Red River Swift Fly-in from Another Time by Dan Linn
Enjoyed a full Saturday of flying last weekend. Was able to take family for a short ride in the morning... another blog post on that later... and then flew down to Granbury, Texas in the afternoon for a local Swift Fly-In. I have been a fan of the Globe/Temco Swift for a good many years having worked on one as a job. My good friend Kelly talked me out of buying his nice, stock Swift to show me the 170 that I own. Happy with my choice of the 170 but I do admire the classic Swift. The Red River Swift Wing is an enthusiastic bunch. About fourteen of the slick birds came from around North Texas and even Arizona for the weekend of flying and fun. Locals held dinners and shuttled friends and fellow Swift owners around to the planned events. Thanks, Stan for the invite down... good to see you Janet and Alan! A few of my pictures are here. Stan wrote up a detailed report of the event here. Good times!

We have several images of her in the Delta Archives including this one: ... | Fly-girl Hilary Swank serves up earthbound 'Amelia' by Ric Peterson
In the new bio-pic "Amelia," Hilary Swank gives a solid turn as flying ace Amelia Earhart. Yet, even that can't ignite our engines and gas this guzzler off the ground.

Images from the USS Nimitz (CVN-68) by David Cenciotti
Between Oct. 19 and 20, I had the possibility to spend some 25 hours on board the USS Nimitz nuclear supercarrier. I went to Manama, Bahrain, and after a long flight in a C-2 of the VRC-40 "Providers" I trapped on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier that was sailing "somewhere" in the Indian Ocean. The purpose of my visit was to prepare a report that will be published in the next months on RID (Rivista Italiana Difesa). The following pictures are just a preview of all the images I took during my stay on the ship along with Giovanni Maduli. I will soon publish more images, reports, video and will answer some of the most frequent questions dealing with an aircraft carrier.
