FLY In The EAA WWII Flying Fortress  4-22-15: Did you see the EAA Chapter 106 poster about the B-17 giving rides at Lawrence airport, May 22 thru 25? I didn't know the EAA had there very own B-17. As with all WWII preserved aircraft, it has an interesting story behind its history and salvation. Thank god we didn't have industrial shredders like we have today that can shred entire airplanes down to the size of baseballs in a matter of minutes. It is said that they made a little over 12,000 B-17's and just under 5,000 were lost in combat. A number of years ago, I worked with a guy named Harry who was a crew member on a B-17. He had a tremor in his right hand that was bad he could only fill his coffee cup half way or the rest would spill out. Some publications say there's 11 B-17 still flying in the U.S.

FAA Safety Seminar at Sanford  4-19-15: "Title: Gorillas In The Midst. Topic: Human Factors CLICK HERE TO REGISTERand the Psychology of Attention. Date and Time: Saturday, May 2, 2015, starting at 10:00 Eastern Daylight Time. Speaker(s): Sue Tholen and John Gary. Brief Description: How do focus and attention issues affect an airman while operating an aircraft?  Southern Maine Aviation flight instructors Sue Tholen and John Gary will lead discussions on this interesting topic. A medley of brain teasers will be used to demonstrate individual operating limitations and highlight how the brain maintains or is hampered by its ability to focus. The goal is to enlighten pilots on prioritizing tasks, especially during critical phases of flight. Location of Seminar: Southern Maine Aviation, Main Terminal.

VFR IN APRIL  4-16-15: Finally people are celebrating the nice weather. It's been a long winter and we certainly had a lot of snow, but spring appears to be finally hear. I don't think anybody will be landing at Alton Bay. Although I did go snow skiing at Loon on April 10th. There was plenty of snow on the mountain. If you enjoy looking at strange things you might be able to explain to me what the weird landscape structure in Eliot is. Some people find the most creative ways to spend their money, or someone else's money...

Good-bye VOR Approaches  4-14-15: Back in March of 2013 we did an article about the proposed decommissioning of the Kennebunk VOR. Here's some information about VOR approaches being decommissioned at Pease (Portsmouth) airports and all around the U.S.: "Subject: Proposed Deletion of Approaches in A90's Airspace On June 27, 2014, the FAA published a policy establishing criteria for cancelling instrument approach procedures (79 FR 36576 https://www.federalregister.gov/citation/79-FR-36576). Cancelling certain ground-based non-directional beacon (NDB), and very high frequency (VHF), omnidirectional radio range (VOR) SIAPs is one integral part of right-sizing the quantity and type of procedures in the National Airspace System (NAS). As new technology facilitates the introduction of area navigation (RNAV) instrument approach procedures, the number of procedures available in the National Airspace System has nearly doubled over the past decade. The complexity and cost to the FAA of maintaining the existing ground based navigational infrastructure while expanding the new RNAV capability is not sustainable.Based on the final policy criteria, 736 procedures have been identified for cancellation."
