Aero-News: Quote of the Day (09.22.20)

"I take a great deal of pride in the amount of detail we present, and the standards we’ve applied to conducting our flight tests. That’s why these things don’t come that often, and are an incredible amount of work to produce. More important; the standards by which these programs may be conducted are changing by the day, because we now have a lot more tools at our disposal to bring the realities of flight test and evaluation to the public in a manner in which they cannot only read what’s being done, but see and hear those standards that are being applied." Source: ANN's Jim Campbell's intro to a MAJOR rant about flight test standards, the lack of them throughout the 'YouTube' universe, and the need to make sure that what the public reads and/or views is real, honest, expert, accurate info.

Aircraft Had Recently Participated In WWII Commemorations In Hawaii

We are still evaluating the information coming in on a crash in the central part of California state, near Stockton,  involving a WWII generation Mitchell Bomber that went down short of an airport and into an 'open' field, where an irrigation ditch, and other impediments apparently caused serious damage to the airframe. The aircraft involved is a 1944 B-25J (and most recently categorized as an 'N' Model after rebuild), serial number 44-28938, registered to PROAIR HOLDING COMPANY LLC, LATHAM , NY, as N7946C. The aircraft had previously been damaged in a forced landing accident near Reno, NV, in 1987. The aircraft later underwent an extensive 18000 hour restoration and flew again in September of 1995.
