    1. It is kind of busy, though I like busy. The rotating thing is cool. I wonder how they do that?

  2. Ya know it's not the package that matters so much as what's in the package.

    That is unless you're only a one year old.

    1. Yes, Ma'am. That is an F-4D, tail number 66 7463/ An aircraft I actually worked on back in the day. On Okinawa and in Korea. She was a much fabled bird, those six red stars on the intake were from Vietnam. She now sits in front of the Air Force Academy on static display. A fact I did not know until a few months ago. Made the Old AF Sarge happy that she didn't end life as a drone or sitting out in the boneyard.

      Thanks for noticing SKK!

      Didja know a bunch of Boat School exchange students painted that Phantom in Blue Angels colors... completely, and a good job of it, too... as a prank before the Air Force Navy game a few years back? Lex did a post on it with some pics I gave him, which were forwarded to me by some forgotten source. One of the best pranks, EVAH, and the Middies used water-based paint, so it cleaned right up.

    3. Yup, saw that. Doggone Middies, did they win that game or did we?

    4. I don't recall the outcome o' the game. But the prank made a BIG impression!

    5. Old AFS, how could I NOT notice a Phantom?? And what a cool story! I, too, am glad she is not in some boneyard somewhere.
