I can hear his crew chief now. You say this bird picked up a vibration on that last mission L-T? Well there’s yer problem….
It’s been a while since the last Thunderbolt Thursday. Since we’re off tomorrow for Good Friday, does that make this Thunderbolt Thursday: Friday Came Early Edition?
In case I don’t get around to posting anything for a bit, have a Happy Easter!
How about some nice shots of Mustangs escorting Superforts?
Nice to see everyone is keeping a safe distance from each other…
I haven’t been able to figure out the who/where/when of this picture but it’s striking nonetheless…
UPDATE: This is possibly a formation from the 447th BG
The weatherguessers are predicting a “wintry mix” tomorrow morning with the best chances of snow and sleet to the West and Northwest of us. Probably.
When I head out to my truck to head to work tomorrow morning, I fully expect it to look like this Ju 88 from KG 51 “Edelweiß” possibly taken in the Ukraine, 1941.
My beaming bride asked me to order a couple of things she needed off Amazon and somehow these just showed up in my cart. I know, crazy, right?
I mentioned in another post I’m thinking of getting back into modelling. Let me rephrase that. I’m thinking about getting back into building plastic models. I’ve still got some of the tooling I used back then but I know I’ll need some new files, sandpaper and a small saw for sure. Then there’s the dilemma of an airbrush. I’ve already got a compressor I can use but I need a decent, inexpensive airbrush rig so I’ll be researching those in the near future.
At least I’ll have something to read while finding out how deep the rabbit hole goes. And that doesn’t include the books I’d like on the T-60 or Russian artillery tractors like the very dieselpunk looking Komintern artillery tractor.
