Aviation Nation 2008 - Las Vegas - Nellis AFB Air Show - With their training flights our hometown Nellis men and women in-blue put on an 'airshow' for Las Vegas locals nearly every day of the year. In addition to that, several times a year you'll see military aircraft from around the world in town to participate in aerial combat training called Red Flag, held in the Nellis Range to the north of the valley. It's not even unusual to see the occasional military aircraft coming into McCarran to 'shoot approaches' (a term from my DH and son's pilot-speak)

This Week In Military/Aviation History 20 - 26 October from Warbirds Online by Tom Kwiatkowski Sr.
Hello Folks, betcha thought I’d forget again didn’t ya. Well I didn’t. Of course the strip of paper across the top of my monitor that says ” Don’t forget Sunday Night post Air Head” helped. Ok, it doesn’t say Air Head, the two words there have the same number of letters and the same starting letters, but from there differ a bit. Have you noticed the words “can’t afford” are popping up in political ads a lot more? “We can’t afford to send another liberal trial judge in Congress” and the such. Believe me Folks, with all the perks these Folks vote themselves, they’re the only ones who can afford to send anyone anywhere. And then there’s “Joe the Plumber” whose name isn’t Joe, doesn’t have a plumber’s license, is $1,200 behind in his taxes, (Hey, close enough for government work, right?) but is a REAL person! I’m so glad to see Mr. McCain isn’t coming up with imaginary playmates. And the “We” stuff. “We” don’t want his/her type of possible legislation after the election. What’s this “We” stuff, got a frog in your pocket? YOU don’t want this person elected so that YOU can be elected instead, and YOU are hoping WE go along with you. One of our local candidates has the entire national committee bashing him. According to them, it seems the company he owned moved some jobs to China, the mention of this being done was - spelled he - removed from his campaign website. Then, according to the ad, he sold his company to another company which had sent military secrets to China, admitted the crime, and paid a $100 million penalty. The Federal prosecutors said this put our troops in danger. This is so wrong on so many levels. His opponent doesn’t need to say anything except good about himself. They’re doing all the dirty work. Nice position, eh? Well, while I’m calming myself down, let’s get down to some serious history, shall we? Have an AB FAN (ABsolutely FANtastic) week, Take Care and Be Safe, Tom K.;)

What the Presidential Candidates Fly: Obama’s Aircraft vs. McCain’s. from An Aviator's Blog. by Jonathan Heckman
With the U.S. Presidential election nearing, I thought it would be interesting to research the types of aircraft each presidential candidate flies. As it turns out, John McCain flies a 737-400 and Barack Obama flies a 757-200. Each plane is painted in the candidate’s presidential livery. After comparing the liveries, I believe I like Barack Obama’s better. McCain’s plane seems like it just hasn’t got the right paint job to it. Perhaps he should’ve gone with a darker blue. Here are the pictures:
