Airborne 11.11.22: An-225 Rebuild, Autonomous Black Hawk!, Spitfire!

Also: Joby eVTOL, Artemis I Delayed Again, Federal Air Marshals, Emirates Cargo Expansion

The immense An-225 could actually be more salvageable than originally imagined, according to Ukrainian state-owned Antonov.

While the majority of the airframe was ruined in the battles and resulting fires at Hostomel Airport, construction on a replacement has begun and more than 30% of the original’s parts could be salvaged for reuse. Sikorsky and DARPA have secured the attention and interest of the U.S. Army by successfully demonstrating means by which a Black Hawk helicopter can safely and reliably perform rescue operations and internal and external cargo resupply missions—autonomously. Classic model kit manufacturer Airfix has been bringing production home since changing hands a few years back, now kicking it up a notch with their 1:24 Spitfire Mk. IXc. The quintessentially British fighter cuts an impressive figure when completed, with Airfix producing a kit with plentiful, painstaking details like rivets and weld lines throughout every surface. The premium kit allows builders to create an accurately detailed rendition of all the most interesting aspects of the Spitfire’s design, from its 20mm Hispano cannons in the wings to its handsome Merlin engine. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
