Sitting in the orthopedic surgery waiting area at Ft. Belvoir (Dad broke his ankle) and the cover of Stars and Stripes looks interesting!
Best wishes from italy for your dad.
Thanks. He’s out of surgery. I told him the surgeon that put the plates in said they were engraved with Dallas Cowboy and NY Giants logos…haha… He shouldn’t have worn that Eagles hat into the hospital right @Aginor?
As my journey through my parent’s junk continues, I came across this, one of my favorite National Geographic magazines, September 1965 featuring an article on the USAF.
In that article, it had some of the first information on the F-111, so for @Bogusheadbox I thought I’d post it…a little something for him to peruse while waiting for the DCS version.
A cold night in Anchorage, getting ready to head West to the Far East
Hong Kong. I was only here for about 16 hours, so I didn’t get a chance to really see anything except the airport.
Tokyo. Again, just a short stay, so getting some rest was more important than sightseeing unfortunately. Maybe next time. This was the view from my hotel room.
Looking down from my hotel room, a N700 high speed train.
I’m no Global guy, but the symbol on the planes tail seems oddly familiar. Has it been threw Lincoln, Nebraska lately?
Um…you know the whole Mudspike Xmas Flight is over…great screen shots (what scenery package are you using?) but…just say’n.
You can just about do Hong Kong Disneyland in about half a day if you’re really bored. A cab is less than $20 and about 15 minutes each way.
Beautiful photos btw!
Yes indeed. We bring our airplanes up to Lincoln for major inspections etc.
Small world. Haven’t worked on any of them since I’m primarily a Falcon guy, but I’ve definitely walked past them in the hanger.
Small world indeed. You all do a great job up there, which is why we keep coming back.
The season to stay indoors, put on an HMD and be in sunny places and bomb the living snot out of them

EDIT: Reminds me the time my wife returned from a trip to Australia and a young cousin (about aged 7 at the time) asked why the pictures of the moon looks so different. It took a printed out a picture of the moon and a wobbly headstand to demonstrate the why.
(looks out side at falling snow… sighs…)
That’s an observant kid!
