ANN, with the help of Aviation Criminal's Kristy Graham, has uncovered what appears to be an enormous and ongoing scam offering aerial combat "Top Gun" type flight experiences to the public for highly discounted rates in the $300 to $400 price range. These offers are being promoted through a variety of "Daily Deals" marketing sites like Groupon, Living Social, Member Deals US, even Amazon and others. Three members of the Expedition 32 crew undocked from the International Space Station and returned safely to Earth on Sunday, wrapping up a mission lasting more than four months. An emotional ceremony before a crowd of tens of thousands on Sunday paid tribute to a pilot and 10 others killed in a tragic accident last year at the Reno air races. A moment of silence was held in memory of pilot Jimmy Leeward and the ten spectators killed last year in the horrific crash of Leewards P-51 Mustang. The ceremony also included the release of white balloons and a flag ceremony as the name of each victim was read aloud. Sunday marked the one year anniversary of the accident.
