  1. Not silly at all. It's a good question. The answer is, they don't. They can "bail out", but there are no ejection seats. Here's an interesting article discussing the topic: https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/25572/confessions-of-an-e-2c-hawkeye-radar-operator
  2. I am dumbfounded that this is 1/72. The detail is mind-blowing! Well done!
  3. Not necessarily about the kill. I'm not sure about the buno on that particular jet, but quite a few Alphas were re-manufactured into Deltas. It's possible that could be one of them. If it is one of those that earned a kill, I would think they would keep the marking on it, but who knows. As for the loadout, that would be possible. But the Phoenix would be slung from the left wing pylon, with a lantirn pod on the right. And there would likely be 2 JDAMs underneath.
  4. Was watching this video and saw this mishap. Can anyone shed some light on what happened? It seems extremely odd to hit the bow after a bolter and/or touch and go. https://youtu.be/CgMfqLzA0SY?t=329
  5. I don't post much, but I had to on this one. After seeing this and the build, I can say with certainty that you are the finest modeler I have ever seen. Kudos, Sir.
  6. Off topic, but is the jet in the article missing it's launch bar??
  7. I hope this isn't a repost, but I came across this and thought some of you might enjoy it.
  8. The Blues honoring Major Del Bagno
  9. Ah.... Very interesting stuff. Thanks for the info!
  10. I'll cut to the chase... Why is it that some (mostly early model) HUDs have 2 pieces of glass?
  11. Absolutely gorgeous. I've been looking over the pics for a good 15 minutes.
  12. Does anyone have any info on this? As is standard with YouTube, there are lots of conflicting reports in the comments.
  13. Hi, all. When do the pilots of E-2s and C-2s first get carrier qualified? Do they do it in the T-45, or is their first time on the boat in the actual aircraft? Just curious. Thx
  14. Gents, I came across this video and am in love with it. It's a video from early on in the 1997 season at El Centro. It is a great video for many reasons, but most of all because it shows these guys are human and make a LOT of mistakes prior to being "show ready". Enjoy.
  15. Sorry. :unsure: That's what happens when I have one too many and start surfing the forums.
