Thank you for the Tomcat picture! You can upload as many Tomcats as you like! I never get bored of this superb fighter and I feel it was ahead of its time and maybe retired too early Anyway there are several opinions on that and the F-18 successor

Having worked for Grumman, including a stint as an aerodynamicist on the F-14 program, you can imagine which side of that argument I lean towards! It's my all-time favorite aircraft!

One of two privately owned T-38s. The story behind this one was that the owner purchased 2 wrecked T-38s and was able to put together a flyable aircraft from them. Taken at the 1985 EAA airshow in Oshkosh.

I'm really enjoying your posts, Mark.

Spitfire restoration at the CAF Camarillo hangar. I thought the 5-bladed prop was pretty cool
