The Flying Matador Speaks About a Tough 2009 from Bleacher Report
Arguably one of the most charismatic pilots in the paddock, Alejandro (or simply Alex) Maclean is a seasoned Red Bull Air Race pilot with an experienced team. Sometimes though, just having these two cards on hand is not good enough for winning in the top-flight of aerial motorsports.
Maclean—whose name comes from his Scottish grandfather—has had a very tough 2009 starting with a sponsorship deal that didn't go through with Research In Motion and their Blackberry branch.
To add insult to injury, the Spaniard was always receiving the short end of the stick when it came ...

Russell Military Museum from Airspeed by Stephen Force (Steve Tupper)
... This spring, I got a call from listener Luke Donald from Russell, Illinois. Luke volunteers at the Russell Military Museum and thought that the museum might be a good subject for the show. I took a look at the map and realized that Cole and I would be driving right by the museum on our way to Oshkosh, so I wrote Tim back and asked whether I might be able to stop by and interview someone in person. ...

Northrop MX-775 "Boojum" from The Unwanted Blog
See, this is what happens when you don't plan ahead adequately… the source data on this most recent contest entry is currently not accessible. The last contest showed artwork of the Northrop MX-775B "Boojum," the supersonic and unbuilt stablemate of the MX-775A "Snark." Some online sources on this include THIS and THIS and THIS.

Little-known facts from AeroHub

Back in the early times of Hamilton's history, a half century ago, a far-sighted young man called Bwian Thoughntown, attempted to establish an aero-engine overhaul facility in this small rural township which was then almost totally dedicated to matters pertaining to cows.

Whilst munching happily on a nutritious bread and dripping sandwich, during his 15 minute lunch breaks, he worked away on an American Menasco engine.
His workmates considered him to be somewhat odd, and over-reaching himself, as this sophisticated piece of machinery was far superior to the British Bedford motors with which the Company's vehicles were fitted. A common expression amongst the mechanics was: ...
