ANN FAQ: How Do I Become A News Spy?

We're Everywhere... Thanks To You!

Even with the vast resources and incredibly far-reaching scope of the Aero-News Network, every now and then a story that should be reported on slips through our fingers. There's a lot of news out there, and sometimes we just don't get to all of it... so we came up with the idea of News Spies.

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (05.27.20)

"The unnecessary actions of the Russian Su-35 pilots were inconsistent with good airmanship and international flight rules, and jeopardized the safety of flight of both aircraft. While the Russian aircraft was operating in international airspace, this interaction was irresponsible. We expect them to operate within international standards set to ensure safety and to prevent incidents, including the 1972 Agreement for the Prevention of Incidents On and Over the High Seas (INCSEA). Actions? like these increase the potential for midair collisions." Source: From a US Navy document describing the third altercation with Russian Fighters that endangered US personnel, needlessly, and in violation of international law. In the latest incident, foolish and misguided Russian aviators flew in an unsafe and unprofessional manner while intercepting a U.S. Navy P-8A Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Aircraft in US Sixth Fleet, May 26, 2020.

Virgin Orbit Addresses Failure of First Launch Attempt

The Valiant Attempt To Reach Orbit Also Recognized and Lauded by SpaceX' Elon Musk

It was not the best of days for the team at Virgin Orbit, but it was an educational one. After having to scrub a launch attempt on Sunday, May 24th, due to sensor issues, the VO team, finally had the chance to launch a rocket from the belly of their 747 carrier aircraft, 'Cosmic Girl' on Memorial Day. However; while they finally had the chance to release a rocket in real life, things went bad shortly thereafter. The LauncherOne liquid-fueled two-stage rocket angled skyward about 27°, as expected, at the moment of release. After a 4-second freefall, the first stage engine, NewtonThree, was supposed to ignite and allow the vehicle to accelerate to more than 8,000 miles per hour before staging and allowing the second stage to finish the trip to orbit. It was supposed to... but like many things in rocket testing, it didn't.

The Bearhawk Model 5 has been under development for two years. Our friends at Virgin Orbit have released details about Virgin Orbit's first attempt to launch a payload into space from a cradle slung underneath a modified Boeing 747. They seem pretty excited...

Classic Aero-TV: Team Aerostars - New Extras Upgrade Team's Performance

From 2019: Yak 52s Have Been Replaced With Extra Aerobatic Airplanes For 2019

The Phillips 66 Aerostars have been performing together, side by side at around 250 mph, for more than a decade, and the story of how the team came to be is like so many other such stories ... it happened almost by accident. Team member Paul "Rocket" Hornick told that story to Aero-News at AirVenture 2019. Essentially, Harvey "Boss" Meek was looking to buy an aerobatic airplane, and answered an ad for a Pitts for sale. But through a sequence of events that you'll have to watch the video to learn, he wound up forming the Aerostars with Dave "Cupid" Monroe flying Yak-52s. The team flew as a three-ship operation until last year, when Gerry "Fossil" Molidor joined the team in the slot position.
