It has been a tragic weekend. Two warbirds flying during the Wings over Dallas Airshow, a Boeing B-17G and a Bell P-63F King Cobra, were downed via a midair collision in which the left banking P-63F overtook the Bomber from its left and took out the aft fuselage section, pretty much severing the airframe aft of the wing. The P-63F appears to have disintegrated on impact, while the two primary sections of the B-17 fragmented as they descended to impact near a highway. Robinson Helicopter has bid farewell to its founder, Frank Robinson. Robinson, 92, passed away peacefully at home. Frank Robinson was a pioneer, a man not driven by reward or accolades but by a vision that redefined the industry and forever changed general aviation. Robinson will be remembered for the design and manufacture of the R22, R44, and R66 model helicopters. SUN n’ FUN is revamping the experience at the core of their upcoming 2023 shindig with “The Island”, a property with food, vendors, storefronts, and transportation. The Island will address everything from food and comfort to entertainment and transit in one easy-to-access hub. The plan will allow a better use of space and provide a go-to spot for pretty much everything. All this — and MORE in today’s episode of Airborne!!!
