Crew Reunites With Flying Fortress

Ten World War II veterans, age 89 and up, all of them former B-17 crewmembers, went for a flight in EAA's Boeing B-17G Aluminum Overcast on Monday afternoon, in Oshkosh, Wis.

FAA: ADS-B System Is Complete

ADS-B is now installed nationwide, the FAA said on Monday, although services won't be available at all air traffic facilities until 2019. "The installation of this radio network clears the way for air traffic controllers to begin using ADS-B to separate equipped aircraft nationwide," said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta in a statement. "It will also provide pilots flying aircraft equipped with the proper avionics with traffic information, weather data and other flight information." Of the 230 air traffic facilities across the country, 100 are currently using ADS-B to separate traffic, according to the FAA.

152 The Trainer Of The Future?

Textron Aviation doesn't agree but AOPA apparently thinks the Cessna 152 may be the trainer of the future and it has embarked on a "non-profit" project to see if it's right. AOPA Monday confirmed widespread rumors that it's refurbishing "several" 152s (we've heard three) by an undisclosed shop to see if affordable training aircraft can be pulled from the existing fleet and presumably have at least some of the modern bells and whistles available in modern aircraft.

Pilots Fired For Getting Lost

The Air Line Pilots Association is stepping to the defense of two pilots fired by their airline after they got lost over the barrens of the Canadian Arctic. ALPA says First Air "rushed to judgment" in firing the experienced pilots. First Air, which serves remote communities throughout the Arctic with gravel-runway-adapted Boeing 737-200s, said the pilots didn't follow the airline's navigation procedures when they wandered more than 150 miles off course on a flight from Iqualuit to Rankin Inlet.
