That Hyundai roof has a greater payload capacity than my truck!

Morning Jim, thanks, I'm doing OK. It's taking longer to get back on my feet properly than I had hoped, but at least it's still getting better. One step at a time. Looking forward to the stress test of the Cleveland airshow over Labor Day weekend.

Erich

Steve Comber's day job is architectural modeling; that platform is way over-engineered. He told me he's had five guys up there at one time, but I suspect none of them were my size. He even claims that adding the platform smoothed out the aerodynamics that the roof rack itself had screwed up, and improves the gas mileage...

Well Zim, if we had a "Do you want the shot, or not?!" Traveling trophy (now isn't that a neat idea?!!!!) it would most certainly be awarded to you this week. Sorry that you were unable to capture your elusive Vulcan air to air, but your tenacious dedication is admirable.


Thanks, Jim. The forecasters got it right: solid low overcast and drizzle all across the south of England today. The Vulcan launched out of Doncaster, up north, but RTB'd without ever making it to the sites down south where it was expected to display.

I'd been given a pass to Little Gransden's air-and-car show today, but after evaluating the forecast and knowing that I had to be on site before 10am and wouldn't be able to leave until after the event finished around 5pm, I elected instead to spend the day at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, which I hadn't visited back at the beginning of July when I attended Flying Legends by hiking into the Naughty Field. What a rich aviation heritage the Brits have! One of my favorite exhibits was the Operations Room from 1940. Duxford was spared any serious damage from German raids through the war, and this Ops Room is the best-preserved example remaining. I'll post some photos later.

That's more really bad news, J-A. Flying safely is becoming ever more important to me as I get older.

Spent the day in Kusadasi, Turkey today. Walked through/around St. John's Basilica and the ruins at Ephesus. Again: the history in this place is simply breathtaking. I'll add more detail as soon as I can, but Internet connections are spotty and precious. For now, a semi-selfie (taken by the tour guide), in front of the Celsus Library at Ephesus.

Steve, it looks like your trip has been awesome, even if it didn't work quite as you were hoping. So glad you got to visit Duxford.
Little Gransden is a nice show but you probably made the right decision.

J-A: Jeez; not another one. Damn.

Don't worry about me... I cherish my skin and will go to great lengths to keep it in one piece.

When I set out to learn how to fly, I sought out a grizzled old vet who's taught a billion or so people to fly, because I wanted to make sure that I'd learn every possible way to stay healthy. He told me something that became my First Commandment of flying, and that I've repeated to anyone and everyone who will listen since then:

"I do not care about reaching my destination. I care about reaching old age."

I am never going to forget that, not for one stinking second.

And the last set for me tonight: Duxford's preserved 1940 Operations Room. How many movies have we all seen where the brass stand on the platform, smoking, while the underlings wearing headsets push little wooden pucks around the big board?

Great Vulcan shots, Steve. Does anyone know why the right side engines have that panel spanning the gap between them, but the left side engines do not?
