New Orleans Lakefront Airport by Dan Luke
CNN video: NEW looks bad; partially under water. Heavy damage to most buildings, particularly the large Millionaire FBO west of 18/36. Wonder how long it will be before we make the $100 muffaletta trip to Lakefront again--if indeed we ever do? -- Dan C172RG at BFM

Hurricane hunters? by xerj
The site is down at the moment, but if I'm understanding it correctly, do these guys actually penetrate hurricanes in P3s and Gulfstreams? Do they go IMC flying into hurricane cloud??? If so, how the hell are they not constantly stalling as they are buffetted by the turbulence? I'm pretty sure...

Palm Springs FBOs and alternatives ? by grubertm
I am planning a day trip to KPSP in a few weeks. Has anyone been there recently ? Which FBO should I go with: Atlantic or Signature ? What are the landing / tie-down fees ? Would it be better to land at Bermuda Dunes and take a cab to downtown Palm Springs instead ? - Marco

Local Channel 5 is flying its Robinson 44 helicopter up and down the coast, sending back video. Holy ****. This is far worse than we were being told even this morning. Whole sections of Biloxi are leveled. Multi-story casinos have been driven all the way across Hwy 90 and into neighborhoods. ...

EPA update by Skylune
Well, I did hear back from the EPA concerning a local GA airport's efforts to get an exemption from regulations concerning fuel storage.
