There are no guarantees in life, but I'll tell you that allegiances run very deep with my folks at Alliance. I'm guessing that they will have what they say they will have. Pilots still have to fly, some level of currency has to be maintained. I'll keep Y'all posted, but I'm betting on a great show.

oh right...don't know if this was posted or not yet, the crack that grounded the fleet was deemed an "isolated incident" and all F-35's have been cleared to resume flight:

So, legitimate question...who thinks that they will actually manage to come to some sort of a solution in time for the teams to be flying by the end of the summer?


Things like these have an interesting way of quickly resolving themselves........ during an election year.

hope everyone had a great weekend! I'm so on the fence with the F-35. I'm not sure why Canada opted for a single engine bird. I know this whole idea of standardizing was pretty popular but I dunno.

Killer stuff Mike. You've got a thing going with those T-6's

OK, you'll recall my collage of the F-16 that I wanted to present to the CO at Luke. Well it turns out there was one little problem with my plan. The pilot is wearing an arm patch that says "Dave". I'm told that pilots and aircraft don't always match up and pilot "Dave" apparently had to borrow the CO's Viper because his was going through maintenance. Oh well, live and learn. Here is the final image.

thanks Jeff! The T-6 is the dance partner we get the most of it seems (nobody's complaining) but I'm told we might have an A-1 at some point soon *fingers crossed*. I had a Mustang on my wing once but that was quite some time ago and not much from that day turned out.

Sorry to hear bout this Dave guy. Still a worthwhile exercise I think, you did some terrific work with you composite through all the stages!

Is this a little better for "all eyes on target" ?

It's not a Mustang, but it is Merlin-powered. Pic of the Falcon 9 that launched last Friday.

You know, I always thought all the Lancair needed was a little more engine.

Awesome!
Taking the philosophy used for choosing engines for my RC planes...double what's needed! Wonder if he's approaching the 2-1 power to weight ratio? HaHa!

Seriously they need to figure out a way to leave large chunks of the cowl clear to display that engine. It's beautiful!

He will need more than a big motor. The NXT Relentless has a 780 in it also. No turbos. It's fast, but it is blown off the course by the smaller engines with the twin turbos.
