Aero-News: Quote Of The Day (04.24.14)

"HR 1775 was introduced in an effort to further prevent and deter any attempts at gaining access to the cockpit. It calls for secondary barriers to be used during times in flight that the cockpit door needs to be opened for crew restroom breaks and meals. I respectfully ask you to release HR 1775 in the House of Representatives for an immediate vote." Source: Open letter to Congressman Bill Shuster (R-PA), Chair of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, from Melodie Homer, the widow of Flight 93 First Officer LeRoy Homer Jr.

Also: Canadian CFI Fired After CNN Appearances, Forecast Says More UAVs, Funny Flt Attendant AVW, Avidyne/Trego-Dugan...

It would be harder to find a more respected Military leader than Former Blue Angel Boss, Greg McWherter... and yet, somehow, something that occurred during his two tours as the Angle has gotten him into trouble and the Navy is keeping VERY quiet on the details...

Airborne 04.18.14: SpaceX's Historic Pad, Sikorsky Going Presidential?, EAA B17

Also: Airmen Support Pilot's Son, Beyond The Blue!, More Wrong-Way SWA Fallout, Missing WWII Airman Comes Home

This is a reunion that nobody will forget, and EAA's B-17G, Aluminum Overcast, was at the heart of the gathering.
