I found this page a few days ago.  Pretty neat, a virtual tour of the cockpit of an English Electric Lightning.  :tu:

That is really cool!  I love how it tells you what everything is when you hover over it! :tu:

Yep I thought that was pretty neat.  I remember as a kid seeing NJ Air National Guard F-106's out of Atlantic City doing practice scrambles.  Those old pure interceptors were hot rods, all straight line performance.

In one of Brian Cox's earlier series,in order to explain the layers of the earths atmosphere,they go to Thunder City in Cape Town.

Brain gets straped into the Lightning T-bird. A Hunter T-bird goes along as camera plane. They cruise along til the Lightning driver firewalls it,and pulls the nose up. IT JUST SMURFS OFF! I mean,I know it'll leave a Hunter for dead,but really!

Can't remember much else of the program,funnily enough!

There is no beginning,or ending,and for this we are thankful,cos now is hard enough to understand!

Well the C-17 came in today, and I got to load it!  That's a big friggin plane!!  I could only get one pic while I was on the way back down to our hangar.



they are very big,  however, this picture will make you somewhat question that thought   :think:




If I can help, let me know

It was hard for us to find a place big enough for us to get the C-17 in to load, so I honestly don't think we could even fit a C-5!

Spent some time at one of our local airfields yesterday. The place is also home to the 2 air ambulances that serve the NW of England.

Just a teaser, I took some great pics at this museum but they'll have to wait for Sunday when I get to my computer. Here's my nephew and a C-5  :D

Oh Tom! An F10wonderful! How did you know :dd:

I'm guessing she's ex-New Jersey ANG? With the Jersey Devil on the tail?

And is that a A26/B26 Invader in the background?

Good eye John, that's an A-26 behind the Voodoo.  The 101's painted in active USAF colors.  The NJANG flew these instead of F-101's:



This F-106 is painted in Delaware ANG colors, though it was an NJ aircraft in service, one of the last actually.  The Jersey Guard was the last Delta Dart operator, retiring them in 1988.  The museum is on Dover AFB in Delaware, the Air Mobility Command museum. Lots of neat transports on display, and a C-17 took off while we were there!  I've got a ton of pics to post when I get home. :tu:

It was a very cool place for sure.  Here's one more pic until I get home tomorrow night and put a whole bunch more up.  Anyone know what this is?

This rather monochromatic Airbus A330 was on the apron at Aldergrove today


Try as I might I couldn't get a look at her registration

Curious, looks military as the registration is so small
