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

Blue Angels in the A-4 Skyhawk, set to Van Halen’s Dreams

What I still consider the best airshow the Blues did, the A-4. When I was going through flight school in VT-4 on board NAS Pensacola we got to watch the show weekly when they practiced. My favorite music video of

The Bridges at Toko Ri…the real story.

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

The F-4 Phantom II; down and dirty!

I’m often asked: “What is it like to go super sonic?” At altitude, to be honest, numbers on a dial. 1.0 or 2.0 Mach is not that different from .8 at altitude. .8 is what an average airliner cruises at.

Blue Angels in the F-4J Phantom II

What many believe was the best Blue Angles show; the F-4 Phantom II. The quintessential fighter. I loved flying it! It was a beast, and was always trying to kill you, but the ride was worth it. Take it for

Wow! Back to number #1 on Amazon Aviation BSL. Thank you to my readers!

Another hoax like kill-a-thrill, mega-whoosh, software malfunction: this time an F-15

Time to de-bunk another viral internet hoax. Years ago I put to rest the kill-a-thrill internet phenomenon by showing it was a hoax. Next came Mega Whoosh, then Software Malfunction; finally and most laughably, the government of Iran. Next up

Sh!t Fighter Pilots Don’t Say

I figured when I saw the video $h!t Pilot’s Wives don’t say that it was in response to something their husbands did. I’m pretty sure this is it. chip facebook Twitter Amazon Youtube
