    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

    Thanks so much for sharing the video with us Chuck. I have also seen the Blue Angles many times...but not from that angle.

      Pretty Typical

      Just standard formation flying - we do it every day in the Air Force. It's part of pilot training (OK, not the loop with gear and tailhook hanging, but that's just to show off). And flying upside down for extended periods is no fun whatsoever. What makes these guys good is finding a runway that's floating somewhere out in the middle of the ocean and landing on it when it's moving up and down plus-or-minus 40 feet!!!! Take a look at their landing gear sometime on a static display. Then compare it to an Air Force landing gear. The difference is when we land, we "kiss" the runway. The Navy performs a controlled crash - and then hopes they don't bounce before the tailhook catches.

        I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

          Just curious about the 13' extension. Building material, especially sheet goods are in 4' increments. Why 13'?...

          Hi folks - I really feel sorry for you people north of the border.

          Here in Central Mexico, apart from a couple of days at the end of January where we had a couple of showers in the evenings we have seen hardly any clouds in the sky during the day since the New Year and although we 've...

          Wow! - this a stunning piece!

          In particular the head is so lifelike it feels like if you got too close to this bird he (or she) would reach out and nip you with its beak....

          Hi all -
