We're continue to get RAVE reviews over the debut of Airborne...
and great ideas as to where we need to broaden our horizons as we
continue to develop this program.
Episode Three continues the weekly series of Aero-News programs
that are evolving into something even more amazing over the next
few weeks. As matter of fact, this episode is solid 22 minutes in
length! Keep in mind that we're still early in an evolving program
of news offerings -- and that we at ANN don't play with the status
quo very well or for very long. We have AGGRESSIVE and innovative
plans for 'Airborne.' We will finish out the rest of 2011 as a
weekly and have plans to dramatically up the stakes as 2012
commences... and not just in terms of frequency but in a wide
variety of truly exciting and innovative ways...
And as we've emphasized previously, like all things ANN, you
ain't seen nothing yet.
