AOPA’s Warren Morningstar lucked out, as you will see in this video of a huge Airbus A380 arriving at EAA AirVenture July 28. He found himself perfectly positioned ahead of at least 1,000 people blocking the view of the aircraft taxiing to the ramp, and then got a tour with one of the officials aboard and captured it all for AOPA Online. Enjoy!
Organizers of the National Championship Air Races in Reno, Nev., need to raise $500,000 by Dec. 15 to ensure they can insure the 2014 event.
Military demonstration teams will return to the airshow circuit in 2014, budget uncertainty notwithstanding.
Up against an international field peppered with full-time military pilots, the U.S. Unlimited Aerobatic Team made an impressive run on home turf.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
