Re: Winter Storm Eboni Causes Disruptions at IAH and DFW

Fun times at O'Hare today too. Heard a number of flights on final to runway 10C reporting 60-65 knots from 180 at 3000-5000 feet.

Re: 2017 Paris Air Show - Boeing News and Orders

So, the important question is - where is Randy Tinseth? He hasn't posted on his blog since early April...and is usually blogging regularly prior to the Paris show. Hope he's OK!

He did take out a large insurance policy just before the flight, and told other he wanted to take as many with him as he could.
