ANN Hits Historic Milestone... And Plans For Future
Aero-News Network (ANN), the aviation industry’s premier
online daily aviation aerospace news resource, is marking a
significant milestone this week with the premiere of its 1,000th
podcast scheduled for Friday, January 26, 2007. This achievement
features an interview with 85-year old Bob Hoover, considered one
of the foremost aviators in the world and whose personal trademark
is a wide-brimmed straw hat and wide smile.
"We've ordered 54 777-300ERs already to help us plug
the gap left by the A380 on routes like New York, Sydney and
Melbourne. We're now going to order 12 more 777-300ERs for delivery
hopefully in 2008 for the same reason."

Emirates, to Bloomberg. With the new order, Emirates stands posed
to become the largest Boeing 777 operator among the world's
airlines... due in significant part to delays in Airbus' A380
