    I live very close to Whitman AFB and get to see many different aircraft. My favorite has to be the Stealth. Every time I see it...I am in awe of how beautiful a machine can be.

    Awesome picture. I had the opportunity to tour the inside on a B once. I could no afford the ride at the time, but to be inside that plane, I flt like I was in a very special place.

    I was just reading a news article about the underwater recovery of a Stuka Ju87 from WWII, they seem to think it's in good enough shape to rebuild !!!!

    The story about the Stuka also linked a 2011 B-17 crash, the "Liberty Bell". I didn't know about it, that's so sad, one less flying B-17

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    After 20 years in the Air Force, I've seen more than my share of air shows...but there's nothing like the sound of a WWII vintage flying machine to get my heart pumping! Jets be damn--give me a big, old radial any day.
