Case of the Blues   2 comments

After wondering what blue ink I had loaded in my pen yesterday, I created a chart of the blue (and blue-adjacent) inks I have.

2011 Dayton Air Show   Leave a comment

We spent the afternoon at the 2011 Dayton Air Show (also known as the “United States Air and Trade Show”), in spite of the heat and humidity.

They had many cool aircraft on static display. This T-45 seemed to capture the mascot of my alma mater.

NASA had two interesting airplanes. One was an F-18, used as a chase plane.

Even more interesting was the “Super Guppy.” This cargo plane is used to move rocket parts.

I always like walking through the C-5.

In the air, a B-2 flew overhead.

The B-1B demonstrated it’s ability to swing its wings backward.

An F-18F Super Hornet gave an impressive Demonstration.

The F-18 also got to participate in a “Legacy Flight” with a World War Two era F4U Corsair.

16.33 Miles: Loveland   Leave a comment

*NOT* via the trail, but honest-to-God climbing.

Actually, they scraped up the surface of Loveland-Maderia road, so my cyclecomputer kept vibrating off. Probably more like 18 miles or so.
