It's been well established in this forum that the media are generally ignorant with regard to airlines and aviation.


Up, up and away!

The airline is new to IND, and the article starts: "A new airline is taking off from Indianapolis International Airport. The airline is called Cape Air and it will offer daily service to Evansville and South Bend."

Could have better wording, but it sounds more like bad wording than media ignorance.

 checkmark  True, who ever wrote this article obviously lacks something.

I agree that better wording was needed but it is no where close to stating that Cape is a new airline.

What equipment are they using? Cessna's?

Since we're talking about writing quality... Cessna's what?  Smile Cape Air is using 402s. I don't think they belong to Cessna though.

I'm waiting for someone to correct my grammar.

No apostrophe needed...correct?

Did you plan this sentence since apostrophes show possession or is it a freak coincidence?

Correct. Apostrophes show:
1) A contraction: "Is Cessna going to going out of business? No, Cessna's going to be around for a while". In that sentence, "Cessna's" stands for "Cessna is".
2) Possession: "Does that building belong to Boeing? No, that is Cessna's building". In that sentence, the apostrophe s indicates that Cessna owns the building.

It is not correct to write, "He owns three Cessna's". The correct version is "He owns three Cessnas". When making something plural, you don't use an apostrophe.

Now, before anybody objects, I guarantee you I used some commas above when I shouldn't have, and didn't use them when I should have.

With a few exceptions, generally speaking, media = no clue / just reading off a teleprompter. When it comes to aviation, I've found this to be true about 99.99% of the time.

I think most of us here on a.net have found that to be true.
