Time To Speak Up, Folks!
The cheerful elves that
toil endlessly at ANN look forward to doing a number of special
issues each year... though none many be as pivotal as the two that
are done on either side of New Year's Day. For the fifth time
around, ANN will be presenting a look at 2003, on December 31st...
looking at the stories that made the year interesting and
remarkable, and January 1st, 2004, we'll look forward.
Let's face it, 2003 was a helluva year... both in terms of the
victories that we produced (some surprising ones, to boot) for
ourselves, as well as the fights that didn't exactly go our way.
We'd hear from YOU as to what you think were the most important
stories, people, planes and products of 2003 so that we may
properly represent what YOU think made 2003 a pivotal year for
flyers everywhere. Please consider carefully and share what
you think are ALL the moments and items that make 2003 stand out...
and be sure to clue us in, in detail.
Then... on January 1st, 2004, we're going to look forward, just
as we do every year. We want to hear from you, as well, about
the stories that you are concerned about that may have an effect on
our collective future.
What do you think will happen to aviation in the start to second
100 years after the Flight of the Wright Brothers? What
aero-problems are going to get worse? What gremlins will finally
disappear, or find a resolution? Who's going to be a player in all
this? What planes and products will be prominent? What do you hope
for? What do you fear? Fill us in... it's time to be heard. Just
send an e-mail to the link below and we'll get right to work.
