The Adventures of Chopper Chick!: Obama's historic all-female Marine One crew from copterchick.blogspot.com
It was another first in presidential history. When President Obama left the White House on Thursday for Andrews Air Force Base, the Marine One helicopter that lifted off from the South Lawn was piloted by the first female helicopter aircraft commander in Marine One history. Maj. Jennifer Grieves of Glendale, Ariz., flew her first Marine One mission in May 2008, and had flown Obama and then-President George W. Bush.In honor of Grieves' last day in the rotation, the Marines assigned two other female officers -- Maj. Jennifer L. Marino, of Palisade, Colo., and Sgt. Rachael A. Sherman, of Traverse City, Mich. -- to complete the crew. And that all-female crew was another first. Marines say Grieves is off to Command and Staff College in Quantico, Va.

2009 Dayton Air Show - My son, Dan, invited me to attend the 2009 Dayton Air Show this past weekend, so I went and enjoyed the day. It didn’t require a lot of walking as we had purchased seating, so I sat and took several hundred photos on my digital camera. I posted about one-third of these on my Flickr page and invite you to look at them if you want. They are broken into five sets of photographs and you can watch any of the slide shows on Flickr. I will mention two of the sets of photos as my favorites.

Fokker companies reach 90th anniversary AVIATION-NEWS from http://www.aviationnews.eu/
21st July 2009 it will be exactly 90 years since aviation pioneer Anthony Fokker started the ‘Nederlandsche Vliegtuigenfabriek’ (Dutch aircraft factory) in Amsterdam, with the main aim of building and selling aircraft. At that time Fokker was one of the first to see the opportunities of commercial aviation, and the revolution that this new form of transport would bring about. Many of the legendary flights in aviation history were made with Fokker aircraft, including the 55-day flight in 1924 to the Dutch East Indies and later the flight over the North Pole.
