Business & Commercial Aviation News from August 1965Jessica A. Salerno
The August 1965 issue of Business & Commercial Aviation included these news items as well as the aircraft in the image gallery:
- "The three days of the Reading Show were unquestionably the finest back to back sunshine hours anywhere on the Eastern seaboard." - Torch Lewis, B&CA
- The Bellanca may be the airplane that Jerrie Mock uses for future speed records. It would have to be stripped, including removal of upholstery and battery, to bring the empty weight down.
- Growing disappointment of business and airline jet pilots, with inherent drawback of C- and X-band weather radars at altitudes above 30,000 ft. is spurring manufacturers to look harder at the feasibility of dual-band equipment.
- Bulter Aviation has begun demolition work of Marine Air Terminal at La Guardia Airport. Although the terminal has an ideal and prominent location at the general aviation ramp at LGA, it has been unused since JFK Airport opened (prior to then, it had been an international terminal and provided facilities for supplemental air carriers).
