No matter which holiday you're celebrating these days (and believe me, we're covered back here at ANN... with a diverse variety of Christian, Jewish and Buddhists among our families, these days). The hard-working and long-suffering gnomes that publish ANN and Aero-TV will finally get to take a short holiday break this week [we gnomes thank you --ed]. ANN's normal DAILY news schedule will be presented through December 24th, and will then be on a somewhat reduced Holiday schedule, December 25th through the 2nd of January.
Keep in mind that our staff will be on duty if anything important breaks. No matter what or when, we'll STILL do our best to keep you updated on anything critical or time-sensitive, while normal DAILY news coverage will resume by Wednesday, January 2nd.
Airborne will webcast on December 28th and January 4th, since our usual 'other' day, Tuesday, falls on both holidays. Until then, please enjoy the following:
ANN will present its Annual Year-End Wrap-Up features throughout this time period. Important news items will still be presented over this period, though the main thrust of our coverage will be a look back at all we've survived in 2012, as well as a look forward at what we might have to deal with in 2013.
On behalf of the many aviation professionals that make ANN and Aero-TV the most widely read/listened to/viewed DAILY aviation news resource extant, we wish you a safe and Happy Holiday...
