Greetings from The Aero Experience Team


The Aero Experience is a celebration of Midwest aviation and aerospace achievement. We invite you to join us as we explore the treasures of Midwest aviation through first-hand experiences. Our contributors take turns flying lead, and we are always looking for new destinations. Check in with The Aero Experience frequently to see where we will land today, and then go out and have your own aero experiences!

Where is the X-37B?

The cat & mouse game between the orbiting X-37B and amateur astronomers continues after 173 days in orbit.  It was reliably tracked until recently, prompting speculation that the vehicle may be preparing to land (or may have already landed).  It has another 97 days of designed orbital capability, so it may be another 3 months before confirmation of landing may come.  Keep your eyes on the skies!
