Re: Explosion at Beechcraft/Textron facility in Wichita

A press avail just indicated no fatalities, which is great news. I hope the SkyCourier prototype is OK. I wonder what building it is in? This is a photo from Textron last week according to the article. Glad to hear there are no fatalities. https://s30121.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/SkyCourie...

Explosion at Beechcraft/Textron facility in Wichita

Just saw this on Twitter: https://www.cnn.com/2019/12/27/us/wichita-kansas-plant-explosion/index.html The damage looks bad, the article says the plant was closed for the holiday so that is about the only positive. Local media reporting 8-9 hospitalized. https://www.kwch.com/content/news/Report-of-ex...

I would guess this had a lot to do with today. The airlines weren’t on board. If they aren’t on board, no reason to continue.
