Pinpoint Parachute

How often have you ended up in the ‘chute with nowhere to go? Here’s your chance to make it worth it! In this special event arena, you will be on the daylight Archipelago map. The challenge will be to locate the Fox@FB and then eject from your perfectly good plane! While in your ‘chute, you can use your joystick or keyboard commands to correct the drift so that you land on top of the Fox! You’re in for a surprise the first time you hit him!

Happy National Aviation Day!

The National Aviation Day (August 19) is a United States national observation that celebrates the development of aviation.  The holiday was established in 1939 by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who issued a presidential proclamation which designated the anniversary of Orville Wright’s birthday to be National Aviation Day (Mr. Wright, born in 1871, was still alive when the proclamation was first issued, and would live another nine years).

You can read more about it on Wikipedia.

USA Today has a nice historical photo retrospective you can check out.

And finally, here are some tips from NASA about how to celebrate Nation Aviation Day.

In honor of Nation Aviation Day, I’ve put up a gallery of aircraft of our own.  Happy Aviation Day everybody.
