Common Sense, the rarest of all senses
I love the creative designs of Burt Rutan here in the US. He was the first private enterprise to design an aircraft that made it to space and back. Twice in one day. If you can find the documentary called 'Black Sky' watch it. It is amazing. The courage of the test pilot Mike Melville is also something to see.

Very nice and informative. This might be of interest to aircraft buffs as well. A virtual tour of the AF Museum in Dayton, OH. Here, click away: National Museum of the U.S. Air Force - Virtual Tour
May we never forget those in uniform who protect us night and day in lands far away. And those in all wars who paid the supreme sacrifice in defense of our country. May God Bless our Troops and First Responders.
That is awesome, I spent many, many days growing up spending time at Wright Pat and the AF museum there, gawking at the planes. I've always liked aircraft, even more when they gave my chevro-legs a rest.

I built SN#1 of two planes for Cessna, and neither is on the site. A bit incomplete.

Gain a 2A vote, take a fence-sitter shooting.
If I could be given my choice of any other life to live, it would be to be the pilot of a Douglas A-1H Skyraider during either the Korean or Vietnam wars. It could carry a bigger bomb load than a WWII B-17 bomber, and had four awesome 20mm cannons with loads of ammo.
That aircraft was the ultimate prop plane fighter/bomber:
The engine powering that aircraft was amazing!

Now if I had a chance to fly a warplane during WWII, I would probably choose the closest thing to a Skyraider that existed back then, the British made Hawker Tempest. It also was powered by one heck of an engine, and was also armed with 4 20mm canons.

Great site. Could get lost for hours in it. Thanks for posting it.

I always wanted one of those sea/patrol planes. I think they would be awesome to fly. Kind of like an RV in the sky.
