I’m working on a list of the “Socially Charming” things I’ve been known to say out loud. Feel free to quote me on things you’ve heard me say.
As I turned to the runway, 269 was just lifting off and “flop” the left wing folds up. I was thinking, “Where’s this thing going to crash?”
After a 17-month battle with pancreatic cancer, Astronaut Sally Ride died on 23 July, 2012.
Ride joined NASA in 1978, and in 1983 (STS-7, Challenger) became the first American woman in space.She was 32 at the time which also made her the youngest astronaut.
With London on the horizon let me offer some Olympic moments that I feel are the Greatest. It’s not always in the winning. So here in no particular order…
Ever get to fly in an F-16 fighter? I have. Many of my friends have. Sometimes I forget that everyone doesn’t get to do this. Savannah Guthrie of the Today Show got a ride. From her big brother no less. LtCol Camron “Arlo” Guthrie is assigned to the 158th Fighter Wing of the Vermont Air National Guard. The Green Mountain Boys. For the record. I got two rides.
When I first heard that the Me-163 Komet was flying again I said, “By who? Suicidal Pilots?”. The rocket take off of the combat 163’s killed a lot of pilots. At a 2009 war-bird meeting south of Paris a replica Me 163 Komet replica built by EADS Germany was on static display and in the air. It’s a full scale replica.

The names have been omitted and the stories, although true have been slightly altered So don’t out them if you recognize them. Even if it’s you. Okay?
