Badass. But so high-maintenance and such severe operating conditions.

Planes like that boggle your sense of reality and physics when you see them hanging in the air at low speed like that. C5As are similar in the WTF department. But nothing beats the sound of four large radials like that. Jets got nothing on 'em. I'm mesmerized anytime a B-17 or B-24 makes the rounds for an air show.

Years ago, when stationed at Scott AFB in Illinois, a dependant wife living in base housing called into the Commander's Hotline to complain about C5s flying over base housing because it scared her and her kids (that it was going to fall out of the sky). We were all speechless for a minute. "You know you're living on an Air Force Base, right?"

I live near Buchanan Field, you can always tell the sound of those 17's and 24's, nothing else in the world sounds like them. Of all the things I would have liked to have been witness to, Krakatoa erupting, the New Madrid Event that made the Mississippi flow backwards, Anchorage Event, I would have loved to have seen and heard what a 1000 B-17's in the sky overhead was like.

Oh that and I would have like to have been there to see Pontius put the the Spear in.

Here's a quote from something I posted on FB that happened to me today, some people....

XXXXX So I'm at a new account today, Kas is alright I guess, he's not home but his 8 yr old daughter and the nanny is. Well the 8 yr old comes out and wants to help with planting a few plants, it's gonna slow me down but I figure what the hell, she's a kid, teachable moments. Kid has a blast, she's getting muddy, can barely lift the trencher shovel with clay stuck to it but she figures out how to stand on it anyways. I'm teaching her about roots and bees and soil, really smart girl. So we do this for about an hour, I send her in so I can blow this place. 15 minutes later Kas comes home and he asks me how she got so dirty and I tell him she wanted to help me plant the plants. He complains about her getting mud in the house. That's it.....Am I missing something here????? Out of the kindness of my heart I spent and hour with your daughter teaching her about the natural world and she had an absolute blast IN A FAIRY COSTUME I might add (minus the wings), I didn't have to do shit for anyone, and you just complain??? I ain't looking for no thank yous or nuthin but an acknowledgement would have been nice you twit. Your kid loved it! She absolutely loved every freakin minute of it! Whatever, some people man.

  • QQQQQQ Kids aren't necessarily the best decision makers. Who knows? Maybe the guy has white carpets or maybe the kid needed to be someplace or maybe it just made more work the guy didn't have time for?

    It's great that you took the time for the kid. I'm sure that's all she talked about for the rest of the day-kids are like that.

    But we have to remember when they're not ours a quick "let's see what XX says" helps avoid the butthurt later.

    Personally, I'd be happy you spent that time.

  • XXXXXXI talked to the nanny before I left, she was about my age, I told her next time I'll give her a heads up, we laughed about it. We both talked about our own kids getting into stuff and me dragging my kid onto jobsites, I think our impression was that this guy was being rather over-protective.

I remember the Martin Mars bomber from the '98 Mt Ida fire in Salmon Arm. Watched it swoop in low over the Fly Hills, power back and glide onto Shuswap Lake, powering back up, and after half a minute or so ever so gradually climb back up. It must have been half way to Revelstoke before it gained enough altitude to turn back to the fire. Very impressive sight and sound; made it easy to convince folks they should leave their homes in advance of the flames, when it flew a few hundred feet over the homes.

You're a good guy taking time with the kid.

As far as him being upset about the kid being dirty and bringing dirt in the house ... whatever .

I'd just shrug it off ... which it sounds like you already have.

I so want to get to Mildenhall, and/or Farnborogh. Another UK trip is due in the not too distant future, and timing it to hit Mildenhall would be superb. I've never been to a show there, but I have been to the RAF Hendon museum and the Bovington Tank Museum.

Chris I'm so glad you posting again. You need a tardis.

It's true, I've thought that about how terrifying it would have been to be a hausfrau in Dusseldorf in the 40s as the aluminum overcast appears on the horizon...again...

Fucking Nazis. Fuck 'em.

Daniel Bukvich had the same thought. I played this many years ago; not a happy piece. We did it with a projection system and some pyrotechnics behind the band. The Mighty Eighth rolls in around 5:55. This is a good performance, but youtube doesn't do it justice.

http://youtu.be/0WcPEc7LUrI

I wish I had a video of our performance. That's only time I've been allowed to sing while playing. It's hard to hear in that video, but the low brass is intentionally out of tune to recreate the engine drone. Singing while playing amps that effect up even more. I've always screwed around doing that and decided to try it for that section. The conductor liked it so all of us did it. The rest of the band whistled for the falling bombs, with people screaming and shouting before impact. We didn't rehearsed it with the effects, so I never got to see how it came together. We had footage of flak firing above us on the screens, buildings burning, with flashbangs going off. Incredibly cool to be in the middle of all that.

Our only mistake was ending with it. Lots of good, relatively happy music leading up to it, and it stunned the audience. The program notes gave some details of the attack, so there was no mistaking what was being portrayed. You can't really follow the firebombing of Dresden with Grainger.

On another concert, we played a piece about the bombing of Hiroshima, but it's more about the rebirth after the event. Not nearly as dark.

If you go to Mildenhall, Duxford is on the way and well worth the stop.

http://www.iwm.org.uk/visits/iwm-duxford

We caught Farnborough a couple times as well. Air Shows in the UK are the best! (IMHO)

I just checked online, I guess Mildenhall Air Fete was suspended after 9/11. We left there 21 Oct 2001. But rumblings (as of Feb 2012) are for it's return in 2014.

We broke out of the clouds today. Great day for the winter tire change over and Wet Okole installation.

I saw a little of Abu Dhabi this morning. Hamilton has to be pissed again.

I usually wait until the day before snow to change tires, but I'll be away for a few days. I need to get some miles on the new Michelins before it gets slick, too.

That would explain the bit of in-car video I saw. Did he have any earlier contact, or was it just a fatigue failure?

It would be a new part , and he had no contact with any other cars or the wall , just a failure
