SFR of Yugoslavia F-86e Sabre from Military Photos by cinoeye
One of many paradoxes of the post WWII Yugoslavia was being the only eastern European country that called itself communist, but wasn't the part of Warsaw pact, and furthermore it was receiving western military support. Yugoslavia was called "east for the west, and west for the east". On reflection, those grounds had the same role throughout history. Being on the crossroads did not bring much luck to its people.
As such, the Yugoslav Air Force in fifties, and sixties managed to paint red stars on some very advanced flying machines from the American inventory of the day. The last in the line of western fighter jets sent to Yugoslavia was F-86D, Sabre Dog. It remained in Yugoslav service until the 1970s, and for a while it flew together with MiG-21. This was a unique occurrence in the world. ...

NASA Offering Free Zero Gravity Flights from Slashdot by ScuttleMonkey
An anonymous reader writes to tell us that NASA is offering free zero-g flight time for anyone with a viable proposal for emerging space technologies. While NASA will provide the flight time, approved projects will be responsible for all other expenses. "NASA's Facilitated Access to the Space Environment for Technology Development and Training, or FAST, program helps emerging technologies mature through testing in a reduced gravity environment. To prepare technologies for space applications, it is important to demonstrate they work in a zero-gravity environment. This unique testing environment can be provided in an aircraft flying repeated parabolic trajectories which create brief periods of zero gravity. The aircraft also can simulate reduced-gravity levels similar to those found on the surface of the moon or Mars."
