Yep, I should be good shooting north from imperial highway (hill). Speaking of Imperial Hill, can anyone pinpoint it for me? What is Proud Bird? From Imperial Highway (the major road that marks the south boundary of the airport, and feeds into Interstate 105,) either turn left on California St. (if...Jump to post
Two F-117s landed at FAT today. The aircraft will be the aggressors for training exercises with the 144th Fighter Wing's F-15C/D Eagles.

As for this General he should lose his job, not sure if he should face charges but he jumped the gun big time.

The Imperial Hill park (with the flagpole) is fully understood to be a photography hot spot, so you shouldn't be hassled by the police. There have once in a while been reports of people getting their gear stolen there, though, so try to keep all your stuff where you can see it. The one problem I can...Jump to post
As a supporter of putting floats on as many different types of airplane as possible, I endorse this proposal. Hope to see one at the Greenville Seaplane Fly-In circa 2050.Jump to post
Republicans overplayed their hand. Yes, Newsom's pandemic response left lots of people unhappy, and the whole French Laundry affair is one of the dumbest things I've seen a politician do in recent memory, but to win this, they needed to keep the Democratic majority relatively uninterested. Putting a...Jump to post
That's a real gut punch... This is how I feel tonight: California, you're nothing to me now. You're not a fellow, you're not a friend. I don't want to know you or what you do. No, you don't get to say that. We're Americans too, our votes count just as much as yours, we pay American taxes, go to Ame...Jump to post

California and Texas really aren't that different, when you get right down to it. Large populations, diversified economies that eclipse many independent nations in their own right, some of the U.S.' largest cities. There's a lot of issues facing both states that are strikingly similar - growing cost...Jump to post

The other thing that strikes me is that for all the loftiness of the goal of ending terrorism, the legacy of the post-9/11 world may well be profound cynicism. It feels like nothing anyone has done since has lived up to its own justifications, when they're even offered. The Bush administration promi...Jump to post
In hindsight, I think there was something fundamentally absurd about the War on Terrorism, as a concept. I mean, no matter how it goes, Terrorism is never going to sign a surrender on the deck of the U.S.S. Missouri. It's hard to imagine any universe where an event as horrific as 9/11 goes without a...Jump to post
So wait, how many 777 freighter conversion programs does that make now? Is it like the old joke about London buses where you wait ages and then three show up at once?Jump to post
I think it is disingenuous to say the right wants to control a women's right to control their body. The vast majority (not the fringe minority) consider the fetus to be a life, so its not about the women's right to choose, rather protecting an unborn life. You must look at the actually views and ar...Jump to post
I think this is fair. I can deal with an R who will not court religious extremists or stand in the way of any of the social advances we have made. I would be ok with the Governator again. That's kinda the rub though. The Republicans aren't, and we can't expect them to nominate guys like that anymore.Jump to post
The countries with the easiest access to abortion have the lowest abortion rates. (and good sex education and access to contraception) Just sayin'.....

One thing I found puzzling was that in one of the photos of Kabul airport published in the New York Times, there was a CH-46 Sea Knight helicopter visible.

As sad as it is, I think you are right. In civilian duty of course, as the USAF KC10 fleet will be around for many years. Not necessarily.

The whole thing where one entity owns multiple teams, or at least strongly influences more than one teams, yet these teams are all in the same competition, is also something of an oddity to a newcomer.

The door configuration is interesting. I thought I read somewhere here on a.net that new aircraft designs need to have exits at the front and rear of the aircraft. Is that not the case?

Sometimes FR24 will offer its "best guess" for a flight's origin or destination when it doesn't have access to the information. These guesses... aren't always completely accurate. One time it told me a Qantas A380 had just landed at Hawthorne, California (runway 1489 x 30 meters.)Jump to post

There are some military training routes in that area, I think. Some of them might be low-level; I remember seeing a C-17 apropos of absolutely nothing while driving on a two-lane highway in the western Maine woods. No idea how high it was, but lower than a typical cruise altitude.Jump to post
