As an unrepentant aerogeek, I must say that this thread delivers.

May be sacrilegious / OT to post a cage, so I apologize in advance for possibly impinging on certain sensibilities... but this was back when I worked for Rutan, predating my now all-consuming motorcycle epiphany by about three years.

Thought it unique enough to include here, though.

Twin Lakes Air Park

I was riding today and saw this guy at the end of the runway preparing for take-off. You can tell he is a airshow pilot. He saw the camera and started the smoke.

From Ardys Kellerman to Dick Rutan, wow. Great thread.
I'm an Aerogeek without an aero.
My boyscout leader was an Air Force guy. We used to go to Wright-Patterson AFB every year for a campout. The highlight of the trip was climbing around the junkyard and digging around the carcases of decommissioned planes. I believe one of them was an F-104. We really dug the XB-70, and, IIRC, the had a Blackbird in the annex building. Around the same time, my sister lived about a mile from Selfridge ANG. We used to sit at her pool and watch F-4s and other goodies flying just like watching traffic on the road. The yearly Air Show was the best.

Later in life, I used to camp on State Land right on the border of Wurtsmith AFB. B52's and KC 130s(135s? the tankers anyway) doing touch and goes at 05:30 is one hell of an alarm clock when you are less than a mile from the runway!

Great pics. Keep em coming!

A Cobra AH1F attack helicopter at Veterans Memorial Park In Kremmling, CO. Sitting in the gunners seat during a 120-degree bank-over is definitely an E-ticket ride! (My motorcycle is just out of the photo to the right.)

That is F101 Vodoo, I was a minute late getting a ride in a two seater while it was stationed in England. Very hot airplane for the day. Held the ground to 20K (??) ft speed record for its time.
