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.
Look for some of our favorite sites, coming each day to ANN via
Suggestions for future Aero-Linx segments are always
welcome, as well.
Aero-Linx: Flying Heritage Collection
The planes within the Flying Heritage Collection were created at
a time when aeronautical discovery had evolved to aviation mastery.
Finely crafted by distinguished design bureaus with leading
technologies of the 1930s and 1940s, the main emphasis of the
collection includes combat aircraft from World War II. Examples
include US, British, German, Russian and Japanese types, which were
often pitted against each other in great air battles. These rare
survivors were researched, hunted down and sometimes recovered from
former battlegrounds and airfields. While a few specimens were
rebuilt by previous owners, the majority on display have received
restoration of the highest authenticity.
