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.
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.
This is a website devoted to collecting and providing
information on the aircraft of a remarkable man, Louis Bleriot, who
changed history with his pioneering flight from France to England
across the English Channel on July 25, 1909. A dedicated community
of aviation history enthusiasts preserves his memory today by
restoring his surviving original planes, creating functional
replicas of his unique designs and sharing their fascinating
experiences with others.
