They’re still here! The Indonesian Air Force Jupiter aerobatic team’s appearance has survived the current diplomatic spat between Singapore and Indonesia, caused by Jakarta’s naming of a new warship for two marines who bombed an Orchard Road building here in 1965. The pair were tracked down, put on trial and executed by Singapore, which is upset by the naming. Indonesia said that the Ministry of Defence here withdrew invitations to more than 100 of its military officers, to attend the airshow.
There is growing interest by the FAA and the aviation industry in angle-of-attack (AOA) indicating systems, and Bendix/King is entering that market with the new KLR 10 Lift Reserve Indicator. The KLR 10 is available now for experimental airplanes.
