Aerotech News Digital Edition

This week’s edition is our follow-up to the Los Angeles County Airshow, where thousands of hardy souls braved the Antelope Valley “breezes” to enjoy a day of classic and modern air power. From the thrilling aerobatics of aerial demonstration teams, to inspiring stories shared by living legends during the day’s History Panels, to the thunderous roar of the F-22 Raptor as it swooped and streaked through the skies – what a DAY! We have a look back in words and pictures all ready for you, provided by photojournalists Linda Reynolds, Dennis Anderson and John Battey – just click on the link above for some great weekend reading.

On a more somber note, the air show and military worlds experienced shock and sadness this week at the loss of USAF Thunderbird pilot, Maj. Stephen Del Bagno, in a tragic accident at the Nevada Test and Training Range on April 4. We have been covering this developing story for you on our website, and with regular updates posted to this Facebook page. Click through to page 15 of this week’s edition for more on this story. We also have coverage of the March 30th ground-breaking for the Air Force Flight Test Museum, including some reminisces shared with columnist Bob Alvis by ordinary members of our community with strong ties to Edwards AFB.
