    Power in the Pines Open House & Air Show 2018

    Post pics, the F-22 more than makes up for the lack of Thunderbirds.

    Hawaii lava flow

    I see you haven't logged in for a couple of years, but wondered if you were still in Pahaoa? I see there are evacuations in that area

    RAF Mildenhall photo thread

    The last part reminds me of the top secret aircraft crash at Boscombe Down back in the 1990's.

    Airman To Be Awarded Posthumous Medal Of Honor

    It makes me sad to think someone that dedicated and passionate is dead.

    I am thinking that you should write a book Gary. Not only are your stories interesting, but they are well written.

    Last flight of the Vulcan

    A Vulcan display rivals the F-22 for "how on earth did it do that?" moments. Thanks for the heads up.

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    I guess its the cost that makes me question the purchase. Tamiya kits are mighty expensive and I have already invested a lot in F-14's.

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    The question is, do I persevere with the 3 Hasegawa kits I already own or buy into the hype and get the Tamiya kit........

    B-2 Retirement

    A few years ago I was at an airshow at which both B-1's and B-52's were attending. The B-1 has an issue with its landing gear and had to divert to another airfield. Later in the day I was standing by the B-52 while the pilots talked to people. At approximately the same moment someone asked "Why is the B-52 still in service if the B-1 was meant to replace it?", the repaired B-1 appeared overhead. One of the B-52 pilots pointed at the B-1and made a snide remark about the B-1's reliability, then started laughing. I am surprised by the low number of B-2's ready at anyone time, however that is still a serious amount of firepower. Is there issues with the reliability of the stealth coating?

    HpH 48th scale B-36 Model

    I had a look too and found nothing. Also, hyper-scale may be the most poorly laid out forum on the net!
