  1. The World Air Power Journal Volume 42 is definitely worth spending some effort to find; it even included cockpit photos. Regards, Murph
  2. I've never seen those markings. You might want to try searching at the Scalemates data base: LINK Regards, Murph
  3. Hopefully they include "nestables". Regards, Murph
  4. The canopy breakers started showing up on the C and D models round the 90 to 91 timeframe. Regards, Murph
  5. I am sorry to hear that. Regards, Murph
  6. But I stand by my view that your statement was extremely judgmental and completely out of line. You may feel differently and I respect that. But I feel your statement issued before any facts have been shown says a lot more about you than it does about the pilots involved in the incident. But regardless, have a blessed day sir. Bill Based on what has been released so far, the final NTSB report is going to be rather scathing. Regards, Murph
  7. No, I never said that. I made a general statement of fact. You can take that statement however you want. Regards, Murph
  8. I spent 20+ years in the USAF as a pilot flying aircraft from the Mighty Tweet up to the F-15C and teaching others to fly them. After retirement I've flown the 747 and then spent another two decades working for a defense contractor teaching 4th and 5th Gen fighter pilots. In that 40+ years of aviation experience I've found that some pilots were exceptional, some were average, and some were below par. That was true of every community, including the airshow community, with whom I have worked. If you think they are the exception to this rule, then I have a bridge to sell you. Rega
  9. Some of the individuals flying these "warbirds" have no business being in a cockpit. Way more money and ego than brains. Regards, Murph
  10. That set looks worth checking out, but the linked website shows it as "not available for sale." Regards, Murph
  11. I don't know of any kit that represents those areas as clear. Regards, Murph
  12. Some equipment might be removed to save weight or cost, but generally they're pretty close to the usual front-line example in most areas. Think about it. How much would it cost in time, effort, and money to remove the wiring, switches, and whatever required to carry a live weapon versus the minor weight savings? Regards, Murph
