An astronaut who was part of what was then mankind's greatest adventure... the first flight to orbit the moon and return back, has died in an accident while flying a T-34. 

Bill Anders, is credited with the famous Earthrise photo of the Earth coming up over the moon (taken aboard Apollo 8), and was confirmed to be the only occupant of the aircraft. Anders was 90 years old and his loss was confirmed by his son, Greg. Piper has received Flight into Known Icing (FIKI) certification from the FAA for its M700 FURY. The FIKI system comes standard on all M700 FURY aircraft, and is an electromechanical expulsion deicing system located on the tail as well as the leading edge of the wing. The recent FAA reauthorization brings a much-needed change to a long-running problem regarding air show restrictions. The law also specifically allows for the safe operation of air show aircraft during a sporting event, so long as the aircraft do not fly over the stadium itself or adjacent parking facilities. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
