First Victor-model UH-60 helo rolls off line at Corpus Christi depot ahead of 2021 fielding

WASHINGTON — The first Victor model of the UH-60 Black Hawk utility helicopter produced at Corpus Christi Army Depot rolled off the line last month ahead of a 2021 fielding, according to the U.S. Army’s program executive officer for aviation.

The Victor model converts a Lima-model Black Hawk from an analogue cockpit with a new digital one. This replacement better matches the capability of the UH-60 Mike model, the latest variant of the helicopter. But its success could serve as a springboard for the Army’s future vertical lift backbone, which will allow mission systems to seamlessly plug into the architecture of the aircraft.

The Army partnered with Corpus Christi Army Depot, Texas, to convert “L” models into new “V” models at a rate of 48 aircraft per year, which has been called too slow, as it would take 15 years for the service to produce all 760 aircraft. The Army

As the New York Jets turn their eyes toward the future amid an 0-4 start, Le’Veon Bell is reportedly on the trade block. 

Per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets are “shopping Bell with the hope of trading him sooner rather than later” leading up to the Nov. 3 trade deadline.

Albert Breer of The MMQB added the Jets have had contact with teams about Bell, and they could be “willing to settle for a late pick and/or back-end player in return.”

Bell’s tenure with the Jets has been fraught with tension seemingly from the time he signed with the organization in March 2019. 

After Mike Maccagnan was fired as New York’s general manager in May 2019, Mehta reported head coach Adam Gase “absolutely did not want to sign” Bell and “made it clear that he didn’t want

Adore Beauty’s valuation raises eyebrows ahead of IPO

Quadrant has agreed not to sell more shares until the company releases its FY 2021 results.

Adore’s founders Kate Morris and James Height will earn $45.9 million each by selling 40 per cent of their holdings. Their individual stakes will fall from 19.3 per cent to 10.8 per cent each.

The founders’ remaining shareholdings will also be escrowed to prevent further sales, but for unspecified time periods.

Quadrant bought its 60 per cent stake in September 2019, leading some professional investors to ask why it has only waited just over a year to sell its ownership interest. The likely answer being that Quadrant believes now is a good time, given soaring e-commerce valuations.

On the plus side, Adore will still be led by its founders over the long term, with most great growth businesses on the sharemarket led by founders.

The move has furthered speculation the tech giant is set to reveal new speakers and headphones at an event that will also see the announcement of the iPhone 12.

Apple has a history of removing products from its stores that could compete with its own gadgets. It stopped selling Fitbit devices in Apple stores ahead of the launch of the Apple Watch in 2015.

According to Bloomberg, audio products made by Bose, Logitech and Sonos have all been pulled from Apple’s shelves. Presumably to make way for a rumoured set of over-ear headphones and a new version of the HomePod smart speaker.
