  1. This was a interesting post with some interesting pictures, can you tell us how they choose the airplanes they are going to retire? I was so upset when they decided to retire the B1 Bomber for the B2, to me it made no sense at all because the B1 could still carry more bombs and perform better, not to mention the shear fear it instealed in people with its sound.

  2. You had a very interesting video there and I love planes, I have lived in Wichita, KS. All my life most of the time real close to the air base so that I could watch or listen to the planes taking off and doing touch and go’s so this was a great blog for me. Do you know if this plane will be in the next air show we have in Wichita?

  3. I got to say, this Short Little, Ugly jet packs a wallop of prepulsion power. Does this mean that the U.S. military is moving on to more advanced aerodynamic technology? I have been reading about secret technology that the military has been planning for years, ever since they discovered the advanced technology that the Nazzi’s had when the allies won the war. I have heard stories about how the third reich had flying saucer blue prints which has been proven to be a more efficient way of flying. Are they starting to roll out anti-gravity air crafts?
