And You Thought YOUR Last Flight Was Long...
Remember that commercial flight you were on recently? The one
that was delayed for hours for maintenance and then had to hold for
weather? Remember sitting in the middle seat with a Sumo wrestler
on either side of you -- AND that they'd had garlic for lunch?
Perhaps you're thinking that was the longest flight ever
It wasn't. Meet Boeing's Chuck Cadena, who spoke with ANN
Wednesday as he was aboard a Boeing 777-200-LR attempting to break
the world record for the longest-ever commercial flight. Heading
east from Hong Kong, the 777 will overfly the US and end up in
London. When we last talked to Chuck, he was somewhere over the

guest, Boeing's Chuck Cadena.)
Our DAILY programs consist of (at least) three separate
products... the first is a short synopsis of the previous 24 hours
of Aero-News, in brief, spanning only a few minutes (max) and in a
size/format that will allow it to be mailed as part of a Daily
Aero-Cast subscription; a more comprehensive DAILY news product
that will cover the previous 24 hours of news in a somewhat more
detailed fashion, and a feature Aero-Cast that will center on one
of the more important subject or topics of the day in considerable
depth and detail. This is how these products break down...
- ANN's Daily 'Touch & Go' Aero-Cast: A quick look at the
most recent news of the day... short, succinct and to the point.
The usual 'Touch & Go' takes but a few minutes and is a
summary, only, of the day's events. It only takes a few minutes of
your time and will be available by subscription, shortly.
- ANN's Daily Briefing Aero-Cast: The Daily ANN Report (ANNRep
for short), is a more comprehensive look at the day's news. We'll
give you the whole buzz... the news and features that occupy the
forefront of aviation news as well as solid background on the
subjects that aviators and other aviation professionals need to
stay informed on.
- ANN's Daily 'ASR' Feature Aero-Cast: ANN will be offering a
Daily 'Aero-News Special Report.' This involves a more in-depth
view of a story or two that dominated (or will be dominating) the
day's news. Far more detailed than any single story in our standard
ANN Daily Reports, this is a solid chance to get a close look at
the stories and topics that matter. ASR features may include
exclusive interviews with Aviation's Newsmakers, ANN's Special
Investigative reports and solid analysis of the stories that will
have undeniable impact on the world of aviation and aerospace.
We're tremendously excited about this particular product in that it
truly adds nuance and background to important breaking news stories
and personalities. While our current news format allows for
extensive reporting and information dissemination, ANN's ASRs
should set the bar even higher.
ANN has become a pivotal force in the world of aviation in the six
years that have passed since we undertook the immense task of
becoming the aviation world's DAILY news and information service...
but with the all-new news services we're offering as part of our
Aero-Cast line-up, we expect to become even more indispensable to
the industry we serve.
Check them out, let us know what you think and be sure to keep
those news-tips and program suggestions coming... ANN is ALL about
what YOU want to know about in the world of aviation and
