  1. I had the unique opportunity to do a virtual shoot of Tom Reilly's exquisite restoration of the XP-82 Prototype. Enjoy! http://vintagetin.net/XP-82/
  2. A virtual view of an Iraqi military R-300 'Elbrus' (NATO: ‘Scud B’) Surface-to-Surface Ballistic Missile with MAZ-543M Transporter Erector Launcher (TEL). It is one of the most intact examples of these ubiquitous tactical field missiles. http://nasatech.net/ScudSS-1B/
  3. Here's a virtual view, inside and out, of the Space Shuttles during their final missions and Transition & Retirement. http://www.nasatech.net/SpaceShuttle/

  5. Here's a virtual view of NASA 905. http://www.nasatech.net/SCA905/
  6. Here's a virtual view of the Collings Foundation's exquisite P-38L 'Lightning'. It's considered the world's finest example of a restored and airworthy P-38. http://vintagetin.net/P-38L/
  7. The launch of the first Falcon 9 Block 5 booster is scheduled for May 10, 2018 from SpaceX's refurbished Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The window opens at 4:12 pm EDT and closes at 6:22 pm EDT. The launch will put up the first communication satellite above the nation of Bangladesh in geosynchronous orbit. SpaceX will place the comsat in a geosync transfer orbit that allows the satallite to raise its own orbit to 22,500 miles in altitude. http://nasatech.net/ntBangbandhu1_PAGE.html

  11. When the S1/S2 separation occurs, within a couple of seconds the cold gas (pressurized nitrogen) RCS fires up to rotate the booster ~180°, orienting the engines into the direction of travel for the boostback burn. On exceptionally clear days you can see the nitrogen plume (it's quite extensive and fleeting as it warms up in the sunlight) from the RCS. While there could be a nitrogen gas contamination issue because of the proximity of the separated vehicles, I wonder if that is the case because the payload is still in its fairing and environmentally isolated.
  12. TESS clears the catenary lightning wires on Pad 40 as it begins NASA's Planet Hunter mission. http://nasatech.net/ntTESS_PAGE.html
  13. The United Launch Alliance, a 50/50 business relationship by defense contractors Boeing and Lockheed, successfully launched the AFSPC-11 classified communication satellite for the Air Force. The Atlas 5-551 is the most powerful Atlas variant with a sea level thrust off the pad of 2.4 million pounds. The Atlas 5-551 vehicle consists of a 5-meter diameter fairing, five AJ-60A solid-fueled boosters and a single engined Centaur upper stage. http://nasatech.net/ntAFSPC-11_PAGE.html Next up, the launch of NASA's TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite) on a SpaceX Falcon 9 Ful
