  1. The 50th anniversary of the Boeing 747 will be celebrated this summer at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019 with programming taking place throughout the week. Developed by Boeing during a time when long-distance commercial air travel was becoming more popular, the 747 was designed to carry large numbers of passengers and subsequently held a passenger capacity record for 37 years after its introduction. Over the years, the 747 was also adapted into other roles, including for cargo, aerial firefighting, and presidential transport, among others. The 747 officially celebrates the 50th anniversary of its first flight this Saturday, February 9.SOURCE
  2. One of the warbird highlights at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018 was Special Kay, the only flying Douglas B-26K/A-26A Invader in the world. This twin-engine medium bomber/attack aircraft has been recently restored to its mid-’60s U.S. Air Force glory, and honors the veterans who flew the type out of bases in Thailand during the Vietnam War. When the Thai government expressed objections to basing foreign bombers on their soil, the U.S. Air Force obliged by redesignating the Invaders as attack aircraft, hence the move from B-26K to A-26A. Read more about it in the February issue of Warbirds Magazine.SOURCE

  5. When Sergei Yakovlev, son of legendary Soviet aircraft designer Alexander Sergeyevich Yakovlev, was working on the aerobatic Yak-55 back in 1980, he probably never imagined anything like this. It would have surely been inconceivable to him that, nearly 40 years later, a group of guys, in the decadent West, no less, would take two of his airplanes and stick them together. But that’s exactly what happened. In this video, air show pilot Jeff Boerboon, EAA 363600, talks about what it took to build the remarkable Yak-110, and what it was like to fly it at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018.SOURCE
