Promoters of next year's ILA Berlin Air Show were in Wichita this week to encourage participation in the exhibition and show. Wichita is the hub of aviation and a key place to visit to promote the show, said Rudolf Dorpinghaus, senior aerospace advisor for the German Aerospace Industries Association. The Berlin Air Show, held every other year, will be June 8-13, 2010, at the Berlin-Schoenefeld Airport. Last year's show attracted 1,127 exhibitors from 37 countries and 240,000 visitors, including 120,000 trade visitors. More than 330 aircraft were on display. Part of the show will include an international suppliers forum focused on fostering business between suppliers and original equipment manufacturers from the aerospace and defense sectors, Dorpinghaus said.

CAF Loses F-82 To Air Force, But Will Pursue Appeal from AVwebFlash Current Issue
A rare F-82 Twin Mustang that has long been operated by the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) is now being dismantled in Midland, Texas, for shipping to the National Museum of the Air Force (USAFM) in Dayton, Ohio. The CAF has operated the airplane since the 1960s, but its right to do so has been in dispute since 2002, when the CAF said it was going to trade the airplane and the Air Force said it couldn't. A judge ruled in September that the Air Force owns the airplane, but CAF has been pursuing an appeal. This week, the CAF said it had offered to drop the appeal if the Air Force would allow the F-82 to remain on static display in Midland, but that proposal was rejected, leaving the CAF no choice but to hand over the airplane. "I had great hopes that this would be an amicable way to agree to disagree, yet still concede to the USAFM's policy to not fly the F-82, which has supposedly been their concern," said Stephan Brown, president and CEO of the CAF. "This decision to reject our proposal is confusing and disappointing." The response to the CAF proposal by the director of Air Force History and Museum Policies and Programs states: "After a robust and thorough discussion, the voting members of the Heritage Board unanimously decided that, based on the history of this matter and the precedential import of the judicial determination concerning the ownership of the F-82 to the National Museum of the United States Air Force and the other Armed Services, the offer of settlement could not be accepted." Brown said the CAF will now move forward with the appeal process.

A Day at an Aviation Museum - We had beautiful weather last weekend and had an opportunity to meet some new friends we had made on Twitter, so we drove down to Sacramento and spent a day looking at airplanes and further establishing the friendships. We started out with a few hours at the Aerospace Museum of Sacramento located at McClellan Airport (MCC), what used to be McClellan Air Force Base. They have a very nice museum building, clean and modern with very friendly workers and a nice store filled with aviation goodies. The entry fee for adults is $8 and there are various discounts for children and seniors (over 65)…
