    ----------------------
    That's the Avro "Avrocar"...a one-off,
    experimental, "Coanda effect" VTOL
    'flying saucer' built for the U.S military,
    circa 1957-'58 by AVRO-Canada. Back
    in the mid-1980's when I worked for
    Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. in
    Mississauga, I worked with two former
    AVRO employees - a metal fabricator
    and a pattern-maker who worked on
    both the Avro "Avoocar' 'flying saucer'
    project and on the also equally ill-fated
    Avro "Arrow" jet interceptor whose
    cancellation on "Black Friday" in 1958
    killed the company. Wilupedia
    has an entry on the Avrocar here -

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avrocar_(aircraft).

    I also found two neat Youtube videos
    showing the Avrocar undergoing
    testing circa 1957 too.

    Air show of mostly Vintage warplanes.
    Website has a couple dozen photos of planes from Southern California. Some used in movies. A few Japanese and Russian.
    I heard some of the planes flying in yesterday to Big Bear California airport.

    It's a Northrop P-61 "Black Widow," not a P-38, designed specifically as a night fighter...
     
  29. People these days need railings because they are used to being protected against any and all mishaps. Without railings they would walk right over the edge and blame someone else for not putting up a defense.
