Airborne 03.01.24: Burt Rutan Returns!, Reno Replacements, RIP Ingenuity

Also: Odysseus Lander Lying Prone, HAL Rebrands, Enstrom Adds AC, Hartzell Bumps Up Warranty

The (truly) legendary Burt Rutan will return to Oshkosh in 2024 with appearances and forums coinciding with the 50th anniversary of his VariEze canard aircraft design. 

EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2024 is July 22-28 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh. Rutan, an EAA Lifetime member for more than 50 years, made his first big splash at Oshkosh in 1972 with the VariViggen, which brought canard design to the homebuilt community. The Reno Air Racing Association folks have disclosed the top three locations in the running to become the future home of the National Championship Air Races (NCAR). The three finalist cities are Casper, Wyo., Pueblo, Colo. and Roswell, N.M. Ingenuity, the Mars Helicopter, flew its last earlier this year, terminating a flight with an uncommanded and premature landing with telemetry cutting off soon after. It was unknown exactly what happened to Ingenuity, or what state it was in following its last attempted flight, but a distant drive-by from its orbital companion, the Perseverance rover, provided a coda to the little helo's mission. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
