In our November newsletter, we quiz you on some serious tire tread, ask for your pics, learn how a pilot survives in this economy, and get an update from the NTSB...

UPDATE: What Really Caused This Crash

ImageLast month our amateur accident investigator thought he had discovered the cause of this crash. Well, the NTSB has now offered some new details, and it turns out he was partially right...

What Caused This Crash

Check Mate

ImageYou're so good, we didn't even need to show an airport in October's "Where Am I?" contest, just a famous checkerboard.

Archer Bravo member David Kroutil was the first to correctly identify the picture taken on approach to the Kai Tak Airport (HKG) in Hong Kong.

This notorious field closed more than ten years ago, but is still alive and well online, where you can watch clips of 747s battling tough cross-winds and even striking an engine or two!

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

Where Am I? - November

ImageNo, that's not a near-miss we captured in this month's "Where Am I?" contest. Just some tricky photography.

But you are seeing two of this airport's major carriers, a field that sits on the Columbia River, sees its share of rain, and sports an airport code where "X" marks the spot.

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? - November

ImageForget the fuselage. All we're going to show you in this month's "What Am I?" contest is the landing gear.

Given the seven sets of tires, you might guess it's connected to a darn big machine. In fact, it's the world's heaviest and largest airplane, even bigger than the Airbus A380.

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

Did You "Maule" This Over...

ImageLast month's "What Am I?" contest found us ready to take a dip in Oregon's Willamette River with a very capable water bird.

Archer Bravo Member Dale Long was the first to correctly identify it as a Maule M-7-235.

It entered production in the 1970s, and has found its way onto the water more than a few times with its healthy STOL skills.

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