Not Confirmed That Jet Was Part Of Canadian Demonstration
ANN REALTIME REPORTING 10.09.08 1815 EDT:
Officials confirm a Canadian CT-114 Tutor training jet crashed near
15 Wing Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan Thursday afternoon... but there's
no word yet on possible survivors.
Lockheed Martin's F-35A successfully flew from Fort Worth, TX to
California's Edwards Air Force Base on October 1, to begin expanded
flight testing and initiate test activities at Edwards. Flying
non-stop for more than 1,000 nautical miles, this was the
aircraft's first long-range, cross-country flight.
A Vital Topic... Deserving Of NASA's Attention (and YOURS)
Late last year, ANN's Aero-TV crews spied a truly marvelous piece of flight simulation technology... NASA Glenn's icing flight training simulator. Demonstrated at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC), we were incredibly impressed at the apparent accuracy of the model (ANN's Jim Campbell has plenty of Twin Otter time -- the aircraft used in the icing encounter sim model -- and knows only too well that the icing behavior they displayed is what he has experienced, personally, in real icing conditions).

Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract is potentially valued at up to
$300 million and covers deliveries through 2013.
