Guatemalan Airshow Practice Session Results in Loss of Pilot and 2 Spectators

Three Dead, and Unknown Number Injured

Details are still pouring in at this late hour, but according to multiple Guatemalan press sources, a Redbull aerobatic aircraft has been involved in a fatal accident. Two Redbull performers were billed to perform at an airshow conducted by the Aeroclub of Iztapa, Escuintla. Both Kirby Chambliss and Steve Andelin were on the roster to fly at the show, but Chambliss's Facebook page reports that he was alive and well and was not the pilot involved in the accident. Several videos (see the attached screengrabs) show the aerobatic monoplane conducting some aerobatic maneuvers as one terminates too low and collides with the ground, nearly level and the aircraft ultimately winds up off site and in a nearby body of water in a highly fragmented condition.

A C-130 Hercules water tanker owned by Oregon-based Coulson Aviation has gone down in New South Wales, Australia while fighting bush fires in the region. Three American crew members were fatally injured Thursday when the plane went down in the state's Snowy Morano region. Coulson Aviation said that one of its Lockheed-manufactured tankers went down after it left Richmond in NSW loaded with fire retardant. The company offered few details about the accident other than to say it was "extensive."

The DJI Phantom line of drones, considered by some to be the industry standard, vanished from store shelves about 14 months ago. At the time, DJI cited a "parts shortage" that prevented it from manufacturing new Phantom drones. Well, the Phantom 4 Pro is back. DJI posted a statement saying that the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is again available for purchase as of January 6, 2020. A new drone from Autel Robotics was introduced at CES 2020 in Las Vegas. The 8K Autel Evo II is billed as a potential "Mavic Killer" by the company. Autel Robotics says that the Evo II will have a standard 7100mAh battery that provides up to 40 minutes of flight time in forward motion or 35 minutes in hover. The drone can be controlled at a range of up to 4.8 nautical miles, and has a dozen computer vision sensors controlled by a dual-core processor
