Also: B-29 Doc Flight Experience, Triple Tree Cancels, Challenger 350, RAVN May Yet Live On

A late night notice was posted with the bad news, Friday evening... The IAC Board of Directors met by teleconference on Friday, 10 July 2020, to discuss the 2020 U.S. National Aerobatic Championships scheduled to be held in Salina, Kansas, 20-24 September 2020.

Russian Cargo Ship Leaves, Crew Tests Dragon’s Comfort Factors

Four Out Of The Five Expedition 63 Crew Members Assessed Comfort Factors

Russia’s Progress 74 (74P) cargo craft departed the International Space Station this week leaving four spaceships from the US, Russia and Japan parked at the orbital lab. It will be replaced in two weeks when the Progress 76 arrives to replenish the crew. The 74P undocked Wednesday at 2:23 p.m. EDT after seven months attached to the Pirs docking compartment. The trash-packed resupply ship will descend into Earth’s atmosphere above the South Pacific for a fiery but safe demise. The 76P will take its place when it launches on July 23 at 10:26 a.m. and docks just three-and-a-half hours later to Pirs.
