Happy Hour

"IF A LIFETIME CAN BE LIKENED TO A DAY, THEN THIS IS HAPPY HOUR!"
BUCK PENNINGTON

Mother, Mother Ocean

Mother, Mother Ocean, I've heard you call
Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
You've seen it all, you've seen it all
Watched the men who rode you, switch from sails to steam
In your belly you hold the treasures, few have ever seen
Most of 'em dream, most of 'em dream
Yes, I am a pirate, two hundred year's too late
The cannons don't thunder, there's nothin' to plunder
I'm an over-forty victim of fate
Arriving too late, arriving too late

"Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is."

Counted the Stars

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
I have these pictures and I keep these photographs
To remind me of a time
These pictures and these photographs
Let me know I'm doin' fine
We used to be so happy once upon a time
Once upon a time
But the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line
And the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line

More Gratuitous Plane Pr0n: Portuguese AF

These are from 301 Squadron, Jaguares.


We have a Portuguese Test Pilot here from this very squadron. These are of the Tiger Meet Jet from this past May.
Up close of the tail. 

Taking to the Sky!
I may not be a really big fan of the F-16 from my own biased seagoing point of view. It pays the bills.
But I do like the NATO Tiger Jets. And there will be the Czech AF Gripens at a future date.

Nice. We could use some spiffy paint on OUR Lawn Darts.

All the AF has is the Thunderbirds. There are still white with orange F-16s here at Edwards.
The Danish AF has a pretty neat F-16BM here as part of the JSF program.
At least the Navy has it's CAG birds with the colors on the airplane.

I think they should do something here with the Squadron and Wing Flagships at least.

I will not go down and tell my children I didn't have the courage, the conviction, the commitment or the character to fight for this country...Don't go home and let your children down~~ LTC Allen West
