Jeff,
can you please help me pick my jaw up off the floor? Thank you

That hustler shot is just wicked good, and I really like your angle on there, as well as the fabulous lighting.

Wow!!!

I never got to see the Hustler fly, nor the B-36. Sad, I am.

Great photo, Jeff!

Wellllll....I've been working in the neighborhood of 80 hours a week for the last few since we got back from Mexico, and I just really haven't had much time for reading and catching up. So I just read the last 20 pages or so. No aviation photos to share at the moment (I keep trying to catch westjet's new disney themed plane kicking around, but haven't been successful yet)...but I do have 2 from Mexico...and the family Christmas card shot:







Merry Christmas everyone...or happy holidays if that's your thing.

The B-58 is really one plane I wish I could have seen. My Dad was in Wichita with his B-47 squadron and the 58's would come in. They were a sight to behold.

That's a great shot of the Remos, Jay. But I can't quite make out who that is in the right seat next to me...

FYI, live space walk in NASA TV as they try to replace a failed cooling system pump. Been going for 3 hours so far, may have another 4 to go:

Several of my many projects while a safety/quality engineer supporting NASA involved the ISS ammonia cooling system. That system could possibly be the death of the ISS. The main purpose was to eliminate the noise from cooling fans in the equipment areas. It was interesting watching what was a good idea grow a system to where it may not have been a good idea. First, because the ammonia chilled water for cooling, this increased the cost of equipment we built to be installed in the racks. The equipment had to have inlet/outlet quick disconnects (QD) that were 3 fault tolerant (you can't have nasty water leaking in electrical areas). There was only one company who made the QDs at the time and they charged $10k each, meaning the cost of the equipment was increased by $20k. (I actually wrote a technical letter to the NASA safety panel to get this changed. The safety chairman told me while the panel agreed with my analysis, they were not going to change the requirement.)

Then, ammonia, being ammonia, began to leak at the fittings. We manufactured tools Boeing designed for spacewalks to repair the fittings. Getting those simple tools approved for flight and used for Extra-Vehicular-Activity (EVA) were very high. Then they realized the leaking ammonia might contaminate the EVA suits and cause contamination in the airlock to the crew. One of our engineers was prototyping a hand held analyzer to sniff out various hazardous gas/liquid contaminates, including ammonia. NASA found out about the device and wanted to fly it...a prototype. The problem, this device lived on the engineer's desk (well actually it sat on his file cabinet), we had no parts traceability and no certifications for materials. I was directed to do a safety analysis and prepare a flight safety report to NASA so we could get a certificate for safety to fly on the Shuttle and ISS and to be used for EVA. I was last on the agenda for the safety presentation. Before I presented my analysis, the chairman cleared the room of all personnel leaving just him, the secretary, and me. My presentation to the safety chairman was basically void of every safety requirement and I presented it in a way where most any safety/technical person would have asked about 20 questions. I got none and the safety chairman signed the certificate of flight safety at the end of the meeting! It flew a few days later on the shuttle to the ISS.

When I worked in the refinery on a unit that used ammonia in the chillers to separate wax, the first thing the Stillman told me when we met was "if you smell ammonia, it's too late". (Two people had ammonia poisoning while I was there, one died.) I just think the ammonia idea is a catastrophe waiting to happen.

Something in the Christmas spirit from four years ago, lost this cuddly bundle of fun (30 pound baby) after a diagnosis of diabetes, due to complications, 8 Nov 13, he was just about 12 years old. RIP Felix.

This shot was twenty attempts to keep the hat on, back up, and he'd tilt his head ever so slightly when I lifted the camera.

Wow, interesting stuff, Ray. I was listening to the audio as the astronauts were periodically asked to inspect one another's suits. I missed why. I don't think it was ammonia (I don't think they hadn't broken any fittings yet, just electrical connectors). Maybe fraying/damage from rubbing against things.

Edit: I take that back. Around 10am they had disconnected four fluid lines to the ammonia pump, so I'm sure they were looking for frozen ammonia snow on the suits.

Laura, so sorry to hear about Felix. He was a handsome cat.

I'm sorry for your loss of Felix, too, he looks lovely. Is that a friend I see sitting behind him? I hope you can comfort each other.
Felix must have been well behaved if that is a cat treat by his paws. My Smokey wouldn't leave one sitting there for that long!

RIP, Felix. Laura, I'm sorry you had to lose him.

As a little memorial to Felix, and to help you all get in the Christmas spirit, here's a video clip of my chorus, Sound of the Rockies, singing Ave Maria last week during our holiday show.

You can hear the entire performance rebroadcast on the KEZW-AM 1430 live stream, tomorrow (Sunday) at 2pm MST.
