SpaceX has performed a static-fire test of a new Super Heavy booster at its Boca Chica, Texas Starbase launch facility. 

While the ignition of 33 Raptor rocket engines proved a memorable spectacle; the test-firing yielded both favorable and unfavorable results. The Coast Guard employed Counter-Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) capabilities in collaboration with the FAA, Seattle PD, and Mercer Island PD to enforce FAA-issued temporary flight restrictions over Lake Washington during 2023’s Seafair Weekend Festival in support of the event’s constituent airshow. Throughout the event, the Coast Guard detected 16 UAS operators violating airspace restrictions... Airshare has signed a Letter Of Intent (LOI) to purchase Wheels Up’s aircraft management business. The deal is expected to close in 2023’s third-quarter. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
