Research Flights Over Front Range Part Of A Bigger Air Quality Effort
For four weeks starting July 15, NASA will be flying two airplanes, each equipped with a number of sensors, over the Denver area. Jim Crawford is the principal investigator for NASA's flight campaign, an experiment called DISCOVER AQ. The long-term goal of this campaign is to learn how to accurately measure air quality from space, via satellite, he said
"We'll be flying as low as 1,000 feet, which means we'll be easily noticeable," he said. "But you won't see us for long because at that altitude once we go over we're out of sight pretty quick."
B-29 Superfotress and the Commemorative Air Force
Fort Collins-Loveland Airport (FNL) will host 'FIFI,' the last B-29 Superfortress still flying. The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) is comming to our airport July 24th - 27th.

The Fort Collins-Loveland Municipal Airport (FNL) is your gateway to blue skies, remarkable recreation, and vibrant commerce. We’re an FAA-certified general aviation and commercial service airport.
Located in east Loveland just west of Interstate 25, we’re minutes from downtown Loveland, Fort Collins, Greeley, Windsor, and just 55 miles north of Denver—an area with a well-deserved reputation as one of the best places to live (and visit!) in the USA. We’re also the closest airport to breathtaking Rocky Mountain National Park.
Did you know?
The Fort Collins - Loveland Airport is an essential regional transportation resource that provides for a wide range of transportation needs. One of the top transient users of the airport is the medical industry. On average three medical flights per day transport patients requiring medical attention, for life saving treatments or other types of emergency care. Aircraft are able to quickly tranport these patients from areas of the State that do not have the medical resources that exist here in Northern Colorado.
