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.
There's a story today about a 1929 WACO Taperwing being donated
to the Historic WACO museum in Troy, Ohio. While we had the link at
the end of the story, we thought it would be worth another look as
an Aero-Linx ... just in case you didn't think to click it the
first time. Museum exhibits include a WACO primary glider, 1902
Wright Brothers Glider replica, WACO 4 replica, the Mackey
Taperwing, owned by Goodrich Corp., and a WACO UPF-7. These
last two are fully functional flying aircraft.
