Icon Layoffs Reported/Confirmed

Less Than Promised Production Numbers and Other Factors Spell More Trouble For Icon

Amid recent reports of yet another sinking of an Icon A5 airframe, a heretofore unsuccessful attempt to raise more capital, and a GAMA publication showing that Icon’s promised production targets are not being met, along comes news that yet another layoff has come to the company. An Icon A5 was sunk in Washington state last week after it appeared, according to witnesses, yto have suffered a hard landing... not the first time such has been reported. The airframe was seen to have sunk to wing level and required winching out of the water to recover the airframe for repair. Long rumored attempts to raise additional capital appear to be highly unproductive and promises of completing as many as 12-20 airframes per month have definitely not been reached as GAMA noted that the First Quarter production total for Icon tallied only 14 aircraft... approximately 4 2/3 birds per month.

Amid recent reports of yet another sinking of an Icon A5 airframe, a heretofore unsuccessful attempt to raise more capital, and GAMA stats showing that Icon’s promised production targets are not being met, along comes news of company layoffs. An Icon A5 was sunk in Washington state last week after witnesses reported it to have suffered a hard landing... not the first such report.

Shrinking Moon May Be Generating Moonquakes

Diameter has Decreased More than 150 Feet Over The Last Several Hundred Million Years

The Moon is shrinking as its interior cools, getting more than about 150 feet skinnier over the last several hundred million years. Just as grape wrinkles as it shrinks down to a raisin, the Moon gets wrinkles as it shrinks. Unlike the flexible skin on a grape, the Moon's surface crust is brittle, so it breaks as the Moon shrinks, forming "thrust faults" where one section of crust is pushed up over a neighboring part.
