Knowing what you know, what would you do had you the choice?

For the non-facebook members, I’ve re-posted some photographs I put on for the `Facebook Group` from when I visited Duxford last week. I’m no photographer and only have a basic digital camera and some of these had to be snapped on my `mobile` phone as batteries conked out, but I hope it gives you a little insight into some of the things going on at Duxford.
It would have been more fitting to have got these up for your Memorial Weekend, but I was out doing my own remembrances at the Thorpe Abbotts 100th Bombardment Group museum. Will put up a couple of videos from that in due course. Hope you enjoy these.
From our good friend and fellow Lexican, Bill “Pinch” Paisley.
Good old “Pinch” Paisley had this at his Facebook today. I am also one of those getting the furlough letter as I work for the Air Force at Eddie’s Airplane Patch. Sucks. But Bill has this short but most eloquent post…………..Shipmate, Friend, Blog Bud and Lexican.
Furlough letter today. Yay. Makes me feel better when I’m losing 11 days of work and Major Nidal Hasan is getting his full pay. Or when the White House has parties for Justin and Beyonce. Or millions of dollars are spent on a study of Chinese prostitutes to try and make it more difficult for American businessmen to become HIV Positive while on a trip to Hong Kong. Ain’t that America.
2 weeks ago I posted about the Dambusters 70th Anniversary commemorations broadcast live on the BBC which I thought was very well produced and staged by the RAF and BBC .
I’ve just found these recently posted extracts on You Tube. One is of the aforementioned BBC broadcast and the other is amateur footage taken of events during that day. Some quite good shots, which may be of interest to our bloggers.
Welcome to The Mojave Desert in The Spring Time.
The Wind doesn’t blow at Edwards. Barstow sucks……………………………..
These things at times are never ending around here. It has actually picked up since sun up. The line will be interesting to say the least.
