Muroya down on power, bringing in speed mods for Windsor -
SALZBURG, Austria – He's been flying a notoriously fast Edge 540 since making his debut in the Red Bull Air Race World Championship in 2009, but Japan's Yoshi Muroya is starting to see this potential advantage slip from his grasp as the other teams ramp up horsepower around him.

WWII airman finally laid to rest - Air Force Times
David Champion knew he couldn't miss Mike Elliott's funeral.
Like Elliott, who was born Edwin C., Champion also flew in a B-25 bomber more than 60 years ago in World War II. Champion returned home to Coles County after the war with plenty of memories from the wild blue yonder, but it took 66 years for Elliott's bittersweet return from Europe this week.
At age 24, Elliott died with four others when a B-25 crashed on a mountain on Corsica during a non-combat mission. He and others killed in the May 10, 1944, crash have been identified through DNA testing through the efforts of the Missing In Action Accounting Command, which conducts retrieval of military remains across the globe each year. ...

Nate Carriker: Friday's Fabulous Flyer! from Flight To Success
... December 14, 1994 Nate tells me he made the mistake of his life, which should have ended his life. He was flying at a low altitude through the Martinez Canyon, 20 miles southeast of Palm Springs in his father's American AA1 Yankee. He was unable to climb out of the canyons floor, and in the ensuing crash sustained spinal fracture and cord injury that instantly paralyzed him.
His survival and ability to fly again are nothing short of a miracle, and Nate is filled with gratitude.
"Thanks to my then-roommates Jim Bixby and Peter Barbin, also SkyWest pilots, I was rescued the next morning, and thanks to dozens of incredibly caring people at SkyWest, Desert Hospital, and Loma Linda University Medical Center, I recovered almost completely, and returned to the line a year later, to the day."    ...

I'm Ready for my Close-up Mr. De Mille from AirSpace
In view of Dom Pisano's blog on the IMAX films, I thought I might offer some comment on what it is like to see yourself five stories tall on the BIG screen.  I have appeared in two IMAX films. The first, On the Wing (1986) was directed by Bayley Silleck and Francis Thompson. Rick Young, an old friend, built and flew the 1902 Wright glider featured in that film. Another friend, Ken Kellett built and flew the replica 1903 Wright Flyer that flies (almost) in the film. In the scenes with the 1902 glider, I am dressed as a member of the US Lifesaving Service, one of the fellows who assisted the Wright brothers. In the scenes with the 1903 powered airplane, I am one of the Lifesavers on either wingtip during take-off. My son Nathan, then thirteen, was released from school so that ...
