Airborne 06.15.12: Cessna Buying HBC?, CV22 Down, Biggest Order EVER For BizJets

Also: SNC Lawsuit, LHFE Warbird Fight, CFM56 Record, Gov Visits Kestrel, L-39 Crash Fallout, Gary Powers' Silver Star... and MORE!

OK, we keep saying it was a wild week... and we haven't been lying -- but it seems that there is no end in sight to real honest-to-goodness Aero-News.... we just wish it was always GOOD Aero-News. As ANN was putting this episode of Airborne to bed, ANN received some interesting inside info that asserts that Cessna may make a play for bankrupt HBC--interested mostly in the King-Air line.

Also; the Air Force has confirmed an accident involving a CV-22 at Eglin AFB--thankfully with no fatalities but there were five injuries requiring transportation to hospital facilities -- we wish those crew-members the best as they recover.

In the largest aircraft purchase in private aviation history, fractional jet company NetJets will purchase up to 275 Bombardier Challenger aircraft and will also acquire up to 150 Cessna Citation Latitudes. A Pilatus PC-12 went down in Florida, last Thursday, resulting in fatal injuries for all six people on board. The plane was being flown by a Kansas resident who was returning with his family from a vacation in the Bahamas. The plane went down in the Tiger Creek preserve near Lake Wales, Florida, and there appear to be some evidence of structural failure prior to impact. 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.
