A buddy of mine posted this on Facebook, apparently he found it in the Key Publishing Forums. It is yet another dubious “spy photo” from China, still I think it is worthwhile to post regardless … Read the rest of this entry
http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/heli-expo-2013-bell-will-pitch-third-gen-tilt-rotor-for-jmrfvl-383021/ I was surprised to read this report. I seriously believe the V-22 Osprey will be the last military grade tilt-rotor we see. Although developments out of the baseline V-22 and upgrades related to it are likely over the coming … Read the rest of this entry
JBS-AURORA & BEYOND John has the smartest material on talk radio today. I highly recommend you tune in to his show if it is syndicated in your area (if you live in NYC he is live on WABC) or download … Read the rest of this entry
Heroes are among us folks! Nobody deserved to sit in the First Lady’s balcony during the State Of The Union more than this man. Unbelievable bravery and sacrifice under fire.

Am I pissed at our broken Congress and executive leadership about how they set up this perfect failure years ago? YES. But I am more upset at the Pentagon. Am I living … Read the rest of this entry
MAJOR UPDATE! Look here after reading below: http://aviationintel.com/2013/02/06/iron-posts-full-documentary-about-rq-170-sentinel-capture-including-pictures-from-its-recovery/ I stand by my earlier statements 100% concerning the real possibility that Iranian and possibly Russian and Chinese scientists have penetrated the RQ-170′s memory banks, which like the aircraft itself, may very … Read the rest of this entry
I know people are waiting for me to post a big picture by picture analysis of Iran’s unveiled “F-313″ not-so-fighter fighter. I don’t think this is necessary, obviously the aircraft is questionable for many, many reasons. None-the-less I still want … Read the rest of this entry

This type of thing is a huge … Read the rest of this entry
