Dan Mullin had a curt answer when somebody at New Jersey’s Naval Air Station Wildwood questioned the effectiveness of the tail guns on the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress bomber. “We won the war,” said Mullin, 94, of Ocean City.

Gustave Whitehead – new development from John Brown

Budd, Have you heard?… A few hours ago, the Connecticut Senate passed a bill explicitly withdrawing recognition for history’s first powered flight from the Wright brothers and assigning it to an earlier 1901 flight by Gustave Whitehead.

Helicopters Critical Part of New Mexico Wildfire Fight

Helicopters Critical Part of New Mexico Wildfire Fight

Apart from the billowing clouds of smoke that loom on the horizon and the smell of campfires, the clearest evidence that fire season has arrived is the sudden increase in air-traffic over Santa Fe, N.M.
