Oskosh begins next week! from DailyAviator by Dennis Collins
The little red Lancair downstairs won’t be making it to Oshkosh this year. Darn. Still working on the engine, and not getting much time to do it between other necessary things. So I’ve been negligent doing any posting about Oshkosh. ...

Sunderland International Airshow 2008 from Technorati
What - no planes? I think the same thing happened last year when we took the short trip from South Shields down the coast to the beach at Seaburn. Like last year it was once again a beautiful warm sunny day when we left the house in readiness for four hours of aerobatic displays, but a thick misty sea fret rolled in about 400 metres inland and forced the cancelation of flying for the afternoon. (See the background image) All was not lost and the 200,000 spectators still enjoyed picnics on ...

WhiteKnightTwo to be unveiled on Monday, space to seem less far away

Hold onto your dollar bills, y'all -- the WhiteKnightTwo is set to be unveiled (and swooned over) on Monday.

Richard Branson and "other dignitaries" are preparing to officially launch the ship at the Mojave Air and Space Port in California (a short drive from Zzyzx, we hear), and we're still being led to believe that test flights should begin as early as this fall. Hey, at least you know what you're doing next year if your ship comes in.
