Aircraft Update for 21-Mar-2016


Updated: 1720 EDT - 21-Mar-2016


Please note that each day's report is frequently updated as information becomes available. The subscriber copy is automatically gathered/distributed at 1400 EDT daily, so any updates added past that time will only appear on the site directly. They will not be captured in the subscription copy for the following day.

The only other alternative would be to hold any updates that happen after 1400 until the following day, but that isn't fair to the readers who come directly to the blog only..and that is about 90% of the people.

At the end of the day, what I am saying is that if you are a subscriber, it is still a good idea to check the site itself as well.
