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.
What the heck is a flugtag? German for "flying day", would you
believe flugtag is an extraordinary flying contest? Since the
Flugtag premiere event in 1991 more than 35 Flugtags have been
held. Creative geniuses need apply. Design and build the most wild
machine you can. The catch? You then have to fly it. The craft must
be human powered. Jet assist is cheating. The next flugtag will be
in Baltimore, MD on October 21.
