B-52 crash inspires romantic drama By Steven Zeitchik NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter)
Miramax has signed on for "Muchas Gracias, Bob Oppenheimer," a period romantic drama inspired by the potentially catastrophic crash of an American B-52 bomber in 1966. The film centers on an American serviceman in the 1960s who is sent on an appeasement mission to a fishing town in Spain after a U.S. military plane crash results in the accidental detonation of four hydrogen bombs; in addition to his role with the locals, the serviceman also embarks on a relationship. The project draws from the true story of Palomares, Spain, where in 1966 a B-52 crashed and released more than 1,000 pounds of nuclear material. Television series creator Bob Dolan Smith ("Grace Under Fire") wrote the first draft of the screenplay, with a new draft now being written by Daniel Taplitz, who is also working on the intergenerational drama "Man on a Train" for Miramax.

Art Nalls : Sea Harrier flew again this weekend from Alert 5 - Military Aviation News by noreply@blogger.com (pirate)
Art Nalls is back flying his Sea Harrier, report after the jump. We worked on the minor discrepencies on Saturday and set up for a flight on Sunday, after the local church services were over. We're trying to be good neighbors with such a loud machine. On schedule, we rolled her out, cleaned the canopy, and I strapped in. The takeoff was perfect, using only partial power and then the moment of truth - - - I cycled the landing gear. (insert spine-tingling music here) You might not think that such an operation would generate so much stress and anxiety, but it did. Our last troubles were all because of this simple operation, or lack of it. Four up and locked, four down and locked, four up and locked and I headed for the aerobatic working area. I performed a few, basic aerobatic maneuvers as required by our operating limitations. All were complete and without any adverse qualities. A very impressive machine. I returned to the airfield for a 78-knot landing, exercising the nozzle speed trim - also an impressive device. I turned off mid-field easily. The type-rating check ride is scheduled for next weekend. Art Nalls
