    I'm not worried about it. They've been trying to kill off the B52 for decades.  The BONE....is today's work horse of our fleet of Bombers.  Long live the BONE!

    The ARM flights were flown on NASA’s SubsoniC Research Aircraft Testbed G-III aircraft, or SCRAT, at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center in California. NASA combined three technologies, including Landing Gear Noise Reduction, landing gear cavity treatments, and the Adaptive Compliant Trailing Edge flexible wing flap, to demonstrate a reduction in airframe noise in excess of 70 percent. This may reduce aircraft noise for communities that live near airports. Credits: NASA/Ken Ulbrich

    They say truth is stranger than fiction.  
    And that's certainly true when it comes to a recent flight by budget carrier Norwegian - which was forced to U-turn because of broken toilets, despite 85 of the passengers being plumbers.

    AIN Blog: FBOs Are Lifeblood of Business Aviation

    Without FBOs, airports would be just fields of runways and ramps devoid of the creature comforts and necessities that business aviation passengers and crew need to accomplish their missions. FBOs are a critically important part of the aviation landscape‚ÄĒthe welcome transition between ground and sky.
