Airborne 05.25.12: SC 787s, Chuteless Skydives, SpaceX Heads For ISS!!!

Also: NTSB, Part 145, Cessna, Sling, Gipps, Gliders, AirVenture Cup, L-39 Down, Pesky TFRs, FAA Goofs (Again) and B-29s To Carolina!

Just about the time we thought we had this week pretty much done, we found out otherwise.

Two major stories took place as we were putting the script to bed for Airborne 052512... namely the first flight of Boeing's 787 Dreamliner from the much discussed South Carolina production plant... as well as an amazing skydiving FIRST whereby an experienced Stuntman jumped form a helo at 2400' using a modified "Wingsuit" and LANDED on a specially prepared cardboard runway (used to cushion the impact) without opening a parachute -- pretty amazing. An NTSB study found that in 2011, 10 of 102 accidents involving experimental amateur-built (E-AB) aircraft built by their owner went down on their first flight. After a last-second glitch aborted the launch of the first commercial flight to the ISS on Saturday, a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket lifted off from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida in the early-morning hours Tuesday carrying a Dragon capsule with a load of supplies for the crew of the station. We have ALL this and SO MUCH MORE in this week's edition of AIRBORNE!

As always, PLEASE keep sending us your feedback and ideas... you have no idea how important that is to us as we evolve the Airborne mission. As we listen to your critiques, we're getting a far better idea as to how to tweak and fine-tune future Airborne programming to fit your needs. We think you're going to like what we have in mind for the future.
