Top Secret Program Director visits Fantasy of Flight! from Kermit's Blog by Kermit
I had the pleasure to show Skip Atwater and his wife Fay around Fantasy of Flight recently. Skip was the head of the Top Secret Remote Viewing called Star Gate. It was a Black Project he ran from 1977 through 1988 and was a psychic espionage program run by the US government to counteract the program the Russians had. Remote Viewing was used as part of our intelligence gathering efforts and became a useful tool once they understood how it worked and developed it.

Kenya by Patty Wagstaff
I arrived back from Kenya with a stomach ache and slept for 36 hours, but am feeling much better and have even almost unpacked and gotten organized. You've got to love the feeling of being organized, if only to get it together for the next journey down the road. The training sesssion with the KWS pilots was the best ever, thanks in part to the support of the Lindbergh Foundation. Rich Sugden and I worked with ten pilots from Monday to Friday with three airplanes - a Husky, a Super Cub and a Decathalon. Rich focused on flying with the Husky pilots and transitioned one Cub pilot to the Husky, with a solo flight. I focused on the Cub and transitioned two Deathatlon pilots to the Cub. And, most pilots were able to fly with me in the Decathalon at least once during the week. The airplanes stayed in good shape all week and we only had minor mechanical problems so that, combined with the enthusiasm of the pilots, made it the best training week ever.

If Its Not Boeing I'm Not Going from All Things Aviation by JetAviator7
One of my favorite sweatshirts has "If Its Not Boeing I'm Not Going" on it It is quite worn and I really need to replace it, but I just LOVE that sweatshirt! Now I have never flown a Boeing, nor an Airbus, although I nearly got my type rating in the DC-8 and did fly the DC-8 some. I have a fair bit of time in a DC-3 which is my all time favorite aircraft to fly.

Machines. from PPRuNe Forums by Batchy
After several months of inactivity I felt it was time to get the Jag out of the garage and blow the cobwebs away with a quick blast round the M25 to Brooklands. As part of its 'Something in The Air' programme the museum was holding a small event that would feature some engine runs by the Camel, Drone and Demoiselle. The Napier Railton was also featured in the programme but unfortunately i left before hearing the beast fire up. Here are a few shots from the day. Falke.

Manufacturing a Wooden War Plane... in 1944 from Pilots of America Message Board by KennyFlys
This is an incredible video. It's about the manufacturing of the de Havilland Mosquito during World War II. A Marine buddy sent the video so I looked into it further. From
Wikipedia... Quote: The Mosquito was known affectionately as the "Mossie" to its crews and was also known as "The Wooden Wonder" or "The Timber Terror" as the bulk of the aircraft was made of laminated plywood.
I did a search and there doesn't appear to be any on the FAA registry. There has to be a few flying around the world somewhere. All I found was one being restored in
