Airborne 06.29.16: SWA Delays Max, McConnell OKs B29-Doc, AAL Trashes Cameras

Also: Flytenow V Supreme Ct, Electric eSpyder, F-35 Adir, IL AirShow, NJ AvTax, FAI Young Artist, Unregistered Airplane

To survive in the airline business it is sometimes necessary to be flexible and, according to a report in the Seattle Times, such is the case with Southwest Airlines. Southwest revealed to its investors that they have delayed the delivery of 67 Boeing 737 MAX airplanes, while they plan to accelerate the delivery of six 737-800s to 2017 rather than 2018. Delivery of the 737 MAX airplanes may be delayed by as long as six years, according to the report. That would push about $1.9 billion of Boeing's bottom line into the 2020s. It won’t be long before the World War Two Boeing B-29 named, ‘Doc,’ will join the CAF B-29, ‘FIFI,’ to become the second Stratofortress still flying.

Airborne 06.28.16: Snowbirds At OSH16!, Tamarack EASA Cert, Final T-6B

Also: Red Arrows Cut, Aero-Calendar, FAA v Amazon, Miracle Flights, Accident Investigation, Giant Planets, Real Estate Drones

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds put on one heck of a show, and to do this at EAA AirVenture 2016 they need a good chunk of airspace. The Snowbirds will perform on the last three days of EAA AirVenture, and on those days, the flightline airshow viewing area will be modified to allow the increased separation from activities on the ground. During the performance, AirVenture attendees will be restricted from accessing certain areas of parked aircraft. These areas must also be free of items such as chairs, blankets, coolers, and other loose items. EASA has granted Supplemental Type Certificate approval to Tamarack Aerospace for its Atlas Active Winglets on the Cessna Citation M2 light jet. This brings the total number of Cessna models approved for Tamarack’s winglets up to four. The company says that by using Atlas the wing span of the M2 has been incr
