In our December newsletter, we quiz you on five tails, chat with CNN, and run into President Obama...


My TFR Nightmare

The red circle. A common sight when the President visits. But when it covers an entire island in the middle of the Pacific, how is a pilot supposed to fly? This month, our Bravo Blogger talks with the FAA and Secret Service after an encounter with the TFR of all TFRs...

Where Am I? - December

ImageIt's winter now. So we thought we'd find some IFR conditions for your December "Where Am I?" contest.

This tail is a common sight at this reliever airport - although this kind of weather isn't - for one of the busiest aviation sectors in the United States.

Oh, and the field is named after a famous comedian.

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

'X' Marks the Spot

ImageIt's not too common for an airport identifier to include an 'X,' so perhaps we gave it away. But you still needed to know the Pacific Northwest.

Archer Bravo member Christopher Weiss was the first to correctly identify the picture taken at the Portland International Airport (PDX) in Oregon.

It's not a near-miss, just the angle of the photograph, showing a Southwest 737 rotating in front of a Northwest jet.

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

What Am I? - December

ImageWe're quadrupling this month's "What Am I?" contest, asking you to name all four of the pictured aircraft.

The farthest one might be a challenge, until you notice the engine mounted somewhere other than the wings.

Christmas bonus: does anyone know where this photo was taken?

The first person to correctly guess the types of aircraft wins one (sorry, not four) Archer Bravo Aviation mousepad.

Extreme Rubber Necking

ImageForget about a speedy tire change. Last month's "What Am I?" aircraft needs more than a call to AAA.

Archer Bravo Member Manny Corrao was the first to correctly identify it as the Russian-built Antonov AN-225.

Originally designed for the Soviet space program, it's the world's largest and heaviest aircraft. And there's only one flying.

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