Zeppelins Return to the US This Halloween, $785 Gets You On Board [Airships] from Gizmodo by Sean Fallon
We first learned about Airship Ventures plans to bring airship travel back to the US after a 70 year absence back in May when they secured 8 million in funding for the project. Now it appears that their dream of filling the skies with huge, slow balloons once more will become a reality this Halloween when they will embark on their first ever passenger flight. Details on the flight itself are scarce, but we do know that 246-foot long airship will be under the command of the world's only female Zeppelin pilot and it will take off somewhere in the Bay area. The band Abney Park will also be on board and rumor has it that might even take a few requests. Currently, there are 8 spots left on the historic flight, and tickets are selling for $785. It's a hefty sum, but remember that price pays for the whole seat—but I am sure that you will only need the edge.

"New" Wright B Flyer Unveiled from AVwebFlash Current Issue
Well, product development is important--even if the design is almost 100 years old. The Wright "B" Flyer Inc. has built a new replica of the aircraft that "really introduced the country to aviation," said Amanda Wright Lane, great-grand-niece of Wilbur and Orville and trustee of the Dayton-based nonprofit group behind the project. The "Silver Bird" was on display at the National Business Aviation Association convention in Orlando this week and its portability is one of its main features.

Site Of Fossett Wreckage Snowed In, Investigation Continues from AVwebFlash Current Issue
The site of Steve Fossett's crash, above 10,000 feet in the rugged Sierra Nevada mountains near Mammoth Lakes, Calif., was covered in about two feet of snow over the weekend, and officials said they will probably not be able to return to the site until next summer. However, the NTSB already had retrieved the wreckage and the engine of the Decathlon that Fossett was flying, and the investigation will continue. "A revised report and a determination of probable cause will be issued upon completion of the investigation," the NTSB said. Several bone fragments found at the site have been sent to a lab to see if they can be identified as a match for Fossett. One of the searchers, who has posted some photos of the recovery effort online, said he was "amazed" by how thoroughly the site had been cleaned of debris. "Only a few pieces about the size of a silver dollar or smaller" remained, he said.
