Australia day FA-18 flypast
« on: January 25, 2007, 09:25:51 PM »
I got lucky today, right place right time! 4 of these beauties did a lap of the bay, and luckily passed right over my head!

Here it comes

Closer!


OMG so close! 200ft!

Then this stuck up behind me!


And our US mates joined in on the party!


And this gannet put on its own display!

Wow, great pics of the F/A-18 Hornet.  I actually have an old simmulator program/game (1995)  for the F/A-18 and, an updated version (2002).  Been playing that quite a bit.

cool pics.  that's what my oldest is working on now.  he says they are super machines!  boy...the things we give our kids to play with  :-)
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
