The best airplane in America is owned by Russians by [email protected]

Harrison Ford Reported Fair After Plane Crash by Larry Dighera
Venice, California Another facial scar for Harrison, and a blow to a vintage PT-22. Ford makes the 6 PM news (as every pilot fears). Even at 72, I would expect him to heal reasonably quickly and hopefully, fully. Nice job putting it between the trees. The hearts of the aviation community go...

Flying through rain by Some Other Guy
What really does change when you fly something like a Skyhawk through thick rain? I just do sims, and all that happens there is a lot of noise and pretty raindrop smears on the the windshield but the performance seems unchanged. What happens in real life?
