So much fabulous detail!

Do you have any more cockpit pictures and can you read the text on the side of the “cabin”?

Eisenhower fired and humiliated a Chinese aerospace engineer!

So he went to China. Eventually tgecChinese Communist party Accepted him and put him to work. This led to advanced missiles, fighters and bombers!

We have to protect, treasure and honor scientists as what they imagine dominates!

The F-16 is an amazingly successful and versatile air frame. The story of its development has the backbone of fearless competition and brilliant feedback, focus and direction. It’s in use by so many air forces around the world is testimony to its success.

Israel has the largest fleet of F-16 outside the USA with droppable external conformal fuel tanks that increase range and operational capability without compromising agility or speed and freeing up major space for more weaponry and battle aware electronics.

The F-16, in spite of the F-35 stealth and more advanced electronics is still the backbone of air superiority postures by most Western Nations!

I would love to see a most massive Air Force fly-by after the Biden inauguration to remind the world that we are back in business!

The planes are great ambassadors.

No masks needed and social distancing is part of the deal!

Thanks, Tim. Yea, it was nice seeing an airshow this year. The drive- in format was kinda cool having your stuff in truck and being able to stand up in back of it.
