Non-Deployed Naval Aviation Units Hold Safety Stand Down After Accidents

An F/A-18E Super Hornet Crash And A T-6B Texan II Crash Are The Basis For This Decision

It's been a tough week for Naval aviation... Vice Adm. Kenneth Whitesell, Commander, Naval Air Forces, directed all non-deployed U.S. Navy aviation units to conduct a safety stand down Oct. 26. This stand down provides an opportunity for aviation commands to focus on how to further improve operational risk management and risk mitigation across the Naval Aviation enterprise. This safety stand down follows an F/A-18E Super Hornet crash near Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake on Oct. 20, in which the pilot ejected safely, and a T-6B Texan II crash in Foley, Alabama, on Oct. 23, in which the two-person aircrew did not survive.

CAF A-26 Invader Ready To Return To Flight Next Month

Aircraft Has Been Under Restoration For About 21 Years

The CAF’s A-26 Invader, which has gone by many names, most recently Lil Twister, is set to return to the skies on November 1. This aircraft has been in restoration for about 21 years. Volunteers are very excited to finally see the warbird in the air but will err on the side of caution and safety to ensure the airplane, the flight crew, and the weather are all ready to go before take-off. A-26 Invaders didn’t enter use until later in World War II but have the unique prestige of serving in three combat wars, as they saw action in World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. The aircraft is also well known for its speed and use in night missions. The CAF has three A-26s in the fleet.

No Monsters Known To Be Involved... or Even Seen (So Far) 

'Rescue Miss Pick Up from Loch Ness!' is the rallying cry for a project on GoFundme that is trying to keep one of the few remaining PBY Catalinas flying... even after an incident in which the bird had to make an emergency landing in, of all places, Loch Ness. Miss Pick Up is the name of one of the world's only airworthy Catalina flying boats and is currently operated by Plane Sailing based in Duxford, Cambridge. They call themselves, "...a small team of dedicated volunteers who do it for the love of preserving this wonderful WWII flying boat."
