Greg Shannon is a private pilot!! Today this local former Deputy District Attorney and current Family Court Master was on the other side of the bench. He stood trial and was judged based on his private pilot skills. Greg showed up prepared and with solid, practical evidence, demonstrated without any doubt that he has the skills required to safely and proficiently fly. No deliberation needed. Greg was issued a private pilot certificate and sentenced to a lifetime of freedom exploring the sky and all the awesome places it will take him. Greg has had a journey of hard work, determination, adaptation, and now success. He is an inspiration for many and we are so happy for him!! Congratulations to Greg and the instructors that worked with him on his journey, last being Ethan Chinowsky! This case is closed and now the fun begins!!

"The pilot was standing around as I got out of my wheelchair to board my flight to Portland. He followed me and the flight attendant who volunteered to carry my bag. I fling myself into my seat. He quickly asked, "were you in the military." I replied "yes."

He said, "Afghanistan 2010?" Again, although surprised this time, I said slowly "yessss."

He then told me that he recognized me, my injuries, and my face. He told me he never knew if I survived or not.

Marc Vincequere is his name. He flys w United now. Crazy small world. He was the pilot that flew me out of Afghanistan."

What has two seats and a large negative stagger? This bipe!

With a large sliding canopy, spoilers instead of ailerons, and a reputation for being "virtually unstallable,” the Durand Mark V certainly is a unique homebuilt. What are your thoughts on this 1970s design? πŸ“Έ Jack Fleetwood

An again - the legend πŸ˜ƒ

It was the end of an era #OTD in 1999 when the SR-71 Blackbird took its final flight at an airshow at Edwards Air Force Base in California. NASA Research Pilot Rogers E. Smith and Flight Test Engineer Robert R. Meyer, Jr., flew NASA 844 that Saturday. It was scheduled to fly again on Sunday, but a fuel leak prevented it. NASA 844 was retired after the final flight and placed in flyable storage, but in 2002, it was placed on static display at the Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards.

Have you ever been able to see a Blackbird in flight?

Remembering the legend πŸ¦‹

During the Cold War, no other USAF aircraft proved more of an irritant to US adversaries than the fast-flying Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. Many tried but all failed to touch the untouchable, until June 3, 1986. On that day, six MiG-31 β€œFoxhounds” performed a coordinated intercept against a high-flying SR-71 over the Barents Sea. The MiGs subjected the SR-71 to an all-angle AAM attack that even a combination of high-altitude manoeuvrability and ECM could not have defeated. Fortunately, for the US spy plane, the intercept took place over international waters, and no actual weapons were released, but the Soviets nonetheless proved their point. It is claimed that this incident was a factor in USAF’s decision to retire the SR-71 a few years later.

No clue what this was all about, guessing an overshot runway somewhere? Just saw this photo and had to share.
The rigid airship aircraft carrier USS Macon (ZRS-5), in the process of recovering aircraft. Circa 1933. USS Macon was commissioned on 1933 and served as a "flying aircraft carrier" along with her sister USS Akron (ZRS-4) which was commissioned in 1931. They were among the largest flying objects ever built in terms of volume.
When is trivia this weekend?
😁Merry Christmas SKYWARD
