https://disciplesofflight.com/caf-air-power-history-tour-spring-2017/

The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) has shared the schedule for the upcoming CAF Air Power History Tour, which will feature FIFI, the only fully restored Boeing B-29 Superfortress currently in operation (though Doc’s looking to change that very soon.) The CAF acquired FIFI in the early 1970s, after she was found at the US Navy Proving Ground in China Lake, CA, and was set to be used as a missile target. After restoring her to airworthy condition, FIFI’s been traveling the country for over 40 years, providing crowds with a look at a one-of-a kind aircraft...

Figuring out Holdover Time (HOT) is usually pawned off onto the copilot. I know, because as a new copilot flying a Citation II out of KMSP, I had that book open so many times the spine was broken…so was mine. The de-ice man would call in our information and while I was writing it down, I’d use the Holdover Charts to write on so inevitably, I’d drop my notes, then the pages would start falling out of the book onto the wet floor. I flew air ambulance so this was often at 0230 in a blinding snowstorm. As captain, I relished in the revenge as I told my copilot to figure out our holdover time. When I reached the airlines...

After a round of successful public briefings in late October/early November last year discussing the first phase of the FAA’s Southern California airspace modernization efforts (called the Southern California Metroplex project), the agency is scheduling another round of webinars and public workshops to discuss the next phase of SoCal airspace improvements set for the coming months. The FAA is undertaking the Metroplex project, “which will replace dozens of existing conventional air routes with new satellite-based routes,” in order to improve the safety and efficiency in SoCal’s airspace...

Scott Kirby, the President of United Airlines, has revealed that they will be retiring all of the United Airlines Boeing 747 aircraft currently in service by the end of 2017. The airline began using the iconic aircraft as part of their West Coast – Hawaii routes in 1970, and throughout the 1970s and into the 1980s, United had 18 747s in circulation through the US, giving them the largest fleet of domestic 747s.

[This is the fourth in a series of articles detailing my journey to earning a private pilot certificate: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.]

It’s been almost two months to the day that I’ve been ground-bound, and I can hardly put into words how exciting it was running my hands over the leading edge of those wings, knowing that soon frigid mountain air would be rushing over them instead.

But, before we get into all the fun stuff, I’ll catch you up with where I’ve been for the unfortunate hiatus in my flying lessons..

In November 2015, at the request of the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and Subcommittee on Aviation, the DOT began an investigation and review of recent ATC disruptions, and whether or not the FAA was capable of managing ATC crises when they arose. In particular, they were also asked to take a look at an October 2015 radar room flooding at the Austin-Bergstrom ATC/TRACON tower...

Born in Moscow, USSR on August 18, 1921, Lydia Vladirmirovna Litvyak always had an interest in flying. Raised in a Jewish family at the outset of one of the most exciting eras of aviation, the roaring 20’s, Lydia grew up reading about aviation, and watching military pilots practice nearby, but couldn’t have a plane of her own.

Because the communist regime in place in the USSR outlawed private property, the generation of pilots that sprang up in the USA during this time (the Barnstormers and other general aviation pioneers who were able to fly because of cheap, surplus WWI planes) didn’t make its way to Russia...

https://disciplesofflight.com/korea-files-1-k-13-4th-fighter-group/

This article is the first in a series of articles, called the Korea Files, from retired USAF fighter pilot and Korean war veteran Bill Todd.

I arrived in South Korea in July 1951, after having spent a month and a half at Johnson Air Force Base outside Tokyo. My first duty station in Korea was Suwon Air Force Base, or K-13, located several miles southwest of the ancient walled city of Suwon. The air bases were all identified with “K” (for Korea) numbers. The further south you went the lower the numbers. K-13 was the main base of the 4th Fighter Group, which was comprised of three squadrons: the 334th, 335th, and 336th. Each squadron had a complement of 25 North American F-86 Sabre (F-86A) aircraft. The total number of qualified pilots assigned to the three squadrons and group personnel was approximately 120...
