Aviation photography

February 23, 2010

Ok, I admit I like a bit of aviation porn. For preference I like a bit of action in the image, either the aircraft itself or the atmosphere around it, for example:


I also judge pictures on the lighting and composition, this is a good example:


And last, but in no way least, I like pictures that just show something a bit strange or unusual:


Fantastic comeback.

I love this. MSNBC arsehole tries to “subtly” suggest they’re all a load of white racists and they manage to make him look like a complete fraud. The sooner the old MSM dies the better.

This is good.

I can see why this guy (Glen Beck) is so popular:


Nice article.

Lefty US Media.

February 18, 2010

Brian Micklethwait at Samizdata has an article;  Making the US old media notice Climatgate

It’s interesting that the US MSM appears to be even more wedded to climate alarmism than the British (and maybe rest-of-world) MSM. It has long been claimed by evil rightists (like me) that the US MSM are far to the  left of the US political centreground. It must be painful for them to consider having to discard the best anti-capitalist weapon in their inventory.

Great article

Russian PAK-FA/Sukhoi T-50 makes its first flight.

January 29, 2010


Interesting aircraft, it looks like it owes a lot to the Sukhoi Su27. It will be interesting to see how long it takes them to get it ready for service. The newsreaders claimed they’d be able to start marketing it from 2015-2017, which appears to be feasable as long as Russia doesn’t run short on money during development and they don’t hit any technical problems.
