Airborne 11.13.23: B29 Replica Flies!!!, Cleaveland Tool, Aerolite 120 Woes

Also: First T-38 Replacement, Aviation Discovery Fest, Spacewalkers Lose Tools, Rocket Lab

The long-awaited first flight of the Tom Hodgson B29 Replica took place last week... in style. 

A one-hour first flight featured a number of fly-bys and low passes before the builder/pilot decided that he had all the data he needed and brought it back to its home drone in Kokomo, Indiana. Hodgson reported that the aircraft was pretty much in trim and that there were no significant issues during the test flight. A heartfelt request from the family owners of Cleaveland Aircraft Tool began making the rounds this week, an unfortunate reminder of just how fragile the light aircraft industry remains. Cleaveland Aircraft Tool is a good old fashioned company providing assistance in building and repair for amateur-built, experimental, and vintage aircraft. Their bread and butter lies in the Van's catalog. Another low-blow was struck with the announcement that the German Aerolite 120 will shortly cease production. The Aerolite 120 is a slick little U/L... with Dacron sailcloth wings, a Polini pusher engine, electric starter, and electric flaps. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!

Airborne 11.13.23 is chock full of info in this Daily News Episode, Monday, November 13th, 2023... Presented by Aero-TV veteran videographer and Airborne Host Holland Lee.
