Always enjoyed workin' around A4's on the AAFB NAF Transit Line -- The F4's were always monsters to be around and the BA's were flyin' them in to NAF when I was there .. though F8's A7's and A6's were pretty cool too .. esp those A6's with gold tinted cockpit canopys.


Back in 68 we thought the Intruder was a high tech all weather marvel. With a Inertial navigation system it toted 22 MK82 bombs plus a center line tank on night missions into the heart of scary places. It was awesome in it's day.

Under the heading of "You can't make this stuff up" we are giving Egypt 20 of our newest version F-16 fighters. Aside from the fact that it is 1.6 billion dollars that we don't have, so we'll borrow it from China. Let's even suspend reality for a moment and forget that the "Arab Spring" is coming unglued at all of it's seams and Morsi wants to declare Marshal Law. Maybe we should, oh I don't know, rethink sending our latest and greatest to countries who even President Obama admits "aren't our allies......." Not our enemies...........but not our allies....." One would think that maybe we should hold off a bit to see if we can prevent our own F/16's from killing our real allies, and, down the road, possibly our guys.

This shouldn't be a left v. right argument, how about some common sense! These people are not our allies, they really barely put up with us, and that just because we're ignorant enough to send them weaponry and billions of dollars. How many times do we have to learn this lesson?

Beautiful shot Nick. I really appreciate the different tonalities in the landscape and lighting.

Makes me want to find a nice DB-5 and follow that road in either direction.

Jo, I think that is the first photo of that rock without the trail of ants going up and down (people).

Ha, maybe! There were about twenty ants on top of the Rock.

It certainly was a beautiful day to fly

Yeah, I feel as if a lot of people on the hill lack this quality....

Also, I saw that the Thunderbirds are going to perform at OSH13? That's pretty cool.

I usually think that gliders have about the best lines of anything flying, but that thing gives them a run for their money.

Very nice Tim.

That's an incredible shot....it looks like a 3D "drawing" by a computer concept graphics modeller.

I would have loved to get a shot without the people in it, but they were crawling all over it, so such is life.

It's a cool train, and all done in support of the food bank.

Tim: Jaw dropping color!

Jo: Nicely done, I gotta get back out that way one of these days to be one of the ants hehe

Steven: People, they often get in the shot, but every once in a while you can get them to momentarily move. (or at least get somewhere that can use content aware)

Great shot Tim - amazing photo of something very special. Well done.

JWilson, so is it worse than selling Phoenix Missiles to Iran when they had a harsh and cruel leadership in place? Your industry has to make a buck, so why not subsidize your industry by selling single engine fighters to radicals? Where is the risk in that?

I note that Canada has declined it's options on the JSF. Times are tough.

That's the first thing I thought, too! Awesome shot, amazing lighting on a very cool looking bird.
