Airborne 08.24.16: Northrop Grumman T-X, Refurbished F-14A, Helo Cash Drop

Also: Mini-Drone, Avilution, Narita Tower, US/Mexico Av-Agreement, UK Helipads Too Small, FAA Employee Busted, Proba-3

If it was a secret, it isn’t now, as a few images of Northrop Grumman's offering to replace the Air Force’s T-38 supersonic jet trainer have appeared on the Internet as the plane conducted high-speed taxi tests last week at Mojave Airport in California. The aircraft was built by Scaled Composites under contract with Northrop Grumman. FAA records indicate it is powered by a single F404-GE-102D engine, also known as the Model 400. The High Sky Wing of the Commemorative Air Force in Midland, Texas plans to unveil a refurbished Grumman F-14A Tomcat at its CAF Airsho this weekend. The airframe is notable as being the first F-14A to shoot down another aircraft in combat. On August 19, 1981, Commander Henry Kleemann and Lieutenant David Venlet of VF-41 flew th

Airborne 08.23.16: Santa Monica Fights On, ISS Readies, ICAO Flight Plans

Also: ANN Is Hiring!, Aero-Calendar, UAV v Helo, AIA Briefs Clinton, First LM-100J, Teamsters, Smalltrack

A resolution has been considered by the Santa Monica City Council would make it a policy of the city to close the airport to aviation uses "as soon as legally permitted", with a goal of ending aviation operations there by 2018. The resolution is a complex document that reviews the past history of the airport and the original purpose of the land upon which the airport resides. It refers to an original commitment to the FAA to maintain the airport in operation for 30 years as a result of federal money infused into the airport.
