A friend of mine's father worked in the Lancaster repair plant during WWII. He was full of stories. He also worked on the bouncing damn buster bomb, and built 14 of the 16 concord tails... his son is no slouch either.

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

I understand the newer equipment is more efficient and everything, but nothing made sounds like the military jets from that era. Nothing.

F4's, F101 Voodoos, F104 Starfighters, English Electric Lightnings etc etc.

Oh, man, the noise!

The Toronto airshow on Lake Ontario in '75 opened with five Canadian Forces CF-104's streaking past unanounced maybe five hundred feet above the lake at supersonic speed. There was a flash and blurr of unimaginable motion and then a wall of shrieking, deafening, dopler effected sound. Half the crowd was screaming in shock and abject terror. Wildest airshow opener I've ever witnessed. Surprised they got away with it, even back then.

Awesome.

I just barely remember hearing the F4s when I was a little kid in Japan; dad was stationed at Misawa. I had a line mounted F4 that would fly around and around the room. I'd watch it for what seemed like hours, imagining dogfights and bombing runs.

I'd pay almost anything to fly in one; it's still my all time favorite fighter.

The tail on the F-4 is outstandingly pretty.

Hint; it's not HAL 9000, but close.

I'd be hard-pressed to single out one I didn't like.

Edit: That one up above, there, I don't like that one.
