We’ve received some beautiful photos from our readers, including this one from RAF Cadet James Hancock, taken at this year’s SUN ‘n FUN. We’re still looking for more photos to publish in our two print issues in December, as well as online. In fact, we’ll be publishing a reader photo of the day all during December, so get your photos to Editor Janice Wood by Dec. 1 for consideration.

Last week Lycoming Engines hosted Stu Horn, president of Aviat Aircraft, who flew the company’s Aviat Husky CNG to Williamsport, Pa., which is powered by a Lycoming IO-360-A1D6. The engine was modified to be the world’s first dual-fuel compressed natural gas (CNG) aircraft, and can be powered by CNG or 100LL aviation gasoline with the flip of a switch. Members of the Lycoming engineering team gathered to examine the engine and its modifications during the visit.

Not GA, but still pretty cool for those who love all things aviation: Fox News has posted a feature about the Jumbo Stay Hostel in Stockholm, Sweden, right next to an airport. The converted Boeing 747 fuselage has 29 rooms, most with four beds — two bunks each — to maximize space. All rooms have flat screen TVs and access to a common restroom, like a traditional hostel. “But if you’ve got captain’s money to spend, stay in the luxurious Cockpit Suite or Black Box Suite, which each boast their own bathroom and roomier beds,” according to the report.SONY DSC
