As you may have heard, Airborne now comes to you TWICE a week, Tuesday and Fridays, (with occasional exceptions for special event weeks and associated coverage).
Each week, you’ll get your dose of Airborne on Tuesday as well as Friday, allowing us to make the news more timely for you. There was big news for Boeing Thursday as Farnborough draws to a close. The Seattle based plane maker announced that United Air Lines has placed orders for 150 new 737 airplanes, including 100 of the new 737 Max 9s. Of course there's another big airshow coming soon - maybe you've heard of it? EAA’s Airventure in Oshkosh plans to honor two great veterans groups this summer – namely the Doolittle Raiders and the Tuskegee Airmen in a salute to the Greatest Generation in the Air. All this... and MORE in today's episode of Barnstorming!!!
Monday's announcement that Hawker Beechcraft had entered into an agreement with Superior Aviation Beijing for the purchase of the Wichita planemaker may have been what's known in the business world as a "stalking horse," according to some analysts.
