Aerotech News Digital Edition - June 26, 2020

Hello everyone, and thanks for checking out the June 26th issue of Aerotech News and Review! COVID-19 is pushing Aerospace Valley to innovate yet again – the highly anticipated Aerospace Valley Air Show, which puts Edwards AFB back on the air show circuit after an absence of more than 10 years, is going to morph into a different type of event in response to current public health concerns. Lovers of military hardware and all “things with wings” can still look forward to an awesome display of technology and air power, but this year we will have to be content to view online or from a distance. Organizers at Edwards are looking to coordinate a week-long series of events featuring an emphasis on STEM education, culminating in a possible “parade of planes” in partnership with NASA and Mojave Air and Space Port. We can still expect to see some outstanding aerial displays in the skies over the AV, as well as some up-close looks at aircraft and other hardware available to the public online.
