  1. You sure that's not where he started from?
  2. Live-color: https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpf1/v/t1.0-9/q81/s720x720/11029477_1096990033652486_4769198199965536228_n.jpg?oh=df7391d2f5323f619e7e76766d6d731e&oe=5673F051
  3. Welcome to the Pacific Northwest: We're HOT! http://video-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hvideo-xpt1/v/t43.1792-2/1363608_1096584147026408_891709733_n.mp4?efg=eyJybHIiOjE3NDQsInJsYSI6MTAyNH0%3D&rl=1744&vabr=1163&oh=85495703a19ae7130a751094af4841dc&oe=55D7BE8B
  4. According to this (FWIW): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F-14_Tomcat_operational_history
  5. I always cringe when I hear people say "chai tea". It's like saying "vino wine" or "slag plastic Mach 2".
  6. I love my hot plate... Ribbit... Ribbit...
  7. You forgot the small rudder size and brittle steel issues.

  9. This happened to me one time ... Me and my sister were returning home to OC after visiting a friend in San Diego. It was about 3am, pitch black and we were on the stretch of I5 that runs through Camp Pendleton. I was driving, my sister was snoozing and there were no cars in front of me or behind me. I was doing about 85mph when all of a sudden, I'm lit up like its Noon! I let off the gas and roll the window down, glance up and the spot light goes out on a Huey that's about 50' above ... Scared the crap out of me at first ... Thought it was cool afterwards ... -Gregg And people wond
  10. I suspect hawkwrench already knows the color he's going for, and he's just curious as to which type and brand of paint people have had the best experience with. He can tweak the color to match if need be. Hawkwrench, I've been happy with Moder Master enamels, in the past, for airbrushing. Perhaps go with Tamiya for brush painting? What's available in your neck of the woods?
  11. What's the subject and time frame?
  12. And now I'm having mental images of the "Blue Screen of Death" popping up on the pilot's helmet display.
  13. Haven't seen the Sharknados, but I'm a connoisseur of bad sci-fi. Recently had my ears perked by the incoming Japanese live-action Attack on Titan movie (because it's not weird unless it's Japanese weird), featuring a Gulliver-gone-mad premise of giant humanoids that devour the smaller normals for whichever needing-to-be-revealed reason. It's based on an animation series which itself is based on a Japanese comic book series. I made the mistake of watching the first few episodes of the animation series, discovered it actually had plot, dialogue, and character development, and got hooked into
  14. And here I was all impressed with the CGI: http://www.wimp.com/mission-stunts/
  15. Yes, definitely. The interior layout and crew positions are nearly identical in placement, entry door, overwing escape hatches etc. They put the APU in the aft end, good call there. You don't think there's enough evidence to suspect a captive breeding between an S-3 and an Orion?
  16. Radiation: It does a mutation good!
  17. It was stationed near Pripyat in April of '86.
  18. How do the fuselage lengths, diameters, and volumes compare between the P-8 and P-1?
  19. That would actually make for a great book title on the subject. You could run a follow-up with Funded to Die: Defense programs of the UK Aborted at Birth.
  20. But did you place the stock order in time?
  21. I've often wondered what you could do with a P-38 modified with turbo-props, a .50 GAU-19, and a gunnery radar/computer/sight and HUD. A GAU-19 should be able to fit within a wing of a nose-engined fighter. Biggest challenge would be ammunition conservation. Edit:
  22. Chuck Norris... Piloting a Tweet. Multi-versal Reset.
  23. I'm praying for the Air Force F-18s... http://impdb.org/images/thumb/2/23/Rock_F181.jpg/500px-Rock_F181.jpg ...flown by Jesus. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/23/f1/63/23f163fe2895582b9c53f6dc5dfddc70.jpg
