Ever wonder what became of all the fuel drop tanks we littered SE Asia with? (and then left with our tail between our legs because the administration didn't know how to fight a war then either. Not that we should have ever been there in the first place. Was there a lesson in there?)

Saw that story on the internet still great to see that with some adaptation something useful could be created.

HaHaHa!! You think government is capable of learning a lesson. The last conflict we fought without political restrictions was…hmm, I'm not that old (and I am old).

I'm no fan of war, certainly not the most recent "red line" debacle, and in retrospect, a lot of what went on the last 10 years didn't need to, it has been at great cost, much greater than the money spent. What we do need to learn in America is that if there's a just reason for a war, then fight it like it's a "war", actually win it, and come home. The world might respect us more, forget liking us, that obviously isn't going to happen, accept it, defend your turf and go on. The world doesn't like Russia, but when they say something, people listen. Problem is the people drawing red lines don't go, our best and bravest do, but the policies are made by jerks that go to the local DC watering hole at 4:30 every day, not a tent in the muck or sand. T'was forever thus, and probably forever will be. Ah for a "statesman", someone motivated by right and common sense, surely we could come together as a country and get behind that........on second thought, I doubt it.

Gunny and I are going to shoot a new Citation CJ2+ the first weekend in October. A buddy of mine just brought it home from Cessna yesterday afternoon. We'll shoot it out of KTKI, hoping for some clouds because the landscape is ravaged by the Texas summer. Although, we can always use the beauty of a clear Texas dusk to make up for that..........last night from 7PC, at 1/15th...........

That would be Click & Clack, Jim... or the Smothers Brothers. Either pair should be co-philosopher/kings.

If someone where to paint a P-51 like this now ... could you imagine the discussion.



But, to repaint Clay Lacy's P-51 as anything except "as we know her" would also be a shame.
Anyone who went to the Air Races in the 70's like I did remembers Snoopy in the back of Clay's P-51. He did win in 1970, not sure if Snoopy was GIB during the race or not.

Couple o' links for y'all.

First up; I made a blog post about Reno Air Races! Written largely from the point of view of someone who has not attended before and was finding things out as we went along, since that is what happened... Enjoy:

And I just came across this; flying underwater in a new kind of submersible:

Good story. I would change the statement that many go to see the Unlimiteds to most. Without the Unlimiteds Reno is toast. Matt broke the deadline in the Silver also, he did not cut a pylon. Both Matt and John Bagley in Ole Yeller broke the deadline in the Valley of Speed.
