Foolin around on duty...
My ´91 Vmax in front of an ex-yugoslavian Galeb Trainer on an Airfield near Cazma/HR
Nice, bet the Max will pull as many G's.
Damn! I swore I coulda seen that bomber there when I went back to show my wife and kids all the places I lived in TO. I grew up in every part of Metro TO, used to ride my bicycle from the Beaches to High Park every week, every summer while in my older grades! So they're restoring it, eh? Awesome! Too bad you couldn't snag that pic while it was on its pillar - you could just touch the tailwheel if you were 6ft tall and stretched on your tip-toes. Would be awesome, too, if you could get a photo once its restored
In Kitchener, there's a spitfire mounted on a small building (Spitfire Emporium, I think its called) - Hey wait, I might have a pic, here it is:
Its mounted on the roof, so it may take some fancy set up to get a bike in there.... yet another excuse for an even longer ride. Too bad its December.
Leave it to the state of Delaware to put a traumahawk on a pedestal......
Both are Prowlers (EA-6B)?
The one with the vertical stabilizer protrusion is an EA-6B, the one with the standard tail is the A-6.
I remember seeing that car in the parking lot when we visited Scaled Composites. I was flying the rescue helicopter when you guys won the X-prize.
No boyz, the RV4 is towing the bike.....not the other way around. RV's rock!
My new ride sat behind a friends plane just before we went on short 'jolly' last month
UK riders ( and some overeseas too) will have heard of the infamous 'Cat and Fiddle Run'..........well this is the pub at the top of the same name.
Ladybower Reservoir and Derwent reservoir where 66 years ago the brave aviators of 617 Squadron practised their attack on the German dam 'The Mohne' which was very similar to the Derwent Dam in Derbyshire about 25 miles east of Manchester. 617 Squadron later became known as 'The Dambusters' after successfully breaching The Mohne and The Eder dam and inflicting some damage to the third target The Sorpe.
You can see Derwent Dam this shot
I know, on the photo the bike is missed. But I want you to show you one of my favorite airplanephotos I took in summer 2004 at Laage, near Rostock, Germany on a Spotter-Day.
The photo shows the "Blue Lightning" of the 31th squadron "Boelcke". I had to ride (by car, at this time I owned no bike) 800 KM (500 Miles) to took this photo. This wasn´t unusual for a Spotter. But the crazy fact on this story is, that this Tornado was based in Nörvenich at the Boelcke Squadron, which isn´t more than 5 minutes away from my home.
I saw this Jet sometimes in the air, but never had the chance to took a photo of it. Till the Spotterday.
Now this Jet is inoperable and is used like a Gate-Guard but not viewable from the outside.
