Airborne 06.18.18: XP-82 Twin Mustang, Tuskegee Airmen, Supersonic Reg Change

Also: Thunderbirds/Snowbirds To N TX, AK Mid-Air, Gogo AVANCE L5, Sikorsky's New Parts Supply Site

The restorers of a North American XP-82 “Twin Mustang,” one of the most unusual fighter/escort aircraft ever deployed by the U.S. military, are aiming to make EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018 its first public appearance to celebrate completion of an arduous 10-year restoration project.

The 10-year restoration project in Douglas, Georgia, began after aircraft restorer Tom Reilly discovered the complete airframe on a farm in Ohio. Reilly then scoured the earth seeking engines, propellers and a multitude of other XP-82 parts to continue the restoration. The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) Red Tail Squadron, America’s tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen, has announced that Tuskegee Airmen Col. Charles McGee and Lt. Col. George Hardy will join them as special guests at EAA AirVenture. The group’s RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit mobile movie theater will be a featured attraction at the event’s KidVenture “Future Pilot” activity program to help inspire the next generation of aerospace professionals. The FAA plans to propose an update to its rules governing supersonic flight over the U.S. in light of developments in SST technology. In a notice posted on the FAA website, the agency says the proposal would update and add to the noise certification rules in 14 CFR part 36, subparts A, D, and O to accommodate noise certification of new supersonic aircraft. Currently, 14 CFR part 36, Noise Standards: Aircraft Type and Airworthiness Certification does not apply to supersonic aircraft other than the Concorde. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
