There were a number of funny April Fools Day posts in the aviation world yesterday. We here at AirshowStuff were happy to contribute our own post about the Blue Angels transitioning to unmanned drones, which proved to be one of our most popular posts ever! In case you missed the others, here are some of the best (fake!) stories we saw circulating:

Michael Goulian to Race Historic 1935 Hughes H-1 Racer in Red Bull Air Race

Reno Air Racing Association to Add Cessna Class

B-36 Peacemaker to be featured during EAA AirVenture

“Rotor Floater” Helicopter Ejection Seats
(Despite the article, helicopter ejection seats do already exist!)

WestJet to introduce new ‘SmartSeat’ boarding technology

Aero News Network has a whole bunch of great spoof posts on their site, including this one:
Sonex Wins Contract With The U.S. Air Force: SubSonex Jets Will Replace Thunderbird’s F-16s
