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


Gorgeous! The distortion being across the river pretty much killed my shots but I was happy to get that launch while I was there Congrats again

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.


Love what you did on the bottom there, almost gives the look of being on a sandy tarmac.

Spent much time hiking, hunting and wandering in the Superstitions during my youth - even some in my non-youth. I never tire of admiring their rugged features and topography from an appropriate AGL vantage; especially in Jay's wonderful images.

The pilot and aircraft that lucks into being in Crosswind's cross hairs is fortunate indeed.

So does that mean basically it's now a VFR you're on your own type deal or is there just no flying at all?

Hi Brian:

Plenty of flying - just back to an uncontrolled field like the old days. I guess now we can stand on the runway centerline when Aluminum overcast takes off without getting yelled at by the tower manager!

Looking good Glenn! yes, KTKI will shut down around 04/01/13. I wonder how Texas Instruments is going to like flying 200M worth of Globals in and out of an uncontrolled field? These controllers are hosed too, it's not like they can send out resumes to other towers.

Someone please let me know when the women in PA gets her Obamaphone shut off, or there's 2% less in all the welfare checks going out, or we fund 2% less on the art exhibits containing a crucifix in a bottle of urine, naaa, none of that will ever happen. You can't make this stuff up boys and girls.

This all fits, the people paying for everything get penalized, and the ones on the dole roll on. Folks who worked hard, saved, bought homes with mortgages they could afford, got no help when the world imploded. In the current debacle the working stiff will again suffer the consequences, continue to pay more and more in taxes and receive less and less for it. Doesn't that seem fair to everyone? It must, we keep pulling the lever for these idiots every two and four years.
