Airborne 12.17.14: Evergreen Woes, Foolish Pilot Tricks, No 757 Replacement--Yet

Also: $1M Aero-Photo, Draken Gets A-4s, 'Super Dell' Acts Super Dumb, Legendary Bell 47, Osprey Hours

Airborne 12.15.14: A380 Future, More USA Today Disappointments, Jetman FORMATION

Also: Comet Water Differences, Garmin Datalink, Bogert Battery Boxes, WSI/iOs, Mistletoe Copter Fail

Some things just leave you scratching your head. Such is the case with the recognition of USA Today by the National Press Foundation for their sensationalist articles on general aviation accidents written by Thomas Frank -- and yes, we find this most disappointing. The European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft has found the water vapor from comet 67P to be significantly different from that found on Earth. The discovery fuels the debate
