flygcforum.com ✈ EAA #2 ✈ DC-7: EAA’s Former Young Eagles Chairmen Take Dream Flight ✈ | flygcforum.com ✈ Everything Aviation ✈ Flight Training, Aviation Products, Travel and Leisure Services ✈ | Scoop.it

Bless the guys keeping her in the air, with such love and enthusiasm!

flygc's insight:

We were honored to have Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and Jeff Skiles of “Miracle on the Hudson” fame serve as our honorary Young Eagles Chairmen from 2009 through 2013. One of the great things about getting to know these two gentlemen was seeing how passionate they are about all aspects of aviation. We were thrilled when they had the opportunity to get checked out in a beautifully restored Douglas DC-7, a true classic from the golden age of airline travel. We were even more excited when we got to send one of our videographers along to tell the story.

flygcforum.com ✈ HNTv #1 ✈ MEADS World-Class Theater Air & Missile Defense ✈ | flygcforum.com ✈ Everything Aviation ✈ Flight Training, Aviation Products, Travel and Leisure Services ✈ | Scoop.it

Medium Extended Air Defense System

flygc's insight:

MEADS is mobile, 360-degree air and missile defense that is NATO interoperable and can defeat advanced short- and medium-range ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and other air-breathing threats. It is tested and mature, flight tested and proven. Selected by Germany as the basis for its new Taktisches Luftverteidigungssystem (TLVS), MEADS provides an open architecture that allows assets from other nations to be integrated into regional defense systems.

Glad to see they went the extra mile to fully preserve this plane.

flygc's insight:

In 2015 during a maintenance visit in Fresno, California, EAA decided it was about time for the Tri-Motor to undergo a major overhaul. Last Fall the restoration began, with it finishing just before the Spring tour kicked off in 2016.

They are ready to respond to almost any emergency situation.

flygc's insight:

It’s easy to see that pilots have passengers’ lives in their hands as they take the controls of their aircraft, but flight attendants also shoulder a heavy responsibility for the safety of everyone on board. In fact, fundamentally, that is the primary reason for having flight attendants.

flygcforum.com ✈ AVIATION INTERNATIONAL NEWS #2 ✈ Inflight Caterers Bring Five-Star Dining ✈ | flygcforum.com ✈ Everything Aviation ✈ Flight Training, Aviation Products, Travel and Leisure Services ✈ | Scoop.it

Private jets promise a level of service and convenience that the airlines can’t match.

flygc's insight:

So naturally the discerning travelers who fly privately expect exceptional quality when it comes to the meals they enjoy en route. While the best aircraft operators make this task look easy, the reality is far from that. It takes special expertise and preparation to make sure that passengers’ palates enjoy a truly five-star experience at forty thousand feet.

OK gang, here's a video clip of the Fokker D-VII arrival and assembly on May 15, 2015, at Fantasy of Flight. This beautiful aircraft was built by WWI specialist, Fred Murrin and is painted in the colors and markings of German ace Ernst Udet. We're still waiting for the final registration from the FAA, which we'll need before they can come out to sign the airplane off for flight. Hopefully, some time soon we'll get it outside in the grass.
