RE: Now This Is Cool!

In Tegucigalpa in Central America they actually have to stop traffic for approaches to one side of the airport. In one airport in FL (don't know if it has any commercial flights) there's actually a printed warning for alligators on the runway. If anyone knows of any other things like this, please te...

Sometimes it looks a lot like that from the air, which I'll tell you scares the hell out of me sometimes. During flying lessons I'm afraid I'll overshoot!

RE: KC135 Replacement...

Boeing has been pushing the 767 for a lot of different things for a long time. Japan has I think 4 of them as an AWACS platform, and Italy just signed on for some of the cargo/tanker models. The USAF I think is sort of toying with the idea, but I don't know if it will ever actually come through. It'...

Does anyone know how long approx. it would take to resurrect one of the aircraft in storage at Davis-Mothan? Do they actually do any good there or does the government just put planes there for lack of better things to do? How long does a plane sit in there until it gets destroyed, anyway? (not count...

RE: F-16 Squadron/Baseing Questions

If you want a complete list, it'd take forever. Including ANG and Reserve, there are a ton of F-16s that are based in the states. Comparitively, I don't think there are very many American F-16s based outside.

In fact, there are several L-39s in the United States, and I have the happy coincidence of being related to the owner of one of them, and was therefore able to go for a flight. It's a very different flight from an airliner or private plane. Taking off, you go VERY fast in a very small plane, and whe...
