Hurricane Ike devastates Lone Star Flight Museum from Flightblogger by Jon Ostrower
I got word yesterday from a good friend that the Lone Star Flight Museum in Galveston, Texas was devastated by Hurricane Ike. Any description I give will not do the reality of the damage justice.

The LSFM website says that it will be adding a special donations page to help with the rebuilding "within the next 24 hours." Once it is available, I will add the link to this page as well. ...

Restoration: The Memphis Belle from Air & Space Magazine
... During World War II, the U.S. Army Air Forces required heavy-bomber crews to complete 25 missions before they could go home. In 1943, having flown over France, Belgium, and Germany, the Memphis Belle crew became one of the first to reach that goal. After returning to the States in June 1943, the bomber and many of its crew served as the centerpiece of a 31-city War Bonds tour. Academy Award-winning director William Wyler documented the Belle's service in a 41-minute color film (viewable online at the Internet Archive). The four-engine bomber became the most famous aircraft from the air war in Europe. ...

Air Racing 101 - Air & Space Magazine
A course in handling the course at the National Championship Air Races.
When the Reno Air Races started in 1964, they were based on the premise that out in Nevada's high desert, where there was no one around to suffer collateral damage, all bets were off. If you came to race, you knew the risk and accepted the consequences. The traditional way to learn how to race was to simply strap into a race plane and go take a good look at the pylons. The bravado of self-education added to the ethos of the sport, but it took a toll on pilots and airplanes. In the first four decades Reno lost 15 pilots. After a particularly preventable fatality in 1994, racer Alan Preston went to operations director Bill Eck and revitalized a concept that had been discussed over the years. In 1998, when the Sport class debuted at the Reno Air Races, a school to learn to race airplanes debuted with it.
