Tweet Picks:

@e_russell House bill would give airlines $37bn in payroll grants, $21bn in loans with limits on executive pay, share buybacks and dividends, via @David_Slotnick.

@e_russell “I’d say the A380 is probably the most endangered species of aircraft at this point.” – @AirlineFlyer on @flightradar24’s #AvTalk podcast.

@FBenenati We have begun flying a portion of our 777 and 787 fleet as dedicated cargo charter aircraft – getting critical goods into the hands of the businesses and people who need them most is extremely important right now.

@RAeSTimR Bright spot among the gloom – UK aerospace advanced manufacturing sector, including Meggitt, Airbus, GKN, Thales and Renishaw race to develop emergency medical  ventilators for #Coronavirus (FT) #avgeek #COVID19.

@WandrMe Even in these trying times for the aviation industry there’s a glimmer of optimism peeking through in some areas.  Take, for example, this Alaskan operation that want to expand its charter service out of Deadhorse to include scheduled flights and US Mail contracts.
