I took the weekend off from blogging because I was flying.
Normally this doesn't create a problem, but for some reason I was unable to access wi-fi and had to make do with dial-up. Makes for difficulty in posting, so I gave myself the weekend off. Back on track now.
Lots of aviation news the past week:
The plot thickens in the air marshall shooting in Miami. Apparently, no witness has yet corroborated the marshals claim that the passenger said he had a bomb. However, there is no reason to doubt the official reports while the investigation continues, withholding judgment until it is completed and all the facts in.
A Southwest 737 ran off the end of the runway at Chicago's Midway airport, killing a child on the ground. The official NTSB investigation is just underway, but already lots of ideas, speculation, and lawyers circling the wagons.
In Nigeria, for the second time in as many months, a plane has crashed.
Fun times for the airline industry.
