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.
Read about aces like Pappy Boyington, Butch O'Hare, Chuck
Yeager, Manfred von Richthofen (The Red Baron), Eddie Rickenbacker,
& Erich Hartmann, or about pioneering aviators like Charles
Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart, and Howard Hughes. Or great planes like
the P-51 Mustang, P-38 Lightning, P-47 Thunderbolt, B-17 Flying
Fortress, and the Sopwith Camel. All the World War II theatres,
services, and fighter planes are included: P-47 Thunderbolt pilots
with the 56th Fighter Group of the 8th Air Force, Marine Corsair
aces of Guadalcanal and the Solomons, carrier based Navy Hellcat
pilots, and USAAF fighter pilots who flew the P-38 over New Guinea
and the Philippines.
