Also: Tracey Curtis-Taylor, RC Saab Gripen, Kodiak, Airbus Subsidies, Worcester Reg'l Airport, MedEvac Foundation, Predator-Series

As promised, SpaceX is starting to reveal details of their investigation into the catastrophic loss on September 1 of a Falcon 9, its payload and other damage to the launch complex. SpaceX said in part, "At this stage of the investigation, preliminary review of the data and debris suggests that a large breach in the cryogenic helium system of the second stage liquid oxygen tank took place.

Also: Zenith Open Hangar Days, KSMO Nonsense, Recalled Devices, Piper M600, 800th TBM, NASAO, Commercial Space

The pilot of the last piston airplane based at San Francisco International Airport has sued the airport, claiming he is being pressured to move his Cessna 182 to a new home base.
