This is the plane for the US Army Golden Knights.  

Yes, it is a Fokker 27...

Yes, I will let you use this one to take up slots at LHR.

FED EX dropped in an A300... 

Yes, real men use YOKES!!!!!

Sorry to my wife, but I wanted to use her as a scale reference for the massive engines on this thing.

Great Pics!
The trainer is a T-45 Goshawk. An american version of the BAe Hawk. It also lands in carriers!
I guess it's a good choice for LH flights with tech stops ;D

This is an Air Force 707 320C.  If you notice, it has CFM Engines!!!

This is a command and control aircraft that communicates with the nuclear subs of the US arsenal.

The pilot told me it was built in 1991 and does use the new engines.   I am still hoping Sami will let us re-engine these things one day.

The 2nd picture is a close up.  This is clearly not a JT3D.

Here are some treats for the crowd:


F18 and an F4 (not a rebuild, an original built at Goodyear in Akron)

Then the show stealers showed up. 

First off the ground was Fat Albert.

Yes, in the 3rd picture it was nose down at that angle and was coming in fast.

FED EX dropped in an A300... 

That's so funny, that's exactly what my dad flys and I was looking at my dad's open time (flights that other people drop that can be picked up for some extra hours) and saw a flight to KBKL, and I was like, it must be a glitch cause FedEx doesn't fly there. Now I know  ;D.
