Aviation News, Space Stories, Drone Dispatches, UFO Rumours
#24

It’s Monday January 21st and here is Redspan Aviation News #24.

In this edition:

1. Chicago pilot offers reward of $20,000 for location of lost TBM Avenger.

2. Seeing the stars could become even harder for some.

3. Are drones the new UFOs?

4. Singapore Airlines celebrates 60 years of flying to Hong Kong.

My name is Ben Lovegrove and here is this week’s round-up of aviation news from high altitude to below 400 feet.

Each week I bring you selected stories about aerial activity; from space exploration to general aviation, from drones to UFOs.

Head over to Redspan.com to find out how I can make marketing videos for your aviation business.

So chocks away then.

1. Ron Carlson was ferrying his lovingly restored 1945 Grumman TBM Avenger from Phoenix to Chicago when he and his backseat passenger Ken Franzese had to bail out over the White Mountains of northeastern Arizona.

They were over the most mountainous part of their journey, flying level at 12,000 feet when there was a loud bang and smoke started to flow out of the engine cowling.

Ron, who has 15 years experience as a bush pilot, was unable to locate any suitable terrain for a forced landing.

With the airspeed decreasing and losing height he and his passenger were quickly running out of options and they agreed to bail out.

Both men were rescued but the whereabouts of the aircraft remains a mystery.

So last year Ron took out a full page advertisement in The Independent, a local newspaper in White River, Arizona.

The ad offered $20,000 for anyone who could provide him with the location of the aircraft – and the reward remains unclaimed.

With the winter’s snow covering the area at the moment, the hope is that the spring thaw will finally reveal the remains of the aircraft.

Let’s hope that in the spring of 2019 Ron will be reunited with his beloved TBM Avenger.

To read Ron’s description of the flight and the bail out visit tbmavenger.blogspot.com.

2. Those of us who live in urban areas are familiar with the light pollution that prevents us from gazing in awe and wonder at the night sky.

You have to go far into the countryside to escape most of the light pollution from towns and cities.

And you have to go into the desert or wilderness to see the night sky as our ancestors once did.

So pressure groups who campaign for a reduction in light pollution are not best pleased with the idea of putting billboards in space.

A Russian startup called StartRocket has proposed putting billboards in space.

They would be built using small satellites called Cubesats and positioned about 280 miles up.

The reaction from astronomers and others has been overwhelmingly negative.

However, given the fact that most people live in light polluted cities and don’t bother to look at constellations anyway one wonders if this idea would be met with some enthusiasm after all.

3. An article published on WeTalkUAV on January 18th asks the question, “Are drones the new UFOs?”.
