Editorial Gripe — Today’s Aviation, ATI Note

      A Dover Wright 1a

This little space was never meant to be a bunch of endless rambling of personal opinion, but a comment (now and then) should be okay.  This was meant to be a place where people found informative and interesting stuff about a few things around the immediate area of the “author.”  Personal stuff now limits physical roaming but the principle is valid. 

The humble (?) city of Dayton, the birthplace of aviation, the “place” of Aviation Trail and a sometimes reference in this little place, tries to have an annual air show.  That may not be the biggest or the finest in the country (or in the world), but it could be considered a very special show even if it is at the “barely a port” municipal airport. 

The Dayton air show should be nearly perfect.  This year’s show was again marred by an accident.  Luckily, no one was killed, but it was a “Thunderbirds’ accident” and canceled two days of that headline act.  It’s not guaranteed that a show will include either the Navy’s Blue Angels or the Air Force Thunderbirds with precision flight demonstration. 

While accidents can happen anywhere, in some places it’s a foregone conclusion having an accident there’s worse.  The Dayton air show is one such place as it can be expected to have more knowledge about such things, and the same is the case for precision teams.  The gift of flight was given to humanity and it needs the utmost respect from everyone. 

Reaching the stars was once only a dream. Airplane
