Aviation Articles for July 29, 2011


Yes, some of us in the aviation world are NOT at the AirVenture show.  Here are some articles to read between your sessions watching the live camera feeds from Oshkosh.

As you can imagine, there aren’t many articles floating around this week that aren’t associated with coverage of the AirVenture experience.


Will you be flying after 65 years?
This article is from Cheshire, CT. Ev Cassagneres is an aircraft historian and aerial photographer – and he’s been flying for 65 years. Here’s a little about him and his flying experiences.

Ever heard of Ageless Aviation Dreams?
This article is from Stevens Point, WI. A local organization there is trying to repay a little bit to our veterans by giving them a chance to experience flight again.

An excellent reason to be in Dayton, OH next April
This is from the Air Force News. The Doolittle Raiders are planning their 70th reunion. It will be held at the National Museum of the Air Force in Dayton, OH from April 17th to the 20th next year (2012). The organizers are trying to get 25 B-25s to fly in and land at the Museum runway (to surpass the 17 they had in 2010). Sounds like a great reason to visit the AF Museum.

    Thanks Tr. I always enjoy reading stories about the pioneers. The WASPS are a special treat. The men (and women) who flew rather primative airplanes in mass during WW-II always get my salute. Those few who still fly have some great hangar stories. For those who no longer fly on their own, arranging a ride is a gracious gesture, as well as giving them the controls for a few minutes. Those fellows (and gals) paved the road for today’s flying. The next one or two generations (yup, including you!!) helped to develop what we enjoy today. My thanks and Salutes to all, sir. -Craig

    Thanks for stopping by. I see they’re shutting down NATCO and moving it all to ATL. Guess it was bound to happen.
