Sukhoi SU-35 at Paris Air Show 2013

It’s Friday; time for fun. Here is the SU-35 performing at the Paris Airshow. Truly an amazingly maneuverable aircraft. In the days of Phantoms and Crusaders, even the Eagle; agility like this wasn’t even dreamed of in a fighter. chip

Blue Angels CANCEL 2013 season

It is very ironic considering my recent posts about the history of the Blue Angels. They have cancelled the 2013 season. This country is in serious trouble when the basic things can not be done. chip facebook Twitter Amazon Youtube

I was talking to my good friend Forrest Murray a few days ago about the book, The Bridges at Toko Ri by James Michener. We also talked about the movie which was very well done; it was also influential to
