Introducing Vintage Air

A few weeks back, I mentioned my non-aviation blog, but I've also started a new aviation-related one called Vintage Air, a place that tells the stories behind vintage aviation photographs, many of which have never been published. Today's post is the first one on the blog that involves photos taken at Mojave (they were shown here in 2008, but they bear showing again), hence the mention here. There will be more Mojave photos for the next couple of Tuesdays over at Vintage Air.

Plane Crazy, October 2011: Boomerang and Guest

The featured aircraft for the October 2011 PCS was none other than the recently resurrected Rutan Model 202 Boomerang. Once Burt's personal airplane, it's now in the care of Scaled's Mike Melvill. Along with Catbird, Boomerang recently made the trek to Oshkosh for the Rutan tribute. Here's an up-close-and-personal look at this most amazing aircraft.

During PCS, this rather striking DeHavilland Dash 8, configured for an undisclosed flight test program, showed up and parked down the ramp.
