APG 153 – White House UAV Crash, Lipstick Knives, E-Cigarettes, Bomb Tweets
Play

The government worker says that the DJI Phantom UAV just flew out the window and crashed into the White House lawn at 3:00 AM all by itself. Uh huh. DJI has just released a mandatory firmware update to prevent their UAVs from flying in “no-fly zones.” So, really? We expect the “average Joe” UAV/drone owner to do a firmware update? Right.

An anonymous crash investigator says that warning alarms were “screaming” for the last several minutes of the AirAsia QZ8501 flight, including the stall warning. A preliminary report is to be issued soon, although not for public consumption.

Several flights in the last week have received bomb threats via Twitter. We talk about two of them in this episode. Here’s the LiveATC.com audio.

A lot more news this week, including lipstick knives, exploding e-cigarette batteries, SkyMall declaring bankruptcy, and the Solar Impulse.
