Airborne 08.23.19: 'Starman' Intercept?, Paraglider, World Aerobatics

Also: Boeing 737 MAX Panel, FAA Warns Aboout AOA Sensors, Mission To Jupiter, Aviation Coalition

Earlier this week, we said somewhat tongue-in-cheek that Elon Musk might try to recover the Tesla Roadster that was launched aboard the first Falcon Heavy launch and put it back on the road.

And while that might not happen, it appears that Musk is at least mulling a mission to take some photos of his car in space. Musk said on Twitter Sunday that SpaceX might launch a photo mission to catch up with the roadster and take some pictures of Starman. But he did not offer any more details about how such a mission would be completed. Italian paraglider Joachim Oberhauser has won the 16th FAI World Paragliding Championship after a nail-biting two-week-long competition in Krushevo, North Macedonia, August 7-17, 2019. Oberhauser, 43, came out on top after 10 days of intense competition flying. He finished ahead of 149 other pilots from 48 different countries to win the title of FAI Paragliding World Champion and a prestigious FAI gold medal. Meryl Delferriere, 21, from France won gold in the Women’s category and is the new FAI Women’s Paragliding World Champion. A total of 21 women took part. Start your engines! The 30th edition of the thrilling FAI World Aerobatic Championships are underway following an Opening Ceremony Wednesday night in France. Held at the Châteauroux-Centre airport in central France, this year’s competition runs from August 22 to 31 and will include 18 teams from around the world. Pilots from Australia, Switzerland, Russia, and the United States will be among those battling to steal the crown from the reigning French team. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
