Not too sure about viewing the outside view while flying, but maybe something ground level, yes.

A bit like going to see Santa when a child - you get into the rocket ship in the department store, it makes a lot of jet noise, rocks around and after two minutes you "land" in Santa's land - quite magical until, after seeing him, you walk through a door and you're back in the department store without any rocket ship!!

Well, now, that's an interesting question, Niall: I'm glad you asked. There is a chunk of Wyoming on which the rain that falls does not flow to any ocean: it's called the Great Divide Basin. The Atlantic Rim forms a piece of the border of the Great Divide Basin along, you guessed it, the Atlantic Ocean side. That is, rain falling just east of the Atlantic Rim flows to the North Platte River and eventually to the Atlantic Ocean, while rain falling west of the Rim stays in the Great Divide Basin.

Got that?

Thanks Steve. I really loved the aerial pictures that show Wyoming's terrain that you posted above. You must be so lucky that you get to see this from up above but really nice of you to post them for us guys who can't get up there

Nothing better to fly around in such a nice sky in, as a yellow Cub. Or a B-25!

Just a few of my favorite static displays from the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center near Dulles Airport. The assortment of planes there is amazing. The space shutter in the picture is the Enterprise, which had not flown with crew on board. I believe it was transported to Los Angles a year or two ago for display. In its pace, now the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center has the Atlantis, the shuttle that flew the last mission.

Thanks for looking.

Douglas

Only shoot into the sun if your initials are JA or your call sign is Ripper! I didn't pull this off too well, but I like the Jello air going on.....

Just finished reading (well listening, as I have the audio book) Frozen in Time by Mitchell Zuckoff.
If you haven't read it I highly recommend it for all aviation fans.

Fantastic story split into the 1942/3 tale of crashes and survival during the arctic winter on Greenland and the modern day quest to find the crash site and last resting place of one of the rescue planes.

I can't decide if viewing images like that would be really cool, or scary....... I have zero interest in flying in anything without windows, it messes with my middle ear something fierce. I have passed on two assignments in the v. comet simply because I know my limitations.
