Re: COVID-19 Vaccine News and Discussion Thread

During CDC briefing this morning, with Walenski and Fauci in attendance, they stood behind existing mask guidance.

Re: COVID-19 Non Aviation Thread - Q2 2021

The UK is making the right move. COVID is endemic, and never going away.
You either adapt to live with it, or your economic security and quality of life go out the window.
Adults in the room understand this. COVID is here to stay.

Allegiant Air 161 "Flight From Hell" 17 Hrs LAS-SCK

Earlier this week, G4161 took 17 hours to reach its destination. It looks like they diverted to LAX first, and then eventually arrived in SCK 17 hours after departing LAS. Local news media is jumping on the opportunity: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhC0zjhhECg https://flightaware.com/live/flight/...
