Air Show, Ely-Curtis Pusher and Spirit of Freedom Headline Festival of Flight
At the final planning meeting for the Virginia Regional Festival of Flight the Virginia Aviation Council delegates received confirmation for the largest roster of historic and special aircraft ever for this 15-year old event. Judy Sparks, Fly-in Manager announced, "Bob Coolbaugh's replica of the 1911 Ely-Curtis Pusher which he built and flew around the country for the 2011 100th anniversary of the US Navy will attend! And the Berlin Airlift Foundation's 4-engine C-54E, The Spirit of Freedom, a flying museum of the Berlin Airlift will pay a return visit."
May Face Federal Charges For Harassing An Endangered Animal
A YouTube video which has since been removed from the service reportedly showed a man flying a powered paraglider near Salt Lake City, UT, kicking at an owl in mid-air, and bragging about it. That pilot, who has not been positively identified, may face federal charges of animal harassment.
