Hard to take a selfie with a SLR.

    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent

Just got home from a day trip to the Strategic Air Command and Space Museum, was kind of special to me since i served in SAC during my time in the USAF, the one plane I want to see close is currently off exhibit while it is being restored, the EC-135. That plane is kind of special to me since I worked on both KC-135 and EC-135s while i was in the service.

 

Now for a couple of bounty planes.

 

A-26B Invader:

 

A Four-fer, F-86H, F-84F, A-26B (tail only) and if you look closely under the the B-36 wing you can see one of only 2 XF-85 Goblins built.

 

And of course a couple of the Gobling...

 

and just because I feel the need for speed....

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

I was planning on slapping even more pics but the forum wouldn't let me so I just went with these.

Wow I always assumed Sabre & Mig-15 were pretty much same size, kinda shocking to see the Mig is significantly smaller :amazed:


C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.
