Airborne 12.06.23: Vans Chap 11, Collings Grounded, YouTube Lunatic To Jail

Also: NJSAP v Buffet, WAI 2024, NAHF 2024, Alaska-Hawaiian

Van’s aircraft has filed for reorganization under the chapter 11 bankruptcy code. Van’s Founder Dick VanGrunsven said  "I realize that the word "bankruptcy" here is shocking, however the key word here is "reorganization", which implies continued operation and improvement.

Our doors will remain open and we will continue to work hard to serve our customers." The Collings Foundation have announced an end to their flying WWII aircraft wing, deciding to ground all aircraft and intern them on display at the American Heritage Museum. The turning point appears to be the October 2020 crash of "Nine-O-Nine", a B-17 that saw the deaths of 7 in the process. In the years since, a worsening economy and the continual passage of government-trained WWII mechanics have been taking their toll, making it harder to find qualified personnel to both maintain and fly the vintage aircraft. The YouTuber who deliberately crashed an airplane for the purpose of increasing his online viewership, and plead guilty to a felony charge of obstructing a federal investigation is getting six months in jail. And deserves it. Trevor Jacob, 29, who willfully destroyed the wreckage of the crashed aircraft to escape prosecution—plead guilty to one count of destruction and concealment with the intent to obstruct a federal investigation, which could have carried a statutory maximum sentence of twenty-years in federal prison. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
