Welcome to the Aerotech News and Review digital edition! LOVE this illustration of the X-59 on our cover! Another amazing aircraft which will flight test in the skies above “Aerospace Valley” – read about the advances being made in quiet supersonic technology in this week’s issue of Aerotech. Also in this edition, photojournalist Linda Reynolds spends some time with NASA Chief Scientist Al Bowers (page 5) and gets a peek at his very special autograph collection (Hint: it’s out of this world!) In this week’s installment of High Desert Hangar Stories (page 6), Bob Alvis takes a look back at the very early days of aviation record-setting, with the story of Silas Cristofferson and the Whitney plane – a tale of persistence and one man’s quest for glory, as mankind first experienced the joys and perils of flying higher and higher above the earth.

And finally, we welcome Cathy Hansen back to the pages of Aerotech this week, with the first in a series of columns featuring the history of aviation and aerospace at Mojave Air and Space Port. This week, Cathy brings us the story of the mammoth “Guppy” aircraft and its various configurations, designed as an air transport solution to ferrying massive rocket parts from California to the eastern U.S. in the 1960s (page 10). All this and MUCH more aerospace and defense industry news for your holiday weekend reading enjoyment, in this week’s edition of Aerotech News!
