Airborne 06.29.16: SWA Delays Max, McConnell OKs B29-Doc, AAL Trashes Cameras

To survive in the airline business it is sometimes necessary to be flexible and, according to a report in the Seattle Times, such is the case with Southwest Airlines. Southwest revealed to its investors that they have delayed the delivery of 67 Boeing 737 MAX airplanes, while they plan to accelerate the delivery of six 737-800s to 2017 rather than 2018.

Aero-TV: RIMOWA'S F13 Junkers - The Legend Grows New Wings

Rebuilding “The World’s First Airliner”…

The RIMOWA Luggage slogan for their line of high-end luggage products is, “The Luggage with the Grooves.” At EAA AirVenture 2015, our ANN crew met up with Stefan Bitterle, a public relations spokesman for the aviation operation within their company, to learn about their very special airplane. RIMOWA has created the first ever airworthy replica of a Junkers F13 airplane that could be called, “the airplane with the grooves.” Bitterle provides us with a detailed background of the Junkers F13 and of the re-creation of this aircraft by RIMOWA. The amazing thing about the corrugated Duralumin F13 is that it was created in the year 1919 when wood, welded steel, and fabric were the primary materials used in aircraft of that day.
