Sad Day for Aviation Week Readers

Editor's note: Just as NASA is getting ready to launch a whole new family of rockets - and commercial space is about to ramp up (Falcon 9) what does Aviation Week and Space Technology do? It closes its Cape Canaveral bureau and fires Dave Hughes (25 years) and Craig Covault (36 years) and for good measure, they fire Dave Collogan who spent 36 years writing for Aviation Daily. Go figure.

I have been reading Craig's reporting on space in Aviation Week since I was in high school in the early 1970's. Those of you who are as baffled and angered by these firings as I am might want to contact Aviation Week's leadership - Tom Henricks (President & CEO) by email at and Tony Velocci (editor in Chief) at - and please post a note of support below as well.
