ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (09.25.20)

Aero Linx: Antique Aeroplane Association Of Australia The Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia is widely recognised as Australia's premier organisation promoting the preservation, restoration and flying of old aeroplanes. “Old Aeroplanes” includes Antique, Classic and Contemporary aeroplanes, both Civil and Military from the 1920s through to the 1960s. The AAAA was formed in 1974 by a group of owners and enthusiasts to fill a need for an association to represent the interests of owners of old aeroplanes at a time where aircraft were being exported or forced out of the air by heavy Government charges and regulation. The most important role of the Association has been to give owners and enthusiasts a unified voice with which to speak to Government instrumentalities. We are the recognised spokespersons for Australia's restorers, maintainers, owners and operators of old aeroplanes. The AAAA is an incorporated association.  It is run by a committee of members el

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (09.25.20): Contaminated Runway

Contaminated Runway A runway is considered contaminated whenever standing water, ice, snow, slush, frost in any form, heavy rubber, or other substances are present. A runway is contaminated with respect to rubber deposits or other friction-degrading substances when the average friction value for any 500-foot segment of the runway within the ALD fails below the recommended minimum friction level and the average friction value in the adjacent 500-foot segments falls below the maintenance planning friction level.

Greg Colyer's 'Acemaker' T-33 Banged Up In Landing Accident

No Injuries, But The Bird Got A Little Bent...

Greg Colyer is known as a guy that has edxpertly brought the earliest generation of military jets to the attention and delight of airshow audiences all over the country. Flying his 'Acemaker' T-33 (T33-452) N133HH, on Tuesday, he apparently encountered some squirrelly conditions on landing and wound up with a hard landing and a collapsed Right Main Gear. The accident took place at Wyoming's Cheyenne Regional Airport (KCYS). The damage to the Canadair CT-133 Silver Star 3 has been listed as "substantial.' Greg took the unusually forthright approach to avoiding the rumor mill by explaining what happened on his Facebook page...

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.  Three people were on the aircraft. Two were transported to a local hospital, and one was able to walk away. Ampaire has flown its second technology demonstrator. The aircraft is a refined version of its Cessna 337 “Electric EEL” hybrid-electric aircraft conversion. The company refers to the new flight test aircraft as the Hawaii Bird, as it will be flown by Ampaire and Mokulele Airlines pilots on air routes in Hawaii later this year in a se
