PSA crash at 40: A page of San Diego history ‘written in blood’ – The San Diego Union-Tribune
It has been 40 years since a PSA 727 smashed into a Cessna over San Diego, killing everyone onboard both aircraft and some on the ground. There were a couple looks back in the media this week, and I thought this one was a good read. It’s remarkable to think about just how far we’ve come since then.

Norwegian Air drops four U.S.-Europe routes; Scotland, Northern Ireland axed – USA Today
Norwegian’s grand experiment with 737s across the Pond doesn’t seem to be working out as planned. Flights from Hartford were already cut.

Royal Air Maroc retires its last Boeing 747 superjumbo aircraft – AirlinerWatch
