  • David Mars, The 1929 Curtiss Robin, and A Girl Named "Pearl"

    David Mars, The 1929 Curtiss Robin, and A Girl Named "Pearl" Or Touching Flying History, With David Mars I was at Tom Rose's Fly-In to raise money for the "Domestic Violence Shelter" and the turn out was small. Approaching from the west was a slow, high-wing aircraft that I first thought was an old Cessna, but as it got closer I realized it was traveling too slow to be a Cessna. As it entered downwind to the south and then turned final to what is more of a driveway than a runway, it looked like something I'd never seen before...

    Israel has turned the tables on flotilla activists and is conducting a “fly-out” deportation of activists who tried to sail to Gaza Wednesday, less than two weeks after a “fly-in” by activists succeeded in little more than gaining a blub in the media. One of the pro-Hamas supporters who was on the “fly-in” will participated in the “fly-out” Wednesday after the Interior Ministry completes deportation procedures. The 15 foreigners aboard the French "Dignity” boat were stopped en route to Gaza by Navy commandos, who overtook the boat without opposition and brought the crew and passengers to the port of Ashdod....

    Hundreds of anti-Israel activists arrived at Ben Gurion International Airport on Friday as part of a “fly in flotilla.” Border officials refused to grant 124 of them entrance, and they were brought to Givon and Ela prisons to await deportation. Those refused entrance – citizens of Belgium, Germany, Spain, France, Holland, and the United States – were on a list sent out to airports in advance of the planned fly-in. Another 200 of those whose names were on the list were prevented from boarding planes to Israel. Many others successfully entered Israel. From there, some continued to a Palestinian Authority-controlled...

    European authorities are preventing some pro-Palestinian Authority Arab sympathizers from participating in the “fly-in” to Israel, at Jerusalem's request. Eight activists were prevented from boarding a Malev flight from Paris to Budapest, where they intended to pick up a connecting flight to Israel. Three other activists were already arrested at Ben Gurion International Airport on Wednesday. Earlier in the day two Dutch journalists were prevented from boarding an El Al flight from Amsterdam, although they claimed that they only wanted to cover the fly-in. They insisted that they did not intend to take part in demonstrations that have been planned...

    Three anti-Israel activists from France and Belgium were arrested at Ben Gurion Airport Wednesday. Deportation orders have been issued against them and they will soon be flown out of the country. They are believed to be the earliest arrivals in a planned anti-Israeli “fly-in” to Ben Gurion Airport. The organizers of the hostile “fly-in” said activists would arrive in Israel on Thursday or Friday, and Israeli security forces fanned out at the airport on Wednesday, awaiting their arrival. Journalists, too, are on hand, awaiting to see whether the anti-Israeli forces succeed in surprising or embarrassing Israel. The activists apparently plan...
