Airborne 03.08.24: Vega Restoration, Alaska-Boeing Suit, AvFuel Bureaucracy

Also: Hartzell Rebrands POWERUP, JetBlue Contract, AAL Shops Airbus, USAF Warrant Officers

KE Works of Mount Dora, Florida is hard at work bringing a 1929 Lockheed Vega 5C back to life. 
The rebuilder, JKE Works, has completed its fair share of restorations in its time, with the company recently handed down to its 2nd and 3rd generation owners. Jim Kimball started things off, restoring some mundane GA Aircraft and good old classics like the Stearman, Travelair, and Beech Staggerwing. Three of the passengers aboard Alaska Airlines Flight 1282 have filed suit against the carrier and Boeing, citing the usual host of psychological issues seen or imagined in such cases. This trio would carry a hefty price tag in punitive damages for the defendants, $1 billion in all. The Biden administration was set to unveil new modeling to gauge the effect of sustainable aviation fuels on the climate, citing disagreements among developers. The revised model is supposed to help gauge whether corn-based ethanol derivatives will be able to qualify for credits when used in SAF development. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
