I heard a pair of round engines a few minutes ago. Grabbed my binoculars (USN WW2 vintage) and was treated to a Zero escorting a Val. They were flying SSE at about 2000' speed about 175-200kts. Those of you in the Galveston/S.Houston area should be on the look out. :eek:


Wings Over Houston Airshow is this weekend. Great for plane spotting.

Sweet! We've got the Fleet Week here in San Franfreako this weekend - not so friendly skies, some of the idiots on the S.F. Board of Stupidvisors wanted to BAN the Blue Angels from doing their show. Not sure if Mayor Gavin Nuissance was part of that crowd or not. Hey, enjoy that show if you go, and get some pics....!!

Hello Ray :
Real airplanes have radial engines and are tail draggers. Indeed do enjoy the show, wish I was there myself. Best around here is when we have "forest" fires we get to see a plethora of antiques such as Neptunes, Orions, S-2 Trackers, DC-4s, C-130, and even once a single tail navy Liberator. Here lately they have a large twin jet bigger than a 737 it sure takes guts to fly them birds to ground level and drop water and chemicals.
Dieter there isn't much left of redeeming social value in this God forsaken state, there are a lot of guns around but this place is so anti-gun that it people leave it gladly. I can't wait till my turn comes up to flip CA the bird and go back to the United States.

Believe it or not, Dieter, but Gavin actaully said that the it was ridiculous to ban the Blue Angels and that it was 'politicaly motivated, not safety related'. Gavin is a stooge, but he does know where money comes from and Fleet Week always brings in tourists.
