Airborne 01.25.23: Blades Team To Quit, $outhwest Bucks, SAFE/Hoover Foundation

Also: Illinois Ultralight Symposium, CAU/MyGoFlight, APFAS To Picket, AirVenture Performers

Founded as a subsidiary of 2Excel Aviation, the Blades Aerobatic Team, for 17-years, was the only full-time civilian aerobatic team in the UK. The Blades team comprised eight pilots, including five full-time display performers, all of whom formerly served in the British Royal Air Force as members of the storied Red Arrows Aerobatic Team -- but they are shutting it all down. Southwest Airlines continues to live down the consequences of operational shortfalls that egregiously and irreparably disrupted the holiday travel plans of thousands of its passengers. The airline—amidst the fallout of more than 16,000 flights canceled or delayed between 21 December and 31 December 2022—has agreed to provide pilots and other employees additional compensation for the concerted efforts they put forth during the year-end mayhem. he Society of Aviation and Fligh

Alaskan NG Wing Receives Refreshed F-16s

354th Fighter Wing Replaces 40-Year Old Aircraft with Updated 35-Year Old Aircraft

The 354th Fighter Wing accepted delivery of its first pair of F-16 Fighting Falcons from the Alabama Air National Guard. A trickle of the aircraft will make their way up to Alaska's Eielson AFB throughout the year, replacing fighters assigned to the 18th Aggressor Squadron. While the jets are 'new' to the unit up north, they're still fairly aged when stacked against the roster of 5th generation aircraft they face down as aggressors. Each year, Red Flag and Northern Edge frequently pit the F-16s against F-22s and F-35s, nemeses the older block Falcons can struggle to compete against without sufficient modernization.
