NTSB Concludes News-Copter Collided With Small Drone

No Evidence Of The Drone Itself... But If The Shoe Fits...

After an extensive investigation, a proper one we might add, it now appears that there has been one more documented midair between a civil manned aircraft and unmanned drone, albeit (apparently) a small hobby drone. The helicopter was operating under the provisions of 14 CFR Part 91 as an electronic news gathering flight, under visual flight rules, within Class G airspace. The pilot heard a noise which he first thought might be a bird strike, and made a precautionary landing. Post flight examination led the pilot and operator to believe they collided with a drone. A search by ground and electronic methods did not locate a drone.

ANN/Airborne Special Programming Highlights: Oshkosh 2019

We're REALLY Going To Miss Bringing You OSH2020, But Here's The Next Best Thing...

The Aero-News Network, throughout its history of nearly a half million stories and tens of thousands of multi-media productions, is particularly proud of our special event coverage and programming. But... no event stirs our souls nearly as much as Oshkosh does... an event that ANN's CEO and Editor-In-Chief has been attending for nearly half a century (yup... he's getting WAY old...). And yet... 2020 is going to be the first year without an Oshkosh in our adult memories... so what to do? Well; the best bet to is to celebrate all the goodness and excitement of past AirVentures and make serious preparation to come back in 2021, with a vengeance.
