Jets and Sunsets


Nothing special, just some sunset plane pr0n for you today.  
















And the gratuitous Chamber of Commerce picture of Mission Bay


One of these jets is not like the others, one of these jets just doesn't belong.  I'm sure you'll let me know which one.

Not really making up for lost time here at The Chant, but it's nice to give Sarge a break.  By the way, Pinterest is my friend- for every one of these.  Hope you like them.-  Tuna

  1. Great pics!

    Sarge does indeed appreciate the break.

    ;)

  2. The F-22 dropping a bomb? That's just so wrong!
    Palm trees and Migs also seemed out of place.

    1. Deleted because of egregious typo. Now fixed.

      The photo of the flight deck crew standing at the catapult and wreathed in the steam. Just awesome. And it is hard to believe that we are still using the vapor from boiling water to fling these planes off the flight deck.

      Some time in the future. And the scene is set in the Old Sailor's Home. "You kids and your crazy Electro Magnet catapults! Why in the old days....."

      Well done on all the photos.

      Is that a Concorde or a Tupolev?

    2. Concorde. Tu-144 has a very different wing shape and fatter, more closely spaced engine nacelles. Also really fugly canards that come out for low speed.

    4. John, that one is my favorite of the bunch. Search for the title and you'll see more posts like this, one of which has the best carrier sunset picture ever.

  4. How do we know that someone didn't get up really early and take sunrise pictures?

  5. Thanks for the porn, Tuna. Made a great start to my day.

    1. Paul, it's pr0n, not the other one.

      Though that one might increase the hit count...

      It works if I use "hamster" in the post title too. For very strange reasons.

    2. Please explain " prOn ".

    3. "Pr0n" is ancient Internet slang, people came up with soundalike/lookalike non-words to evade early spam filters. I'm not sure it ever WORKED, but that's where it came from.

      If you ever did a photo posting of experimental aircraft, would you title it XPlaneHamster?

      (And now we're gonna forget that joke, and pretend to not get it)

    4. Hahaha.

      a bear is correct. (At the beginning of a sentence would that be "A bear"?)

    5. Thank you for the explanation. I have so much to learn and so little time left in which to do it.

  6. Happy to oblige. Skip- I have posted a few of my early morning pics before, just not today.

  8. Really like the Phturkish Phantoms.

  9. Is everyone getting hit with " Your papers, please. ", or is it just me?

    1. It's not supposed to do that, I have validation turned off. Stupid Google.

  10. Your gestapo bot said to check " CARS ", so I didn't check the picture of the pick-up or van. Finally it showed only cars, so I was allowed to pass " go ". Yes, I am a literalist.

    1. When I'm walking with my parents, the person in the rear calls "car back" so we know to scoot over (narrow roads around their place). I usually end up muttering "... it's a truck" under my breath.

Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
