Aerotech News and Review – July 22, 2022

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.

Welcome to the July 22, 2022, issue of Aerotech News and Review. Our cover story is how A-10 Thunderbolt IIs from Davis-Monthan AFB, Ariz., were at Edwards to conduct Ace training.

Also in this issue, we highlight the reactivation of the 445th Test Squadron at Edwards AFB, the visit of the new AFMC commander to Edwards, and news about NASA Armstrong’s involvement in the Advanced Air Mobility National Campaign. And in High Desert Hangar Stories, Bob Alvis shares the story of the Fisher P-75 Eagle, a General Motors aircraft that was built using wings from a P-40, the tail section from a Douglas SBD dive bomber, and the landing gear from an F4U Corsair.
