WARNING FROM HEALTH CANADA! from Windsor International Air Show by Century of Flight
It begins with an itch you can't scratch. From there it progresses to a dull ache that just doesn't seem to subside, even with the aspirin. Next there is a feeling of euphoria mixed in with a small bit of anxiety and then it mixes with a little bit of adrenaline.
The physical symptoms reflect a chronic “readiness” to deal with some future threat. These symptoms may include fidgeting, muscle tension, and sleeping problems. Higher levels may produce such symptoms as rapid heartbeat, sweating, increased blood pressure, nausea, and dizziness. Sometimes it just doesn't matter where you go, you just have to. ...

Rand Airshow from Technorati
Yesterday’s Rand Airshow took place in rather cool and windy Johannesburg weather, but flying conditions couldn’t have been more perfect: not a cloud in the sky meant that spectators, and there were a lot of them, got to see some interesting aircraft. The ZAR 50 entrance fee for the day was a bargain given the programme lineup. I arrived at the Rand Airport at just after ten and by then a 2km line of cars was waiting to get into the parking areas. Even though there was a record turnout, tick ...

WW2 56th Fighter Group pictures from Military Photos by DJ2
I have been working on digitizing and scanning 16mm film and photos from the 56th Fighter Group in WW2.
My Dad was a pilot in the 61st squadron, and volunteered to work in the photo lab, where he made authorized copies of pictures that interested him (photos have a release on the back). Most are copies, some he took himself.
They are all posted in photobucket, album name is 'djforall'

Movie Monday - May 18 - Dogfights of Desert Storm - FlightBlogger
Well, it had occurred to me that over the last several weeks with all my on-the-road reporting, I had forgotten some of the old standbys on this page like Movie Monday.

Produced by the same people who brought us Dogfights of the Tuskegee Airmen, this History Channel program takes you inside the cockpit of the F-15C during the 1991 Gulf War and Operation Desert Storm.

Flying the Pilotmaker: A Ride in the USAF T-6A Texan II from Let's Go Flying by Steve Tupper
For many of us, the initial thrill of aviation came from military aviation as it was portrayed in the movies and on television. Many of us who followed that call to the airport and went up on our first few flights were practally overcome with newfound respect for military aviatiors. In and among the noise and excitement, we rapidly became aware that aircraft don't fly knife-edge or move fluidly through all three axes all by themselves. They require seriously skilled pilots who dedicate years of their lives to high-intensity training of a kind that most of us can only imagine. ...

Doubletake - Airpigz Blog by Martt Clupper

General Aviation Day at Paine Field from www.aafo.com
Took a trip to Paine Field in Everett Wa on Saturday. It was going to be the first of the summer 'Maintainence Flights' from the planes at the Flying Heritage Collection. I heard a P-51D and a P-47D would be flying.
I didn't realize it was also a community Air Fair. It was a fun afternoon! As a bonus, there were two additional P-51's that flew with the FHC planes. There was another D model, and a real treat; the B model with the Malcom hood, that was in the Rolls Royce competition at Reno last year, 'Impatient Virgin?'. Here are a few shots ...
