ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (11.17.19)

Aero Linx: The Southwest Navion Air Group The Southwest Navion Air Group originated in 1971 as the Southwest Navioneers.  Over time the members began referring to themselves as the Southwest Navion Air Group and thus SNAG was born.  Many years later a lot of our members were living in the Southeast region of the United States and thus the name was changed to Southern Navion Air Group to better represent our geography. In general, our goal is to get together, have fun, share information and fly with Navion owners and those who genuinely love Navions. We accomplish this goal primarily through regularly scheduled SNAG "Fly-Ins" throughout the year, and publishing a monthly SNAG Newsletter. The fly-ins routinely begin with arrival on Friday followed by a casual evening social. Saturday's (weather permitting) begin with the traditional "Dawn Patrol" of Navions and flying events such as spot landing competitions, balloon busting and flour bombing. Sometimes, there a

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (11.17.19)

"CRISM spotted carbonates here years ago, but we only recently noticed how concentrated they are right where a lakeshore would be. We're going to encounter carbonate deposits in many locations throughout the mission, but the bathtub ring will be one of the most exciting places to visit." Source: Briony Horgan of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. the lead author of a paper published in the journal Icarus that identifies distinct deposits of minerals called carbonates along the inner rim of Jezero, the site of a lake more than 3.5 billion years ago. On Earth, carbonates help form structures that are hardy enough to survive in fossil form for billions of years, including seashells, coral and some stromatolites - rocks formed on this planet by ancient microbial life along ancient shorelines, where sunlight and water were plentiful.

Airborne 11.15.19: DeLand Showcase, Another Airport Threat, Continental Air Show

Also: First Air Canada A220, Allegiant Aircraft Base, X-57 Electric Airplane, Kaman Receives Boeing Award

It never fails... have a major Fly-In and Mother Nature tends to rear her ugly head. However, in the case of the DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase, the weather turned out surprisingly warm, and despite some clouds and threats of storms, the weather was held at bay. For now. Thankfully, this year's DSAS19 event started with record advance ticket sales, sold out indoor and outdoor exhibits, and a lot of people ready to celebrate the last big Sport Aviation event of 2019. There is a lot to see here this year... 100 exhibitors... Santa Clara County may be trying to take a page from Santa Monica's book and close Reid-Hillview airport in East San Jose, but the FAA says it will vigorously oppose any closure plans -- though we’ve heard that line before... Last December, the Santa Clara County Board
