APG 156 – Ouch. That Stings!


Posted on February 20th, by Capt. Jeff in Podcast. No Comments

The FAA released its proposed ‘Flexible’ Rule On Small UAS earlier this week. While satisfying several concerns, large commercial entities such as Amazon.com are not happy.

A third-party vendor for United Airlines made a mistake in calculating the Pound-to-Danish Kroner exchange rate, resulting in trips across the pond being offered for just £52 ($80). Thousands of people took advantage of the mistake by purchasing their trips in kroners.

An Alaska Airlines flight enroute to Portland, OR returned to Los Angeles International after a woman was stung by a scorpion. Ouch. That Stings!
