PT1, The Last Ace-Mark Bowden-Atlantic Monthly from Military Photos - General Discussion by KB
Cesar Rodriguez, who retired with more air-to-air kills—three—than any active-duty Air Force pilot, stands beside an F-15. The Doorstep of Oblivion - Over Cesar Rodriguez’s desk hangs a macabre souvenir of his decades as a fighter pilot. It is a large framed picture, a panoramic cockpit view of open sky and desert. A small F‑15 Eagle is visible in the distance, but larger and more immediate, filling the center of the shot, staring right at the viewer, is an incoming missile. It is a startling picture, memorializing a moment of air-to-air combat from January 19, 1991, over Iraq. Air-to-air combat has become exceedingly rare. Even when it happens, modern fighter pilots are rarely close enough to actually see the person they are shooting at. This image recalls a kill registered by Rodriguez, who goes by Rico, and his wingman, Craig Underhill, known as Mole, during the Gulf War. The F‑15 in the distance is Rodriguez’s. “The guy who is actually sitting in the cockpit staring out at this, he’s locked on to me with his radar, and that,” he said, pointing at the missile, “is about to hit him in the face.” “So this is an artist’s rendering?” “No,” said Rodriguez. “That’s actually the real picture.” …

Dick Rutan First-Flights New Berkut from Mojave Skies by Alan Radecki
Veteran test pilot and world aviation record holder Dick Rutan has a new ride, with yesterday's first flight of his new Berkut homebuilt. The Berkut is a descendant of the Rutan (as in Brother Burt) Long-EZ, with the prototype being designed in 1989 by Dave Ronneberg and Kerry Beresford of the company Experimental Aviation.

Aviation History - Chapter 2.5 - Lockheed C-5 Landing Gear - I’ve been doing research for the next post on air refueling, which should be up in a couple of days. In the process I found these two videos which show the operation of the Lockheed C-5 landing gear. I tried to describe the operation in words in my last post covering some of the unique features of the C-5 but I don’t think the words described the contortions very well. This is another instance where a picture (video) provides a much clearer description. The first video is actually an...
