  1. Two Sukhoi Su-30MKIs Flankers, supported by an IL-78, will make a rare public appearance in the West when they attend the Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire on July 14-15 to mark the Indian Air Force’s 75th anniversary. http://www.alert5.com/2007/04/indian-pilot...to-display.html
  2. Why settle for pictures when you can watch the video of the first flight <_< http://www.alert5.com/2006/12/f-35-first-flight-video.html
  3. Willmar Municipal Airport needs to raise $50, 000 by Dec. 5 or the Navy will cut up the Tomcat at Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport. More information here http://www.willmar.mn.us/menu/departments/airport/f14.htm

  7. When the first 747-8 passenger version rolls out in 2010, the VC-25s would have been 20 years old. Boeing's line will switch to the dash 8 version sometime in 2008. Its a matter of time the Air Force One switch to the dash 8. Unless the USAF decides to go European like the Marine One.
  8. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/busi...igboeing05.html Boeing sold two VIP passenger versions of the new 747-8 recently and rumours are that it could be the new Air Force One.

  14. http://www.alert5.com/2006/09/norad-interc...n-aircraft.html Four F-15s from Elmendorf Air Force Base and two CF-18s from Cold Lake were launched on Thursday evening to intercept Russian Tu-95s off the Alaska coast. The Bears had been participating in an annual Russian air force exercise near the coast of Alaska and Canada. Two F-15s intercepted the planes by making visual contact and verifying their identity. The CF-18s did not intercept the Russian bombers.
  15. The Chinese are trying to learn as much as possible about carriers so that they can kill American carriers if they were to interfere in the Taiwan Straits. Another Sovremenny class destroyer was delivered recently, and their sole purpose is to strike a U.S. carrier battle group. http://www.mosnews.com/money/2006/09/29/chinadestroyer.shtml
