Scramble November 2022
We leave a mild October behind us, and wait what the weather gods have in store for us in November.
Apart from the usual sections this month, we feature three articles: extensive reports on African Aerospace & Defence 2022 held in South Africa, Pitch Black 2022 which took place Down Under and a visit to the famous Basler Conversion factory at Oshkosh. Various editors and contributors made those articles possible.
Our website and social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) are very popular with you all, if we look at the numbers/viewers for some recent postings: a news item on Polish F-35s got 20,141 views, the Vulcan that ran off the runway 46,276, the first flight of the Chinese AG600M 88,698, Invader crash landing 276,544 and of course our report on the USMC Osprey stuck on a Norwegian island: 728,900!
The regular monthly sections and articles can be found at: Movements Netherlands, Movements Belgium, Movements Elsewhere Military, Military Updates, Civil Updates, Soviet Updates, Dustpan & Brush, Wrecks & Relics and Articles.

Having spent nearly twenty years with SkyWest Airlines (and operating as feeder for Delta Connection and United Express) Embraer 120 N308SW was withdrawn from use in April 2015, and offered for sale. It took over three years, but in August 2018 it found a new operator in warmer climates: Tanzania! As Salaam Air took delivery of 5H-KJS, and it was seen as such at Arusha by René Woerlee, on 21 September 2022.
