    There were 2 of those assigned to RAF Mildenhall when I was stationed there. (88' to 90') Damn, I feel old all of a sudden.

    My dad was the PIC for the CSAR bird that went to go rescue the Ichi-Ban crew in the Luzon crash. Despite being a "friendly" nation that was some pretty wild "indian country" at the time

    I've been at Boeing Everett for 23 years, (minus a 5 year layoff) trust me you don't want to be on the tanker program.

    I spend all day on the KC-46, it's got a few neat things but I honestly miss working on the commercial planes more often than not. The 787 systems integration and technology was a lot of fun to test and troubleshoot. It had it's development issues but it really is a revolution in aircraft design, both from a structure and systems perspective.

    Edit:
    Haha, I wasn't going to be quite that blunt but yeah, pretty much.

    Here's an interesting article for the Boeing guys here.
    Do a Google search for "The Coming Boeing Bailout?" and read the first article on the list.
    Those of us that were hired before 97' will agree with it.

    I didn't hire in before the merger (part of that being I was 13 at the time) but I am second generation and agree that it is pretty much spot on.

    My dad was a structures design engineer and started back in the 70s. I still remember the sense of dread he had at the time of the merger and him going on strike for the first time. He actually got frustrated enough that he left the company for 10 years before coming back for a bit and retiring as early as he possibly could.

    If y'all want to see a museum, go to Dayton and visit the Air Force Museum. Holy crap, there are some amazing birds there. There is also an auxiliary hangar that most people don't visit that contains the first two or three Air Force One's and a crapload of old Lockheed Skunk Works birds including TACIT BLUE.

    Take extra memory cards, it's a picture-rich environment. And good walking shoes, because it's YUGE!!!

    I haven't gone yet but I would like to.
    The Museum of Flight at Boeing Field in Seattle is pretty good. They have an SR-71 (Sled) as well as a Concorde.
    They have a bunch of Apollo Program stuff for a limited time too.

    Anyone else geeking out over Apollo moon landing stuff this week? Been watching all kinds of movies this week - The Right Stuff and tonight its Apollo 13. Might have to break out my DVD's of From the Earth to the Moon.
    Also watched the Chasing the Moon documentary on PBS last weekend and it was pretty good. Lots of footage that I hadn't seen before and a few facts and details that I never knew before.

    I think it will be entertaining and hopefully have some good Hornet scenes but I was a little disappointed that it looks like they are pretty much ripping off at least a couple scenes from the original.

    That ending in the clip is awesome! Even though it was CGI, but seeing a F14 is absolutely beautiful!

    I know some scenes they use an actual F14 brought out from a museum but of course non is air worthy.
