Welcome to the Aerotech News and Review Digital Edition! We hope you enjoy this week’s edition, starting with our look at the 10-year anniversary of the fabled F-117 Nighthawk’s final flight. The Stars and Stripes paint job featured in our front-page photo is always a thrilling sight! In other news, click through to page 8 for information on Military Retiree Appreciation Day, scheduled at Edwards AFB on May 19. Last year’s event hosted more than 300 guests – it’s sure to be a great time, make sure and put it on your calendar. And for those of you who are inclined to venture a bit further from the AV, Bob Alvis has a preview for us of the Planes of Fame Air Show, coming up this weekend in Chino. Flip through to page 10 for more information on this great event, featuring loads of historic aircraft (including Bob’s favorite, the P-38). All this and more military and aerospace industry news in this week’s Aerotech!
