    Friday Airplane Pics

    Know this is a boating forum, but with 3/4 of our great nation unthawing, thought this may help heat things up. Starting things off with the F-101B Voodoo.

    Great pics! I think we have amply demonstrated that most on this forum are interested in anything that burns gas. Besides that, most aircraft are just beautiful to look at.

    The Air Force has the coolest toys.

    Growing up and then working on military bases my entire life has given me the chance to see (and occasionally fly in) some pretty cool planes. Watching A-10's do live fire exercises on the ranges at Grafenwoehr, demo flight in an F-16 (C?) at an ANG base in Indiana, watching the demo pilot for the prototype F-16 practice his routine at Carswell (setting off all the car alarms in the process), C-130 rides from Ramstein to Macedonia (learned the meaning of "tactical approach").....lots of great memories. I'm a lucky guy for sure, considering I've never worn the uniform.

    I've seen (but never actually ridden) in B1's on multiple occasions, but my neatest Bone experience wasn't even on a military base. Driving out in the desert headed to Yuma once and saw one at VERY low altitude approaching from the left. Low enough it was actually kicking up dust on the ground. It crossed in front of me and was a half mile away before the sound hit....which was loud and violent enough to make me jump out of my seat, even though I knew it was coming. She's a beast, and in many ways one of the coolest toys in the toy box.

    Cool pics. Keep 'em coming.

    Witnessed this most amazing recovery by Matt Hall live from our boat anchored in the Detroit. He pulled this out of the drink about 300 yards off the bow. However once I got home and watched the replay, I gained a whole new respect for these guys.

    They're back....I watched the race from Abu Dhabi 'bout a month ago. Edge 540 seems to be the dominant aircraft in that sport.....that should make Oklahoma boys proud.

    Wow they are back.... Must have lost their old email list cause I haven't seen anything come in from RB in 3 years...
    Sucks that they scrapped Windsor, was a great venue, we attended every year. Vegas it is then.

    Here is the guy I want to spend some seat time with. Chuck Aaron , the biggest pair of balls in the group.. "I call my wife every day to tell her I'm still alive.." I've seen him perform twice, look up his videos for a true aerial thrill ride.

    I feel sorry for you young guys; watching Bob Hoover do his thing was absolutely amazing. The last time I saw him was in Reno in 1996.

    Bob Hoover was incredible! Here is a pic of one of my very good friends Billy Werth and his brother on motorcycle.


    This May I turn 40 and am planning on doing a Powerboat in the morning, 2 seat Indycar ride that afternoon, and followed by a flight with Billy after the Indycar ride. Land, Air, and Sea all covered in one day. Just working on the boat now, gotta be something fast!!!

    I was fortunate enough to Bob Hoover do his routine in his shrike commader, what a show! He did EVERYTHING I was trained NOT to do in a multi-engine airplane. He is the man, no doubt.

    LOL. And I just ordered a new 60' Skater with outboards. Both are pretty ridiculous statements. Of course, I would apologize and eat my words if you produce a pic.

    Friday Airplane Pics-100_0749.jpgFriday Airplane Pics-100_0751.jpgThis was my plane. It was my grandpas. I found it after some effort and restored it. This is the day I brought it home. I have since sold it after a near death experience. Yes it is a V-tail doctor killer, I am a doctor, and it almost killed me. I still loved it and loved to fly it. I've also learned that big power boating is not less expensive.

    This was no joke IFR with an instructor. I much prefer waves and seeing land.

    I do miss this. Breaking out above the clouds. It might be better than boating.
