Airborne 08.13.18: Bizarre Q400 Theft, Female Hurricane Hunters, One Week Wonder

Also: Colorado Reservists, Flight Examiner Bribe Attempt, Boeing 737 Logjam, World Helicopter Day

An airport worker, first identified as a mechanic, and then as a ramp agent, apparently took unauthorized possession of a Horizon Air Q400 twin turboprop, powered it up, and somehow took off without permission from Sea-Tac Airport late Friday night. There are extensive questions (and few answers) as to how he took control, got the aircraft powered up, and then gained access to a runway to engage in a takeoff -- and how much supervision/surveillance surrounded the airplane. Throughout the flight, the only person on board, Richard Russell, engaged in sightseeing and radical maneuvers that included rolls and inverted flight. Russell admitted that much of his flight experience came from flight simulator gaming. A recent flight by a NOAA Gulfstream IV Hurricane Hunter aircraft to Hawaii is thought to be the first by the agency to be flown by an all-female crew, according to NOAA&rsqu

The day after Oshkosh 2018 came to a close, ANN’s Jim Campbell had the chance to be the first aviation journalist to get an early evaluation of the new Sling TSi--literally just out of the box that it was shipped in, from South Africa to Oshkosh. While it‘s unfair and improper to do a full flight test of an aircraft that barely had an hour or two on it since it was assembled in the US, the one hour shakedown flight did give Jim the chance to see if the Sling TSi has the potential we hoped it has... and the verdict so far is this... It does. The longest indoor freefall Guinness World Record has been jointly achieved by two Russian adventurers, Viktor Kozlov and Sergey Dmitriyev, in the city of Perm last month. The record took place at the FreeFly Technology wind tunnel. The skydivers flew uninterru
