    Six years after Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen started up Stratolaunch Systems, the billionaire’s air-launch venture brought its humongous twin-fuselage airplane out in the open for the first time today. “Stratolaunch came out of the hangar for fuel testing,” Allen said in a tweet that featured an aerial photo of the plane. More pictures were posted to Stratolaunch’s website. Stratolaunch CEO Jean Floyd said the plane’s emergence from its hangar at California’s Mojave Air and Space Port was part of a “major milestone in its journey toward providing convenient, reliable and routine access to low Earth orbit.” The plane is...

    Report Says Instructor, Student Fought for Controls Before East Hartford Plane Crash A plane crash in East Hartford was the result of a flight student refusing to give up controls to his instructor, while apparently doing everything "backwards", a police report revealed. East Hartford police Lt. Josh Litwin said in October that investigators had concluded the crash was "an intentional act," but noted that they hadn't been able to determine a motive. New documents from witness accounts reveal that Arian Prevella, a flight instructor and the owner of American Flight Academy in Hartford, struggled with flying student, Feras Freitekh. On...

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Anna McConnaughy was flying to Alaska's largest city when the announcement came over the intercom: a passenger on a previous flight had brought a pet snake on board. The passenger had gotten off the plane. The snake had not. "The pilot came, and said, 'Guys, we have some loose snake on the plane, but we don't know where it is,'" McConnaughy said Tuesday. Unlike the movie "Snakes On A Plane," this one wasn't venomous. Mostly, it was sleepy. A little boy, one of seven passengers on the Ravn Alaska commuter flight Sunday from the Alaska village of...

    A few months ago I wrote about how you can encrypt your entire life in less than an hour. Well, all the security in the world can’t save you if someone has physical possession of your phone or laptop, and can intimidate you into giving up your password. And a few weeks ago, that’s precisely what happened to a US citizen returning home from abroad. On January 30th, Sidd Bikkannavar, a US-born scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory flew back to Houston, Texas from Santiago, Chile. On his way through the airport, Customs and Border Patrol agents pulled him aside....

She should be flying private.” One passenger on the flight told TMZ Ivanka ignored the guy and tried distracting her three kids with crayons. The airline removed the unruly passenger, who screamed, “You’re kicking me off for expressing my...

    Where’s Samuel L. Jackson when you need him? Because, we can put up with a lot of things, but a snake dangling overhead while we’re on a plane is not one of them. That’s the situation passengers on an Aeromexico flight from Torreon to Mexico City found themselves in on Sunday. Just take a look at this video. It is positively terrifying! Aeromexico said the flight made a quick landing and animal control took the stowaway reptile into custody. “The procedures carried out for this flight are currently being evaluated to determine how the animal entered the cabin, and measures...
