RE: Obama Confirmed The Death Of Osama Bin Laden Pt.3

Heard this one yesterday (warning: not for Namby Pambys):

So, a guy enters the bar
The bartender looks up and says, "What'll you have?"
The guy says "I'll have a Bin Laden!"
The bartender says, "What's that?"
The guy says, "That's 2 shots and a splash of water!"

I for one wish they would have carted OBL's body away and made it quietly disappear and not said a word about it. A quiet fade to obscurity and irrelevance is exactly what fanatical martyr types fear the most.

Obama confirmed the death of Osama Bin Laden Pt.1

I wonder who carried out the operation (Delta, DEVGRU/SEAL Team 6, Rangers)? Maybe a joint op with SAS?

Hopefully some details will trickle out.

DC-10-40 Oxygen Mask Test

I never knew there were DC-10's with the "vertical-tape" engine instruments. I'm used to seeing those on the L-1011, not the DC-10.

Great classic footage.

RE: AZ 747-100 Pic; Engine Failure?

It could also have been a three-engine ferry flight, rather than an engine failure. If it's not an engine failure or a three-engine ferry, then the rudder might be explained by the aircraft beginning its roll-out to the right. However, like you say it's rather strong right-rudder, and right-rudder f...
