ANN FAQ: Aero-Twitters Offer Instant Alerts For Breaking News

Say Hello To Aero-Twitter!

Twitter is designed to work on a mobile phone as well as on a computer (and can be accessed via your IM clients). All Twitter messages (called "Tweets", naturally) are limited to 140 characters, so each message can be sent as a single SMS alert. Brevity is a virtue when using Twitter, since you can't say much in 140 characters (then again, the world would probably be a better place if people spent less time reading their cell-phones, anyway).

Also: Rockwell Collins, RC Antonov AN-225, Safety Culture In Alaska, Sonic 'Thump', Drone Reg. Data, Aiming For Mars, Hawaiian Pilots

The Solar Impulse-2 crew alerted ANN, early Saturday morning, that it’s next step in their trek around the world was about to depart Tulsa, Oklahoma, and head for Dayton, Ohio. They departed Tulsa at 4:22am local time and, after a successful flight, landed at Dayton International Airport 16 ½ hours later.

Bell Helicopter has announced plans to relocate several programs in order to optimize manufacturing capabilities across multiple Bell Helicopter facilities.
