17 year old acrobatic pilot

Check out this story about Alex Land, a 17 year old that can fly acrobatics.  Here’s a nice quote from the article:

Nancy Lynn Memorial Airport Petition

There is a thread on ASB from Nancy’s son about the petition.  I wasn’t aware of this until now.  I went ahead and signed.  Good luck Pete!

Lori’s plane is missing in Africa.  Story here.  AAFO thread here (she was a racer for a time, and the AAFO guys share some of that history in the thread).

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
