A380 Oshkosh Visit Details from AVwebFlash Current Issue
Airbus and AirVenture officials say they've done the math and they can barely squeeze the world's largest airliner into Wittman Regional Airport for its first air show appearance in North America. The A380 will arrive in Milwaukee on July 27 for customs clearance and crew rest and take off for Oshkosh the next day for a planned arrival at 3 p.m. The aircraft will do a seven-minute flight display before setting up for landing on Runway 36. In a web conference Friday, Airbus test pilot Terry Lutz said that while the 8,000X150 runway is plenty for the A380, there's only one taxiway that will accommodate the aircraft, although, happily, it's the one that leads to Aeroshell Square ...

Weekly Update - 12July to 17July from CAF Minnesota Wing Blog by Commemorative Air Force, MN Wing
Good Morning Everyone!
This has been a very busy week, with a lot of pitfalls, teamwork and roadtrips. Our B-25 Miss Mitchell has been in the hangar with problems since last Friday. We've worked a ton of overtime, every night, to get her back in the air. We had some frustrations along the way. The nose case turned out to be damage because of a propeller problem. This problem can only be fixed by replacing a prop blade and bearing. We contacted Tri-State Aviation, they had a prop. We ran a team (Bob Wright, Dave Schouveller, Steve Wagoner) up to get it, and got it home, unfortunately there was no paperwork with it. This meant we still needed to bring it to a prop shop to get inspected ...

Wahpeton Run/Red Tail Update from CAF Minnesota Wing Blog by Commemorative Air Force, MN Wing

It seems they expect to run the aircraft within the next week!!! As per Bryan Darnell "If all goes according to plan, we'll be converting 100LL to Merlin Music very soon!" Hopefully we will be seeing the P-51 at our Open House on August 8th...

Hawaiian Air to Bring Home Original Bellanca CH-300 from Flight Image of the Day by Barbara Cockburn
While retro jets have become the latest airline fad, with Continental and Air France some of the recent additions, Hawaiian Air is going really retro.
To help celebrate the airline's 80th anniversary this November, Hawaiian Air located its first aircraft, a Bellanca CH-300 Pacemaker. Its CH-300 first flew 80 years ago and Hawaiian has been working to restore the aircraft to flyable condition. It plans to bring the aircraft home to Oahu in September.
Here are two photos, circa 1929, depicting the original aircraft.
