MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE, Idaho -- Capt. Christopher Stricklin ejects from the USAF Thunderbirds number six aircraft less than a second before it impacted the ground at an air show at Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho, Sept. 14. Stricklin, who was not injured, ejected after both guiding the jet away from the crowd of more than 60,000 people and ensuring he couldn't save the aircraft. This was only the second crash since the Air Force began using F-16 Falcons for its demonstration team in 1982. The ACES II ejection seat performed flawlessly. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.

Stearman Fly-In Under Way

Airplanes were built to soar, not collect dust in a hangar. That’s what makes the six-day-long National Stearman Fly-In, which started here in Galesburg, Ill., on Labor Day, different from many other warbird reunions. Most of the Stearmans brought to Galesburg are flown every day. They’re definitely not “hangar queens” or museum pieces. The Stearmans […]
