    I worked for the Mercedes dealer ship in Ft. Worth ,Tx. We Were on the south end of Carsewell Air Force Base and you could stand in the service driveway and it lined up perfect with the runway. The last week of the month they were doing touch and goes to burn up ther fuel allotment we had B52 and B1 coming in all day. You could see the crew in the open bomb bay doors and they would wave at us.
    The army first tested Puff at Warner Robins.
     
  7. Years ago at Ft Dix the compass course was at the end of McGuire AFB runway. Standing on the ground looking up at the C-5's landing and taking off looked as if they were going slow enough to just fall out of the sky. So big and going fast but optical illusion.

    The G's were on their way out and the H's were coming on the scene. That was roughly 1997.

    Thought I'd share a few photo's with you from the UK:
    These are from White Waltham Aerodrome near Maidenhead, Berkshire, taken at their annual Members Day last year.
    Enjoy:

    That guy has got some heavy concentration going on with his camera...I realize that plane is probably not as close to him as it appears at that angle of shot...but still no flinching, no head spin around ....he is on it....

    You are probably right, but that's the way it is at the races.
