Airborne 08.29.14: Google Drone!, Cessna's 10,000th, Bearhawk LODA

Also: Big Boeing Order, Napa Tower Quaked, Landsberg Retires, Galileo Falters

Breaking News! Google has unveiled an exciting new UAV project, called Project Wing, which has been under development in Australia--reportedly a more productive environment to work because of the confusion spawned by the US FAA... The 10,000th single-engine Cessna aircraft has been delivered from Textron Aviation's Independence, Kansas facility since its first delivery in June 1996. Liberty University took delivery of this milestone aircraft, a Cessna Skyhawk, along with two other Cessna Skyhawks, adding to its growing flight training fleet.

Classic Aero-TV: 26,000 Pounds of Heli-Beast -- The Cold War Air Museum’s Mi-24

Ugly To Many, But Incredibly Beautiful To Hard-Core Helo Fans

ANN CEO and Editor-in-Chief, Jim Campbell visited the Cold War Air Museum's Mi-24 Russian helicopter at HAI a little over a year ago and just couldn’t pass it up. Jim linked up with retired Col. Pete Coz of the United States Marine Corps and asked him to explain this flying exhibit. Col. Coz said they have been working on it for about five years to get it restored to flying condition.

We do provide our membership with aviation history and memories of the important parts our own members have played in this fascinating subject.
