On this day in 1996, John F. Kennedy airport unveiled a new aircraft arresting system made of crushable concrete to bring aircraft to a safe stop if they overran a runway. Jointly developed by FAA and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, JFK Airport was the first to install the Engineered Material Arresting System (EMAS), and now, the system is in place at 68 U.S. airports.

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
Believed to be: STS-1 Columbia on final approach from her first return from orbiting Earth for 54.5 hours, April 14th 1981.
