Digital and Print Journal of Aerospace, Defense Industry and Veteran News, serving the Antelope Valley (“Aerospace Valley”) and Edwards AFB, CA. An AerotechNews.com Publication. – June 10, 2022
Welcome to the June 10, 2022, issue of Aerotech News and Review. In this issue, we take a look at the various Memorial Day ceremonies held around the greater Antelope Valley – Palmdale, Lancaster and Mojave.
In this issue’s High Desert Hangar Stories, Bob Alvis is looking for a ‘nickname’ specific to plane spotters in the Antelope Valley as there’s no place else on Earth that you can see such a wide variety of aircraft in the skies.
