Hello fans and friends, and welcome to the Oct. 16th edition of Aerotech News and Review! Well, the Aerospace Valley Hybrid Air Show is now part of Edwards Air Force Base history – did you enjoy it as much as we did? Reinventing the traditional air show format to accommodate unprecedented, pandemic-induced restrictions is no small task, but Team Edwards pulled it off in fine style, producing an event that played well to audiences both online and on the ground. Congrats to all on an excellent event, and many, MANY thanks to EAFB for reallocating your resources to provide this great service to our communities. We have a full, post-air show wrap up for you this week with photos and looks behind the scenes, in the latest issue of Aerotech News!
