Aviation/Aviators in the newsTammie Jo Shults. The female pilot who safely landed Southwest Airline flight #1380 that experienced a rapid decompression at 32,000ft due to a blown engine.

 

Here’s some old news, aviation related from Baltimore Maryland (Harry’s hometown).   The first Mars supermarket.The idea for Mars supermarkets came in the early 1940s from Joseph D’Anna, whose location for his upstart grocery store was an apartment complex in Essex, Maryland, called Mars Estates. Nearby, Glenn L. Martin was developing an airplane called the Mars Flying Boat that could take off and land in water, so “Mars” seemed a perfectly logical name to instill local pride and recognition. His first store opened on Old Eastern Avenue in 1943. It was operated for three years in a partnership with friend Bob Baum. They decided to open a second location in the 300 block of Eastern Ave. As more joined the team, the company decided to relocate to the south in Dundalk, Maryland, where they purchased a strip center with seven shopfronts to expand their business, closing the Essex locations.

Barn Finds/Hangar Finds:  Here is a 1921 Morgan 3 wheeler. No details were listed.  Would be very cool just to keep as it is.  If this vehicle could talk. It probably has a few stories to tell.

Weather in the news:  Our Aviation Weather page has a lot of information regarding weather reports, understanding weather, and more.  We also feature severe weather videos.

Three Wheel Association (TWA):  Not really a three wheeler. A friend’s ice cycle. It runs on 3 blades.  It is powered by a working REO engine.  A very talented guy, he can build most anything by just looking at a picture.  He has built several vintage and rare 3 wheelers.

 

Click here for more pictures of the ice cycle.

Prototypes:  This month we’re featuring a Mazda RX-500 and a Porsche prototype.  Here is the RX-500.
