Despite recall, most aviation inspectors still out — really
Hartford Courant
If we learned anything from this weekend's on-again, off-again furloughs of hundreds of thousands of Pentagon and defense industry workers, it was the absurdly arbitrary nature of the partial federal shutdown.

WLRN-TV
Across North Carolina, many license plates read "First in Flight" — a tribute to Orville and Wilbur Wright. Their plane first flew there 110 years ago.

Ground broken on Southwest's new international terminal at Houston
By Matt Falcus
Southwest Airlines has marked the beginning of its expansion at Houston's William P. Hobby Airport by breaking ground on its new international terminal. Hobby is primarily a domestic airport with no international airline service, but corporate and general aviation traffic does regularly arrive from across the border in Mexico. The competition this generated with United Airlines at Houston's other airport, George Bush Intercontinental, led to objections. However, the transition was approved May 30 with the support of Houston Mayor Annise Parker and a 16-1 vote by the City of Houston.

Legislation planned to exempt aircraft maintenance from sales tax
Wilwaukee Journal-Sentinel
A group of legislators from Milwaukee, Wis., and the Fox Valley are seeking co-sponsors for legislation that would exempt aircraft maintenance parts and labor from state sales taxes. Aviation companies, including Gulfstream Aerospace in Appleton and Cessna/Citation in Milwaukee, have said the sales tax puts them at a competitive disadvantage because aircraft owners are choosing to have maintenance work done in states where the sales tax is not levied.
