Canadian air traffic controllers are doing what they can to help out their U.S. counterparts on Long Island as the American controllers work without pay during the partial government shutdown.

Atlantic Canada controllers ordered up several pizzas and had them delivered to the control center on Long Island where Controllers have been working without pay since December 22 due to the partial shutdown. There are currently about 14,000 controllers in the U.S. working without pay, according to NATCA. Union representative Doug Church, the deputy director of public affairs, said the New York controllers were thrilled to get the pizza delivery. "It's just a really good shot in the arm of positive energy and positive emotion to know that, 'Hey they've got our back'," he said. It isn’t as bad as it sounds... but SpaceX is planning toshed about 10 percent of its workforce, according to an internal memo from company president Gwynne Shotwell. The company currently has about 6,000 employees. Shotwell said that the decision was a "very difficult" one to make. In a statement, SpaceX said that it needs to become "a leaner company" to succeed in developing interplanetary spacecraft and space-based global Internet services. “Either of these developments, even when attempted separately, have bankrupted other organizations. This means we must part ways with some talented and hardworking members of our team," the statement said. Fan favorite air show performers and newcomers to Oshkosh have committed to flying during the afternoon and night air show lineups at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019. And even though members of the ANN crew have been going to oshkosh for nearly five decades, the annual airshow still measures up as one of the best aspects of the “Greatest Airshow Over Earth.” The afternoon air shows are scheduled to kick off at 2:30 p.m. daily during AirVenture, while the night shows, which are getting better and better each year, will take place on Wednesday and Saturday at 8:00 p.m. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
