Keeping Current from Team Bonhomme #55 Pit-News
It's been a busy few weeks since Windsor... Steve Jones and I have flown six displays as the Matadors in our Sukhoi 26's... great fun and it is most enjoyable to fly formation aerobatics. We flew at Siverstone on the F1 race weekend and then flew at the Biggin Hill Air Fair. Whilst we were there, we were awarded the prize for the best team display which is very satisfying given the standards of the ''competition''. I also flew the Mustang alongside Nigel Lamb in the Spitfire... again great fun. I was asked which I preferred, flying the Mustang or the Sukhoi? I enjoy both enormously so the answer has to be: the one I'm in at the time...

Diary of a skydiver - Die Republikein
TRADITIONALLY, skydiving is associated with roguish, adrenaline craving dare-devils with a zest for living on the edge. However, in recent years, the skydiving population has been increasingly infiltrated by women with a kick-butt attitude. And, occasionally, you will find a fourty-something mother of three who can't wait to make her 25-year-old dream a reality and start jumping out of perfectly good aeroplanes.
I did my first two jumps in 1984. At that time I was the young mother of a one-year-old and my responsibilities and circumstances did not allow me to keep skydiving. 25 Years later, with my youngest child almost a teenager, my wonderful husband knew exactly what would make me the happiest person in the world, and gave me a voucher for a static line course for my birthday. ...

Martin Space Art: 1 from The Unwanted Blog by admin
In the late 50's/early 60's, the major aerospace companies in the US cranked out volumes of speculative and sometimes jsut plain nutty artwork showing what our future in space was going to look like. The Martin Corporation was no exception. The Glenn L. Martin Aviation Museum has copies of a number of these pieces. It's not known if the designs shown were based on detailed engineering studies, very preliminary engineering studies, notional engineering ideas, or just the artists imagination. A whole lot of the latter can probably be safely assumed, however.
