Have actually seen this once. No one took ownership at the ammo point. I sure dont blame them either.
Yep that’s my excuse when my HH6 is away lol
Haven’t seen an X-29 in a good long while. Interesting airplane.
Good or bad, I mostly like strange things. Subarus. Odd planes…motorcycles…
Some here. That’s why I like Harriers, XB-35s, P-38s…
There’s one hanging at the Air Force museum in Dayton. It’s fun to stand under it and just gawk at the peculiarity of it.
It’s right next to the Valkyrie, though, so a lot of people miss it.
Curious how the military folks feel about drone usage?

One of the things about firearms that always sticks with me is that it is easy to harm another from a distance with no harm to yourself. I always attach that to what I learn here at USCCA and in my CCL class. Never escalate.
The professor for one of my grad school classes in 1988 was a retired Air Force major general (2-star) who had been the XB-70 Program Manager. The aircraft was a HUGE national defense success, even though never fielded as the B-70, because it caused the USSR to develop and field the fleet of MIG-25 Foxbat fighter-interceptors specifically to engage the B-70s at high altitude. Thus, the marginal cost of the XB-70 program to the US compared to the major costs to the USSR of the MIG-25 program was a big Cold War win for US.
Small world. My father-in-law was North American’s chief engineer.
I hear “Flight of the Valkyries,” but I see “Carol of the Bells.”
As a former assault pilot, I absolutely love this scene. I had the honor of learning to fly helicopters in the Huey at Fort Rucker in 1990. What a terrific machine. There was a period back then where Army initial flight training was done in the UH-1H Iroquois, better known as the Huey. I am so grateful to have gotten to fly her. After instruments and land nav, I transitioned into my primary aircraft, the UH-60A Blackhawk.
