Scouring the information super airways can sometimes be a
tough, if educational, task for the Aero-News staff... but it also
allows us to check out some truly neat and exciting sites, so it's
not that bad a gig. On any given day, we may check dozens (and
often hundreds) of different sources for story ideas, and facts
confirmation. And, as is the nature of our business, much of this
is done on the Internet.
Recently, the ANN gang decided we probably shouldn't keep
some of the neat sites, info resources, and organizations we've
discovered to ourselves... so we decided to bring you Aero-Linx.
These are the sites that WE check out -- when we need added
perspective, a new spin on a day's topic... or just want to escape
into cyber-aero-space for awhile.
Look for some of our favorite sites, coming each day to ANN
via Aero-Linx. Suggestions for future Aero-Linx
segments are always welcome, as
Aero-Linx: Flying Moms
If you're a flying mom, Linda Maloney wants to hear from you.
Maloney, a formal naval aviatrix, is putting together stories of
flying moms. The coffee table style book will feature the stories
and photos of moms that fly. The book will provide a legacy and
preserve the memories that can be passed down to future
generations. Maloney also hopes the book will inspire young people
to pursue their dreams, whether they are in aviation or another
