Airborne 06.22.18: Ballooning Record, Vietnam Pilot Returns, B-1B Resumes

Also: Surf Air Defaults, Chicago Airports Chief Resigns, FAA Has Openings, AAL Executive Cuts

After more than 6 months of preparation pilot Bill Smith of Louisville, KY completed a flight to nearly 32,000 ft. on Saturday June 16. According to a Balloon Federation of America Facebook post, Bill flew his brand new Lindstrand 105 named Phantom during a perfectly executed high altitude flight. The weather conditions were perfect, there wasn't a cloud in the sky and Bill actually covered more vertical distance (6 miles up, 6 miles down) than he did horizontally, landing less than 7 miles from where he took off. You know that freedom you enjoy? This is about one of the men that kept it safe for you... Maj. James Blair White went missing in Southeast Asia on Nov. 24, 1969.

Also: K2 & Robotic Skies, Autonomous Aerial Vehicles Competition, K State Grad Cert, Commercial Drones at JFK

A drone operated by authorities in Ensenada, Mexico, led to a significant decrease in overall crime in the city. Ensenada police say that over a few months, their single DJI Inspire 1 drone has led to more than 500 arrests and contributed to an overall 10 percent drop in the crime rate, including a 30 percent drop in residential robberies. Over the past four months, the drone has flown an average of 25 sorties per day. The drone is deployed based on 911 call volume.

ANNouncement: Now Accepting Applications For Oshkosh 2018 Stringers!!!

An Amazing Experience Awaits The Chosen Few...

E-I-C Note: There's very little we can say yet, but there is a reason why this may be THE year to throw in with ANN to cover the extraordinary event that is OSHKOSH. Like in years past, we have something up our sleeves -- actually SEVERAL big somethings -- BUT, this year, they could be some of the biggest upgrades/surprises we've pulled off yet -- so we're going to be changing quite a few things about how we cover Oshkosh, as a result. IF YOU want to be a part of this unique adventure, speak up NOW, rather than later, because we're going to looking for the best volunteer folks we can find and are planning to do so ASAP.
