I'm honored to be the first to chime in here.

Doc -

Can you feel the power flowing through you? OWK says: The Force is strong within this one.

I rated your article a solid 10, to say the least! I can tell you a few stories about Boeing's entry, the Pelican Girl, aka X-32A, but I won't! Not in public, anyway. Send me a PM and I'll tell you about it. If you give me your address, I'll send you a genuine Lockheed-Martin ball cap, dark blue with white lettering.

Thanks for keep us apprised of your efforts during the "dark days" which followed your forced change in direction when the X-32 was deselected. I for one, never lost confidence that you will suceed. Should you ever team up with Eddie Weeks, we will all be left behind in the EDF/Turbine dark ages!

Good things will come of your efforts on this project.

Congratulations, Doctor.

Cheers guys,

Any issues you would like to bring up? was it to technical/not technical enough?

I wanted to pitch it right and hope I got the feel for where I'm coming from OK.

For the record, I'm firing up the two rear fans tonight for initial testing and will have all three gunning in a few days.

Doc

P.S. I snuk in and gave it a 10
