Loss, Gain in the Family

Loss, Gain in the Family

This little tale doesn’t involve the loss of a family member, at least not a member with flesh and blood. If you’re the kind of person who counts sheet metal and oil count in that definition, then, well, OK, my good friend and fellow aviation blogger Dan Linn did lose someone this summer: his beautiful […]
Series Focuses on High-Flying Repos

Series Focuses on High-Flying Repos

It isn’t often I get too excited about TV shows. As I’ve grown older, my ability to suspend belief is weakening, which makes watching most of the small screen’s drivel extremely difficult. That includes series in the so-called reality genre as many of them are actually scripted to some degree or another. Regardless, I’m gonna […]

FedEx and Those 727s

FedEx and Those 727s

By now, everyone who follows the commercial aviation industry in the U.S. (or reads FlightJournal.com on a regular basis) undoubtedly knows what FedEx has been doing with its out-of-service Boeing 727s. In case you haven’t heard, the Memphis, Tenn.-based company that revolutionized air and ground express delivery is donating the jets to aviation schools, colleges and […]
The View from Pinal

The View from Pinal

Nope, this post isn’t about those women on TV airing their talk show from some remote location in the Caribbean. It’s about brand new Boeing 747s awaiting delivery at Pinal Airpark down in the southern part of Arizona. As many airliner buffs already know, Boeing simply doesn’t have room at any of its Puget Sound […]

The 747: A Video Tour Through the Years

The 747: A Video Tour Through the Years

OK, I admit there’s a soft spot in my head for Boeing’s iconic, legendary and (your-word-of-awesomeness here) 747. While I’m not a foaming airliner fan, there are few profiles that are as cool to me as the one belonging to Boeing’s biggest four-engined jet. To put an even finer point on it, the 747SP is […]
Texas Warbird Group Takes Fundraising to Next Level

Texas Warbird Group Takes Fundraising to Next Level

In today’s stressful economy, you might wonder how the volunteer warbird restoration groups are faring as the country keeps tightening its belts. Well, most continue to live on donations of both money and time, with an odd grant here and there, just as they have been doing for decades. A Fort Worth, Texas-based foundation called Greatest […]

If You Have to Ask…

If You Have to Ask…

In the market for a warbird? Naw, I’m not talking about a T-6 Texan or a Cessna Bird Dog (though there’s nothing wrong with those); I mean something really unique. Well, your wish is my command. Click here for a most fascinating Barnstormers.com ad, then consider a call to your banker, as fighters like this […]
This One’s for the Pros

This One’s for the Pros

So here’s another gift suggestion, but it’s not for the faint of heart: unusual attitude flight training in an Aero L-39 turbojet! OK, I admit this one truly isn’t for everybody, but if you know a professional pilot who flies high-performance aircraft, you may want to suggest a call to Stallion 51 Corp. Based in […]

Speaking of Gifts…

Speaking of Gifts…

As I mentioned in my last post, the gift of flight is a great one for any young boy or girl, even the young at heart. While I agree that an airplane ride might not be feasible for everyone, there are some ground-based alternatives. One of our advertisers is Ikarus, maker of a nice line […]
Give the Gift of Flight

Give the Gift of Flight

If you still don’t know what to give that hard-to-buy-for youngster in your life, then consider this suggestion: an airplane ride. Nope, not a trip aboard a commercial airliner, as long lines, invasive security and indifferent customer service have pretty much sucked all the fun out of that experience. I’m talking about flying on an […]
