                        Editor's Note:
                        Aviafora Newsdesk has been reliably informed that the US Secret Service operative tasked with greeting Marine One at Newport yesterday was in fact a former college mate of Mr Obama and was very pleased to see him.

                                      Recent movements from Austria ..

                                      MD902 uplifts ski accident victim from Flachau in Austria on 30th December:

                                      "White-out! What white-out?"

                                      (Not so much of an issue on take-off .. but can be a bit 'tricky' on landing if one isn't prepared. Something brightly coloured in the snow upon which to fix one's gaze during the hover and touch-down can be of great help!)
