Welcome to the Mojave Airport Weblog. This is one of the most unique airports in the world, with a huge variety of different aviation and space activities centered here, from flight test to airliner storage, from spacecraft development to antique aircraft restoration. This blog exists for two purposes: one, to provide aviation news that is often not available elsewhere, and two, as an effort to document tomorrow's history today. These pages will be updated as there's news or stories to present, and for more frequent discussions, you're welcome to check out the airport's Yahoo group at: http://www.groups.yahoo.com/group/mojaveairport.
