  1. EwenS, thank you for the correction/information. I apologize for my error.
  2. Bit of a thread over on pprune. Pic of flight deck damage taken from a helicopter I think? https://www.pprune.org/military-aviation/633983-fire-uss-bonhomme-richard-lhd-6-12-jul-20-a-5.html https://www.pprune.org/showthread.php?p=10836724
  3. Sorry to say that I really do not know. Did a quick look and did not find the list of preceding heads of the department.
  4. https://www.nasa.gov/press-release/kathy-lueders-selected-to-lead-nasa-s-human-spaceflight-office Congrats! I wish her luck. Time we got back to the moon IMHO. From an article on the hill. Lueders’ first task will be to exert steady leadership over the HEO directorate, shaken by the train wreck caused by the sudden departure of her predecessor Doug Loverro. Loverro was forced to resign, reportedly because he violated the Procurement Integrity Act by secretly favoring Boeing during the down select for the lunar lander contract. The matter is a subject of an ongoing investigation by the NASA Office of Inspector General. https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2020/06/20/nasa-boeing-bid-probe/
  5. RIP. Condolences to the pilots family and friends.
  6. Oh I can see the defense companies happily supplying enough drones to cover the operational cells on a small to medium sized country. Do not have to worry over much about speed when you have numbers. Heck, Perdix has shown that they can handle/decide on hand off between day/night shifts of drones. Guess the can be jammed, but how and how much power.
  7. Times are changing quickly. Autonomous drones will eventually handle things like SEAD and maybe even CAS. They had better be 99.9% right on target ID.
  8. Perhaps this is more of the you do not fly the F-35 like it is an F-16/F-18/Harrier etc thinking. It should be flown in such a way/envelope so as to maximize it's stealth etc. That is what I read in the link I posted in the other F-35 thread. Perhaps the thinking is that they(planners/higher ups) in this case do not want the F-35 down low to use a gun, and the pilot should not need to get themselves into a dogfight anyway. If the pilot is in a dogfight, they have messed up in a big way.
  9. This looked a hoot. Some great battles I thought. Goodwood revival 2019 I like that #20. I think it is a Marcos Mini Marcos? If I ever make it to the UK, I will need a month to visit Goodwood and all the museums
  10. Glad to see someone FINALLY has made a 1/32 Viggen. Happy for all of you that can finally get one. To the managers who had the chance to bring us an injection plastic kit years ago, well, you missed the boat didnt you? Walks away from keyboard grumbling about some peoples children.
  11. Pilot is okay, and hopefully the Hurri isn't too badly damaged.
  12. Anything I have received that is non perishable gets automatically chucked in the closet for 3 days. I look at the last stage of the delivery(parcel on doorstep) to start that clock. Wash hands. If you know or live with anyone who is high risk, I think that this is worthwhile. Read an interesting article about this darn thing also being a blood vessel virus. Dr's have seen blood clots and organ damage aplenty it seems. My 0.02 cents.
  13. https://iss-sim.spacex.com/ Takes a bit. Slow and steady works best. Sorry if already posted.
  14. Mini vs Alfa at Goodwood. 9 mins. I enjoyed it.
