    Re: Aviation news stories

    Here is an aviation news story that came in via LinkedIn today: http://www.theonion.com/articles/ame...-worlds,31302/

    And for those who like to plan and be on top of it all when they are out flying, here is a App for iPhone that makes it all so interesting: http://blog.foreflight.com/2013/03/0...-classic-mode/

      LinkedIn today
      LinkedIn is a rather slow service then, as this news broke mid-February

          Yes the news of the merger broke in mid-February, but The Onion's take on the story is newer and not meant to be considered a serious comment on the case. (As all other stories in The Onion)

                    Next time you go flying, check that ticket and boarding pass properly, otherwise you may be in for a ride: http://www.usatoday.com/story/todayi...dakar/2327031/

                    It helps to have some knowledge of geography and pay attention to what it says on the sign at the boarding gate too.

                      Sooo??? The Harrier Jump Jet did this several decades ago.

                        Yes, but the Harrier does not have a cup holder and cost 250 million US Dollars. Oh, wait. I don't think the F-35 has a cup holder.

                              Loved the comment on the "world's least busiest" airport - 12 passengers in total in 2012! hehehee

                            Taken from smp.no today:
                            Crete-tourists were eventually flown to Vigra with a Boeing 676 leased from a Portuguese company and landed in the night at 01.45 o'clock. Chance would have it that this was the largest passenger plane has landed at the airport.
                            That is a rather rare type of airplane, isn't it???
