Airborne 09.13.23: MWLSA Expo Was GREAT, Astro Record, Wheel$ Up

The ANN crew had an immensely successful trip to Mt. Vernon Illinois for the very busy 15th Annual MidWest LSA Expo. 

Not the biggest show in the world, there was still LOTS of flying, an overtly friendly atmosphere and a volunteer staff that could NOT be beat. Close to 40 vendors filled the easily accessed airport ramp, and nearly 200 demo flights were safely executed. Overall traffic was estimated to be up some 20% over previous such events. On 11 September, Frank Rubio, who’s currently serving out a year-long mission aboard the International Space Station (ISS), earned the distinction of logging the longest single spaceflight by an American, surpassing former record-holder NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hei’s mark of 355 days in space. Upon returning to Earth later this month, Rubio will have accrued 371 days in space. In an SEC filing, Wheels Up, stated: “On September 6, 2023, the Company [Wheels Up] and Delta [Air Lines] entered into the Third Amendment to Secured Promissory Note to increase the aggregate principal amount of the Note by up to an additional $15-million, of which the additional $15-million was received by the Company on September 6, 2023.” All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
