The 'Into The Wild' bus has been airlifted out of the wilderness by the US Army

A bit tenuous, but there are some photos of helichoppers, so I guess it fits.

Best thing about the film was Eddie Vedder's soundtrack.

'Finland quietly drops Swastika from airforce emblem.'

BBC sticks it on the front page of their website, thus ensuring it's not very 'quiet' at all!

Lebanon selling most of their Hawker Hunters. Plans to keep two for future air shows.
The Lebanese government plans to sell five outdated Air Force Hawker Hunter fighter jets and three Sikorsky S-61 helicopters in an attempt to reallocate the service’s resources, a government source has confirmed to Defense News.
.....

“Based on good management and investment of available equipment, the Air Force developed a plan to replace five Hawker Hunter planes with their spare with two primary training flights. This step also comes in the context of a plan to replace the existing Bulldog aircraft, which are specialized for primary flight training, and which are expected to be stopped from flying in the next five years,” the source said.

However, the Lebanese Air Force will keep two Hawker Hunters (one with double seats and the other with a single seat) with some spare parts in hopes they can be fixed up for future air shows.

Short Stirling to be recovered.

We can only hope it's done carefully and respectfully. However, it would be good to see at Cosford undergoing restoration.
