Aircraft notes.

What a welcome relief! After a miserable month of March mishap madness, ACC's flight safety record did a one-eighty, not a single incident of flying foolishness in April. We salute commanders and aircrews alike for their refocused attention to detail and back-to-the-basics of aviating as we've flown, fought, and won. As forces continue reconstitution, we implore all to remain vigilant. Despite no longer jinking real AAA and SAMs, the [P.sub.k] of the ground is still 1.0, and you and your wingman may still be on a collision course. Go enjoy a baseball game as we strive to extend our "no-hitter" flight safety streak.
