APG 128 – Tragedy at sea, Farnborough report, Airport WiFi Connectivity

As we have been celebrating several successful world circumnavigation events these last few weeks, a recent tragedy reminds us that these attempts aren’t completely without risk. 17-year-old Haris Suleman and his father Babar set out from Pago Pago, American Samoa last week in their single engine Beechcraft Bonanza, headed for the Hawaiian Islands. Just minutes after takeoff, an air traffic controller witnessed the lights of the plane heading downward to the sea, approximately 23 miles off the island’s coast. Haris’s body was recovered; his father is still missing.

Shifting to better news, it looks like airline employment continues on an upward vector. Alaska, Delta, JetBlue, and Spirit were among airlines cited for hiring increases.

Our friends Carlos and Simon of the Plane Talking UK Podcast sent us a recording from their recent visit to the Farnborough International Airshow. Sounds like they had a great time.

Wondering which US airports have the best wifi connectivity? Check out the WeFi Report results reported by MarketWired. The report also cites the hotel chains and beaches (?) with best connectivity.
