimes we just don't get to all of it. Fortunately for us, we realized early on we couldn't be everywhere at once -- curse the laws of physics! -- so we came up with the idea of News-Spies. Just as the title suggests, a News-Spy is a reader who notices a news item -- be it in the newspaper, on television, or something they came across at their own airport, town hall, at the office water cooler or just by walking down the street -- basically, any item a reader may think is newsworthy, that pertains to the world of aviation.

Captain Kirk May Soon Be Space Bound

Won't Be Quite As Easy As 'Beaming Up...'

A number of media outlets are reporting vague details about the possibility that Star Trek actor, William Shatner, (aka Captain James T Kirk) may be one of the next space tourist/passengers about an upcoming flight of a Blue Origin New Shepherd sub-orbital launch vehicle. Reportedly set for a mid-October launch, Shatner's flight is allegedly the subject of a documentary that is still being shopped around to various outlets. The first manned flight of a New Shepherd was supposedly upstaged by the flawed launch of Virgin Galactic's Unity 22 flight last July, that subsequently caused the FAA to ground VG and their vehicles until further notice.
