White Star Airfield had a hazardous materials scare today as a mysterious smoking container was found in the cargo storage area. Geiger counter readings were clearly above dangerous levels when tested by White Star fire officials. Sheriff’s office hazmat teams were called out to assist in the proper removal of the material. Sources at White Star Airfield had no comment, however manager Crim Mip was seen loading his pickup with two suitcases full of carrots.
Vulture Air will begin phasing out the aging ATR 42 aircraft from its fleet this week in favor of the updated ATX 72. The ATX 72 is a twin-engine turboprop short-haul regional airliner built by the French aircraft manufacturer Erick Gregan Aircraft. Essentially a more powerful, stretched version of the ATR 42, this aircraft boasts many new features including all mesh construction.
The Boeing B727-100C is the long awaited combination aircraft from McKeehan Aviation. With its cargo containers in the forward section and 20 passenger seats in the rear, this 727 will prove to be a staple for GridEx as well as a good medium jet for Vulture Air.. Intended for short and medium-length flights, the 727 can use fairly short runways at smaller airports. It has three Pratt & Whitney JT8D engines below the T-tail, one on each side of the rear fuselage with a center engine that connects through an S-duct to an inlet at the base of the fin. The 727 is Boeing’s only tri-jet aircraft.
