Getting some of our money back from the Chinese Just sold a dozen stock images to one of their aviation enterprises! Something satisfying about making money from China and or the Middle East. Well something satisfying about making money period, but those to sources are extra satisfying.

Still not accepting your absence on HQ Thursday Glenn........but I guess that we don't have to arrange your PPR for AFW, correct? Don't want to try to influence you unduly, but I spoke with Hutchins BBQ today and they were really looking forward to smoking you some ribs..................

Having recently seen space shuttle Atlantis close up, I couldn't resist the temptation to see the Russian Buran shuttle while I was in Germany. Seeing up close the similarities and differences in the shuttles built by both countries was fascinating. This is Buran OK-GLI, their version of Enterprise used for the approach and landing tests. Unlike ours which was a pure glider and had to be lofted on the back of a 747, OK-GLI had engines attached so that it could take off under its own power. They did 25 manned flights testing the autopilot, as the actual space worthy Buran made its successful maiden and only flight unmanned.

Nice pictures of the Buran. Ars Technica did an interesting piece on it a few weeks ago, which can be found here.

A2A imagery from my father's files. Dad said this photo was taken at his CO's request for their 1958 squadron Christmas card. Even as a kid, I never liked that big black nose on the F-86D. Dad took this image using a Folmer Graflex K21 camera that produced a 5x7 negative from roll film. He said the K21 was a heavy and unwieldy tool in the back seat area of a military fighter.


Just awesome!

@Tim - Your Reno images are great as always, but sepia Bear just knocked me out of my chair - WOW!

I guess I'm slow, I just discovered you can hover the mouse over a photo in the thread and view the photo in 'lights out' and view the next or previous.

Thanks for telling me that I'm even slower! Unfortunately if you then get to a photo, say 10 before the one you started on and hit the X it takes you back to where you started and not to where you are now on the thread (and there's no page number identifier) - if there were either of those you could search for a photo you remembered much quicker!! On my wishlist for improvements please, Fred!!
