'Barnstorming' Returns!

A Little Bit of Aero-History Returns...

For nearly two decades (and spanning a number of publications), ANN Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, wrote an off the cuff column called "Barnstorming." Outside of the many requests he gets for MORE flight tests, the return of "Barnstorming" is one of the most popular requests he continues to see. Barnstorming was often political, frequently funny, usually weird, often  outrageous or a combination of all of the above. But -- they did get read... a lot. And certain ones keep popping up in the course of various conversations or emails (especially "Free As A Bird," "The Poker Game," and a few others).

He got the hint...

Jim's decided it's time to get back to basics and let Barnstorming out of the penalty box again. The frequency of publication is yet to be determined... at least once a month... or more, if something gets his attention -- and he's also promised to dust off a few of the classic "Barnstorming" pieces he did over the years and see if they stood the test of time or (as we expect) kinda fell flat on their face. Either way, it should be interesting.

So... keep your eyes out for the familiar old "Barnstorming" name and logo(s); the content may tick you off, they may make you shake your head and wonder what Campbell's been imbibing, or (best of all) give you a reason to reflect on this aviation gig we love so much... but we don't think it'll ever be boring. Keep your eyes out... the first one out of the gate is expected to be a doozy...
