Folks, I’ve been remiss for failing to post these pics much sooner than this. Between a busted computer along with life and motorcycle riding I’ve just been caught up in all sorts of stuff I didn’t take the motorcycle on this trip for a few reasons like incredible heat, massive wind, and the fact [...]
Seems the A-10 has been having an IMPACT in Libya. This is my favorite Air Force Airplane. Big Assed Gatling Gun, the GAU-8 Avenger Cannon! Kills……everything…..dead! So wander over to Buck’s Place and have a read! You will enjoy it! http://exileinportales.blogspot.com/2011/03/be-afraid.html And a link to the Wikipedia article on this outstanding example of aerospace engineering! [...]

I found this one at the above site. India is becoming a factor in the aerospace world. Considering the aviation industry was started by Kurt Tank. He designed the FW-190 which was a far better fighter than the Bf-109. Well maybe a tie with the 109G at the end of the war. Link to post [...]
Jeff should be seeing these on occasion at LAS. The new Hawaiian A330s are showing up. The best looking Airbus 330s I have seen. These are good looking airplanes. And Hawaiian Air goes to Las Vegas. Keep your eyes peeled, Jeff!
