At EAA AirVenture, AVweb contributing editor Russ Niles was among a few aviation journalists invited aboard the FAA's Bombardier Global 5000 technology test bed aircraft for a look at how ADS-B will be implemented in the National Airspace System. FAA Administrator Marion Blakey was along for the demonstration and, after reporters had exhausted all their questions about the new gear, it was inevitable that talk would turn to Blakey as she gets ready to vacate the administrator's post on Sept. 13. What followed was a remarkably candid self-assessment from Blakey on the highs and lows of her five-year term.
