Flying into space is a tough business and we are sorry to say that after 18 successful flights of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, the resupply flight headed for the International Space Station on Sunday morning came apart 139 seconds after liftoff. SpaceX' Elon Musk tweeted a short comment shortly after the failure, noting, "Falcon 9 experienced a problem shortly before first stage shutdown. Will provide more info as soon as we review the data." It’s reported he stated in a follow-on tweet that there had been “an overpressure event in the upper stage liquid oxygen tank.” ANN regrets to report that airshow pilot Steve O'Berg has perished in an accident while conducting an airshow routine at the Cameron Airshow, Saturday afternoon, in Cameron, Missouri.

Aero-TV: A ‘Yuneec’ Flying Machine – New QuadCopter Designs Attract GA Interest

A Close-Up Look At A Major Player In The RC/Small UAV/Drone Industry

ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, was at Sun ‘n Fun 2015 and checked up on something new that’s called the “UAV Cage.” This is where he caught up with Greg Glover, who works in the field marketing division of Yuneec. In case you’re not familiar with Yuneec, they are an innovator in the small UAV business. You may be aware that there’s a lot of concern over the safety and legality of UAV operations as the FAA tries to develop operating rules. Yuneec appears to be aware of that and has designed a “geo-fence” feature that actually prohibits their UAV from flying above 400 feet or within 5 miles of an airport.

David Beesmer had been arrested in 2014 after capturing video of the outside of a medical building in the town of Ulster. Beesmer said he knew that the camera on the quadcopter would not be able to see into the windows of the Mid-Hudson Medical Group building, but also admits that it was a "huge error in judgement" to aim the camera at exam rooms in the building. Beesmer was charged with two counts of Attempted Unlawful Surveillance. The first trial ended in a mistrial and in the second trial the jury returned a verdict of "not guilty." Here’s another aerial legal case that also involved the leveling of criminal charges. Three BASE jumpers who leaped from the top of the One World Trade Center in September, 2013 have been acquitted of the most serious charge leveled aga
