    Raw Cockpit Footage Taken During A Blue Angels Air Show [VIDEO]

    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!

          I have an implanted spinal cord stimulator to help with back pain. They also have warnings about welding. I could not get one when I was working in an electric furnace steelmaking shop as the electrodes were over 1000 amps and volts. I have also decided to stay away from welding as I just do not...

          Shrink wrap systems
          by Linda In Phoenix
          What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...

          Brrrr. Glad you got to sell a little. I miss the people interaction. A lot. I hope you found some pretty pieces of wood at the store!
