Also: Gone West: Aleta Jackson DeLong, Barnstorming: Breakfast With A Hero, Pearl Harbor, WWII Vets, NATA at KVNY, Flightstar, UK Airport Threat

John Glenn has headed west. At 95 years of age, America’s third astronaut into space, and the first American astronaut to orbit the earth has passed away. Our sentiments, and the sentiments of everyone who remembers those dangerous and heroic first days of space travel are best represented by a tweet that was issued by NASA immediately after his death, which reads: “We are saddened by the loss of Senator John Glenn, the first American to orbit Earth. A true American hero. Godspeed, John Glenn." Walter Extra, the famous aerobatics pilot behind the Extra series of aerobatic planes, has set a Fédération Aéronautique Internationale world record in the new field of Electric-powered planes. On November 25, Extra

President-elect, Donald Trump set the world of aviation and the media slightly off center when he tweeted the following: “Boeing is building a brand-new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion. Cancel order!” Then, during an impromptu television interview following his tweet, Mr. Trump said "Well, the plane is totally out of control. It's gonna be over 4 billion dollars - and, I think it's ridiculous. I think Boeing is doing a little bit of a number. We want Boeing to make a lot of money but not that much money." Here’s a report for our aviation minded friends who are looking for an excuse to travel to a beautiful location. From September 7 through the 16th, 2017, Gruyères, Switzerland will host t

ANN FAQ: Here's How YOU Can Support The 'Let Bob Fly!' Documentary Project

Bob Has Asked ANN To Help Him Tell A Story That Could Transform The Fight For Airmen Rights... YOU Can Help!

Just a few days ago, ANN dropped the first hints (of many to come) of what has become an all-involving endeavor... to undertake an inspiring, exacting, professional, long-form documentary covering the tumultuous FAA v Bob Hoover debacle.
