Brrrrrrrrr! I've got five kids looking at me and asking me what we can do in this stuff. I'm thinking we pull the John Deere out, hook a rope to a long sled and see what happens.
Great ideer!! A whole buncha fun will be what happens!!!

Hm, bit of a crosswind there! That last video is interesting; even after he has landed you can see the plane trying to weathervane on the runway something fierce. Fly it until the brakes are on...

Hmm... wouldn't it be better to fly it 'til the thing has stopped?

OK Bill, one castle it is....
Oh wait, you want to visit a real castle? Well if you come up to Northumberland your biggest problem is “which one”. Better to see several – I have five (yes 5) within 30 miles of my home.

This is Alnwick – one of the five.

Beautiful shot.
Any ole castle will do, the older the better, .
Love the architecture and look of them, kinda like all the beautiful brick houses in Texas.

Just put the John Deere away for (I hope) the last time today. It never had a chance to cool off, we just came back by home to thaw fingers and toes and hit the tanker for hot chocolate.

Not something you see too often on a US-based USAF fighter - a fancy paint job. 425th Fighter Squadron/Royal Singapore Air Force F-16 celebrating 20 years of training at Luke AFB.

Don't some CAGs get special paint jobs like that sometimes?

Most Naval squadrons have a "color bird" that carries the 00 buzz number and troops the colors for that outfit. AF rarely, if ever, does specialty paint schemes.

In fact, the F-16 that was painted in colors to match a 1930's training squadron (yellow wings and blue tail) as part of the process to sell the idea of QF-16 drones was ordered back to normal grey before that airframe went to the Boneyard in Tucson.

Boring...
