Beechcraft's turbine-powered trainer plane passed an impressive milestone this week with the delivery of the 1,000th T-6 Texan II, which found its home with the Colombian Air Force.

Their fleet of 5 T-6C trainers are assigned to the Air Combat Command No. 1 (CACOM-1), headquartered at Capitan Germán Olano Moreno Air Base in Palanquero, Colombia. NASA's DART program was successful, as the administration confirmed after weeks of analysis following its Double Asteroid Redirection Test. The program used the asteroid Dimorphos as a case study in the real-world efficacy of a kinetic impact on redirecting the path of a transitory celestial object, sending up the DART satellite on a collision course that saw it swing around the asteroid's larger sibling Didymos before impacting the target. Lufthansa saw a brief rash of rumors regarding the airline's approach to the Apple tracking devices known as "AirTags". The tech is a compact, lightweight, battery powered device designed to attach to personal belongings to prevent their loss or theft wherever they travel. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
