I want about half dollar sized (Petsmart's are about nickel-sized and they just don't last...I've bought three from them at various times and none lived longer than a week). Depending on the price and shipping, I might consider getting one from outside AZ. It's gonna be a while before I get one anyway (want to completely stock the tank with everything else, THEN add the angel).Slug said:I know where you can buy them small bass, would have to get them shipped from texas but... Looks like a nice wild altum.
Yeah the V-22 are so cool! This one is the Air Force varient and I actually get to see it fairly often cuz I live near the base they are stationed at, Kirtland AFB. My Mom is retired Major in the Air Force and now works in civil service at the base and has connections so I am trying to see if she can arrange a ride for us in the V-22, we already got one in the C-130!Slug said:Always loved the look of those F-4.
Those V-22 are something else. I work with them a good bit in the Marines as landing support. They kind of scare me because of the problems they've had with them, but they are a really cool machine.
Awesome, I'm amongst friends. My fiancee is a 15U, works on Chinooks. I was a 68T animal care specialist! Go Army!Slug said:
Go Thunderbirds! I love seeing those guys, seen them 2 or 3 times. The airshows are always so much fun and the nice thing anbout the airshow in Oshkosh, WI. is that you still have a good amount of military presence but also get a lot of civilian stuff that you don't get at airshows on AFBs. P-51 is I think my favorite all time plane and they of course had loads of them. This year in honor of the 75th anniversary of the B-17s first flight they got four together to do some formation flying and a missing man formation. There are only about 15 flying in the entire world so this will not be seen again. No F-22 there this yearbut in 08 and 07 they had some there are also some stationed south of us at Holloman AFB so we occasionally see them.ccb04 said:Great pics NMfishman.
Myself and my father also love military history/aviation & airshows. He's a history buff that served in the Navy and is a Korean War vet having served in the Air Force during that time.
Here in Nevada, we of course have Nellis AFB ... home of the Thunderbirds. Nellis has put on some terrific airshows over the years. Their 50th anniversary show was the best to date. It's amazing to see everything from P-51 Mustangs, B-17's, etc. to modern day marvels like the F-22 Raptor.
