The first of two winter blasts on Feb. 6 collapsed the roofs of three hangars next to Dulles Jet Center at Dulles International Airport. Jets inside appeared to be in rotation for liftoff after the building collapsed on their tails. Dulles was closed Feb. 10 by the second snowstorm, this one complicated by high winds and blizzard conditions. These photos were reportedly taken by a fireman responding to the scene from nearby Fairfax County.
NetJets has added a new safety feature to its long-range fleet: a doctor who is always in.
An elite field of the world's best aerobatic pilots got back in the air Oct. 16 after days of waiting out weather.
Question: I hold an FAA pilot certificate and will be doing some flying in Germany. Can I complete a flight review with a German flight instructor?
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
