ANN Wishes Our Readers, Listeners And Viewers A VERY Happy Thanksgiving Holiday

Yes... We Will Be On A Holiday Schedule For The Rest Of Week

As the Aero-News staff observes the US holiday of Thanksgiving on Thursday, we wanted to let our readers know that ANN will still be on the job, reporting breaking news in the aviation and aerospace fields as it happens -- in Real Time -- just like always. Aero-News will be publishing at a slightly reduced level on November 22nd and 23rd, as our staffers spend some time with their families... some of whom may not recognize them away from their computers. Basically, we're going to treat the four-day weekend as just that: a four-day weekend, meaning you'll still be able to find several new stories each day on our website. By the way, we celebrated an amazing milestone last week... the SEVENTH anniversary of our 'AIRBORNE' programming... which has grown from once a week to bi-weekly to thrice-weekly and on to a DAILY (and then some!)... with even greater things in store for the near future -- HINT, HINT.
