Very Nice Retract Setup

Herb,

I really admire the impeccable work that you do with your jets. Also I just figured out that you must be working at the LHC, am I correct? Now, I really admire and envy that!

Regards, Bill

It is interesting to see how slow the actual (full-size) F-16 will fly at an airshow

Most of the time we (including mystelf) tend to think that a jet at an airshow will fly Mach 1 ... that is not necessarily the case as the video below clearly shows.
