As related in an earlier investigative report, ANN has uncovered what appears to be an enormous and ongoing scam offering aerial combat "Top Gun" type flight experiences to the public for highly discounted rates in the $300 to $400 price range.
An interesting new development was the sudden appearance of a number of new, glowing reviews for the whole scheme... reviews that ANN has investigated and found to be totally bogus... You don't have to had read much about the state of air travel without having heard about the battles underway at American Airlines. A launch date has been set for the first contract re-supply of the ISS by SpaceX. NASA managers, SpaceX officials, and international partner representatives have set Sunday, October 7, as the target launch date for the first contracted cargo resupply flight to the International Space Station under NASA's Commercial Resupply Services … or C-R-S contract … the first paying flight for SpaceX to the station. All this... and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
