Aussie Matt Hall earns his Red Bull Air Race wings – PerthNow
AUSTRALIAN Matt Hall is one step away from earning a berth in the lucrative Red Bull Air Race series after a successful qualification camp in Spain.

2008 Red Bull Schedule and News - Community from FIVE EARN RED BULL WINGS - Five young pilots from around the world who successfully completed a week of rigorous training and testing at the Red Bull Air Race Qualification Camp in Spain were awarded the coveted ‘Super Licence’ this weekend, the essential document needed for entry into the race. Australia’s Matt Hall (37), Canada’s Pete McLeod (24), France’s Francois Le Vot (38), Germany’s Matthias Dolderer (38) and Japan’s Yoshihide Muroya (35) all passed the tests with flying colours and were delighted to take home with them their newly acquired ‘licence to fly’. It will be decided at a later date if any or how many rookies from the crop of pilots will get the chance to compete in the 2009 Red Bull Air Race World Championship

This Week In Military/Aviation History 29 September - 5 October from Warbirds Online by Tom Kwiatkowski Sr. - Hello Folks, I apologize for being late with this post. Geez, another month almost gone already. One good thing, we’re closer to Election Day. Well, I don’t consider that really a good thing, just that it’s closer and less campaigning to put up with. Sorry Folks, but I’m not looking forward to the next four years no matter who wins, but that’s just me. Don’t get me wrong, I love my country, but not necessarily the people who have been/will be picked to run it. Or, if you listen to the campaigning, ruin it. (Notice, there’s only one little letter difference.) We’ll see. Let’s get down to some serious history, shall we? Have an AB FAN (ABsolutely FANtastic) week, Take Care and Be Safe, Tom K.;)

Bring the Rain from THE FLYING PENGUIN by Wicked Penguin
So, I'm working a T-34 tonight with a student and instructor on board. They're on vectors towards South Whiting for the PAR approach. Just east of the final are three small restricted areas that belong to Eglin. They usually "loan" them to us, but they'll take them away when they need them for specific operations. Typically they'll have C-130 Hercules transport planes para-dropping troops for survival training or doing low altitude runs. Fairly innocuous things…
