Ok, long time coming, but it's just about finished, although this kind of project is never really finished. I implemented a number of elements that I've been thinking about for a long time. As the Geico Gecko says, "they really bring the room together!"

Glenn would approve.............we never got to smoke cigars and sip scotch like we'd planned when it got to this stage. Guess we'll do the equivalent in Heaven someday.

Very nice Jim! I could "sequester" myself in that space for a while.

My son JR took a couple of iPhone videos from Glenn's L39, which we now cherish, but I've not orchestrated anything high quality. If weather smiles on us this year, that is on the list to accomplish. We'll be putting Hero3's in the 25 tail and in selected subject aircraft.


Jim,

You have mail.

Wow that is an outstanding looking place Jim! I'd say go ahead and pour one in spirit anyway, you know he's there with you.

A 130J Raider from VMGR-352 on short final over the farm haze into NAF El Centro. The photo opps I've been blessed with as a member of Arizona Aviation Photographers has been phenomenal - particularly at El Centro. Back again with the group this coming Thursday. Anticipating another great day shooting next to the LSO shack

Jim, if you were a different man, I'd say you were missing a beer fridge

Just kidding, it looks great!

I was expecting a full disk on that ceiling fan Jim. That is a really nice hangar.

Sure! First time I've seen moving F-35s, not just stills. Probably haven't been paying enough attention...

Two things come to mind watching these carrier activities.
1) How do they get enough takeoff speed with that bloody great airbrake hanging upside the fuselage?
2) Much as I admire the technological achievements of all this, does anyone else find that landing on a carrier while hovering seems a little like cheating?!

When all those doors started to open just before takeoff, I expected it to transform into a truck or a robot or something.

1) I'd imagine someone is more of an expert than me on this topic, but I would assume that that speed brake door is linked to the lift fan doors.

2) Other than the fact that the carrier deck is still a moving target... but from what I've read being quoted from test pilots the F-35 is actually quite easy to handle in its vertical landing configuration.

Here us a photo of the 2nd F-35B arriving at MCAS Yuma. Once it was stopped under its cover and after it was chalked, it went thought this "venting" process. Not quite sure why, but it was blowing a ton of air in several different directions. How much of this is used on V/STOL landings and or takeoffs is something I'm unsure of. The three F-35B's at MCAS Yuma are currently grounded and not authorized to perform V/STOL maneuvers.

Thanks everyone. I'm very pleased with the results. The atmosphere in the office is exactly what I was trying to achieve, but you never know for sure if you'll nail it. Friday afternoon I mounted the prop on the wall, put books on the shelves, tweaked the lights, put a little Clapton on, sat down and soaked it all in.

Lady Jo, I think a couple of frosted pints would look pretty good on that table in the corner.

The beautiful thing is, it doesn't matter if it's 105 or 35 out on the ramp, I can put the hangar door down, light up HQ and work uninterrupted in a relaxing environment. Clients love it, whether they are aviation related or not. There's still a few finishing touches that I need to find, but they have to be things that just strike me, so it'll take time and that's part of the fun and character of the place.

I think putting a polished Mustang out in front would just cap the whole thing off very nicely.

I'm sure you knew why already...but for background for the other readers, details on the current grounding:

apparently should be back on the go next week:

Thanks for that, I had not heard anything about them even being grounded.

It's a part that they were essentially told was going to fail before the grounding ever happened sadly enough. They made some changes to the design in order to save 9lbs...lol

On another note, I would imagine the venting that Mr W. is describing is most likely them trying to vent some of the heat out of the lift fan/related assembly. They were at one point having issues with stress fractures.
