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

SYDNEY (Reuters) – Cash-strapped Qantas Airways Ltd on Wednesday launched a range of pricey athleisure clothes as its latest revenue-raising scheme to help weather the coronavirus pandemic.

The branded range includes A$150 ($107.46) T-shirts and A$425 cashmere sweaters designed by Australian Martin Grant, and comes after recent sold-out sales of bar carts from retired Boeing Co 747 planes and business class pajamas and amenity kits.

Qantas has grounded the bulk of its fleet and raised equity and debt to boost liquidity during the pandemic, which has seen it announce plans to cut nearly 30% of its workforce. It is bracing for a A$10 billion hit to revenue this financial year because of border closures and lower travel demand.

Linda Strobel (Grace’s mother) wrote to Jaime Castle, the president of Obagi. She expressed to Castle that “People with disabilities are not represented. Would you consider Grace as one of your models?” Linda said “We have this huge population of people with disabilities that are often very invisible, and they want to be seen, they want to be heard, they want to be represented as part of the population.”

The letter received a positive response from Castle. “When [Castle] got the letter, she was ecstatic. She walked down the hall
