Also: M600/SLS Unpaved Field Approval, United Calibrate Launch, Eviation $2B!, AH-1Z Viper Milestone

A deHavilland DHC-1 Chipmunk, reportedly the oldest such example of the breed, has been involved in a bizarre airshow accident in which its right wing was nearly torn from the airframe after colliding with an antenna positioned within the airshow’s active flight area.

No harm came to the pilot, but pictures suggest that the wing was severely compromised and that the pilot was lucky to recover the aircraft intact... Capt. Tim Perry, President of ALPA Canada, issued a statement, as the seven-month anniversary approaches since two Pivot Airlines pilots, along with three other employees, were detained in the Dominican Republic after discovering and then reporting contraband on their aircraft. "After nearly seven months, the flight crew remains detained and unable to leave the country..." Comes now November 2022, and Microsoft’s storied Flight Simulator program attains the distinction of being the tech-titan’s longest-running software product line—predating Windows by three-years. Most versions of Microsoft Flight Simulator include digital iterations of popular aircraft deriving of the military, commercial, business, and general aviation sectors. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
