In our August newsletter, we see lots of potential for a runway incursion, a classic trainer, and a pilot mad at himself because of what his toes told him...


Can You Find the Problem?

ImageThere's something very small and somewhat hidden in the picture to the left that could have caused big problems in our latest blog...

In August's other postings, we witness the moment in aviation that scares us the most, and ponder why an A380 went thump in front of thousands...

Beach Combers

ImageIt didn't take long, pardon the pun, for our members to figure out where last month's "Where Am I?" picture was snapped.

Archer Bravo member John Reeve was the first to correctly identify the photo taken above Southern California's Long Beach Airport (LGB).

It's also known as Daugherty Field, named after the famous barnstormer, and accommodates a heavy mix of commercial traffic and flight training on its five runways.

Congrats John, an Archer Bravo Aviation t-shirt is on the way.

Where Am I? - August

ImageWe find a traffic jam in this month's "Where Am I?" contest.

This international destination has the distinction of being the closest airport to the city that it serves, less than a half-mile from the center of town.

Oh, and a main road crosses the runway. But before you scream runway incursion, know that future plans call for a tunnel to alleviate long wait times for vehicles and aircraft.

The first person to submit the correct guess gets an Archer Bravo Aviation t-shirt and bragging rights in next month's newsletter.

What Am I? - August

ImageWe all learned to fly in a trainer. But did your first aircraft look like this?

August's "What Am I?" mystery aircraft holds a special place in aviation history, helping teach many pilots how to fly. Unfortunately, not for fun, but in war.

She's nicknamed "The Yellow Peril." And bonus points if you can tell us what a "Gosport" is.

The first person to correctly guess wins an Archer Bravo Aviation mousepad.

A Hawk With A Hook

ImageLast month's "What Am I?" contest took us out to sea.

And Archer Bravo Member Bill Austin was the first to correctly identify the pictured aircraft as a Grumman E-2 C Hawkeye on short final to the USS Kitty Hawk.

It entered service in the 1970s, and sports a radar dome that gives the Navy an early heads-up on air and surface targets.

Congrats Bill! An Archer Bravo Aviation mousepad is on the way!
