Can you believe all that God has created for our wonderment? Wouldn't have the opportunity to see all of these creatures if not for pictures like these. Be amazed!!

Only about 4-minutes long, but takes a while to load.

Go "full screen" and turn-up the volume! The photography is HD, the planes are gorgeous, and, most notably, it is shot as the B17 takes off from Falcon Field in Mesa, AZ and then flies over the Superstition Mountains.

To the East of Apache Junction, then to Roosevelt & Canyon lakes, on the east edge of the Phoenix valley. The backdrops are stunning. Music is from the mini series John Adams.

Stryker 6x4 prop...I have also used the APC 6x4 e prop..The Stryker prop puts out more thrust though.I learned this early on..We used to build a lot of the F22 profile jets and powered them with the Stryker setup..I found out that the jets had quite a bit more vertical thrust with the stryker prop over the APC..

Wonder how a high school senior would do on this one.
See how you do in placing the states of the United States of America.

All you do is look at the top of the page and drag 'n' drop the state where it belongs. [Smart map, varies the order of the states' placement with each new try!]

It isn't easy (mostly because placing a state in the precise location when it as yet has no boundaries in place is a bit tricky)

No credit for being close.

Boeing's Phantom Eye

Boeing unveiled its hydrogen-powered Phantom Eye unmanned airborne system during a ceremony in St. Louis on July 12. The aircraft, which will stay aloft at 65,000 feet for up to four days, is powered by two, 2-liter, four-cylinder engines that provide 150 horsepower each. It has a 150-foot wingspan, will cruise at approximately 150 knots and can carry up to a 450-pound payload.

The two engines are Ford truck engines which have been modified to run on hyrodgen gas. The only emmission from hydrogen engines is water. The research and development for such engines has been conducted at the Savannah River Site at Aiken, SC.
