If you like jets, it's a treat. David, I hope it doesn't take to long to load for you. :)


I would love to go there...
My favourite is he blackbird...the spy plane so fast,  that if  fired upon from the the ground, would simply follow it's standard evasive technique...accelerate away... 8) cool.

Thanks Bob :)

I like all aviation related stuff.

It is plodding away now, it will take some time, from the little that has been loaded I think it will be worth the wait ;D

Hard to say which would be my favourite, probably the A10 for its ground support and pure grunt, the SR71 is up there too; I remember when it flew over for the Farnborough Air show (I wasn't there though), it overshot and by the time it turned round it reached Paris ;D

It took about 40 minutes to load, some really nice shots though, I skipped the sound effect files ;D

Yeah, the A10 is pretty cool to...like you David, I find all of it interesting. I think it is because it seems as though
they are doing the impossible by flying...I know the physics behind it, but it still amazes me..:

The A10 "Warthog" is ugly as sin, but an awesome machine packing a lot of wallop.  It can withstand a lot of battle damage and still return to base safely.  A hard "bird" to kill!

I remember seeing an SR71 coming in for a landing when I lived on Okinawa.  Awesome!

Apple, Psystar reach partial settlement
So besides the lawyers, who really wins ???  ;D

Apple.http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/09/12/15/apple_wins_permanent_injunction_against_clone_mac_maker_psystar.html

I should leave this alone knowing how passionate .: Mac :. is on the subject, but I'm anticommunist in that I don't feel we should be told (or should I say ordered) what software or operating system we can have on our computers.

The injunction should be against Apple banning our freedom of choice.

Oooo A-10  :)  :)  :) I love them.

A bit slow making it vulnerable to AA, but if you're smart you daren't mess with it either way. I had the pleasure of watching one do a GAU run on some fake targets at our airshow a few years ago. No words can describe it lol.

Cheers!

For DavidR and the others in this thread that like jets you will like http://www.hulu.com/watch/24197/fighter-pilot-operation-red-flag  , but I believe this is only available in the USA.  Maybe you can "change your location", that is fool hulu somehow if not in USA. 8)  It might be on youtube ???
