You can see the DNA of the Phabulous Phantom in the Voodoo. Quite the performer; like the F-104, built for speed and not for turning with that small wing and high wing loading.

The first time I saw a B-29 I person, I was surprised by how small it was. Always thought it was a huge airplane.

Until you saw a

XC-99 which was a the cargo variant and only 1 was built and was the only operational X cargo aircraft in the USAF. I was on the crew who flew the wings and engine to the boneyard in 2012. I doubt it will ever get restored.

Was cool to go through the hangers at Wright Patt seeing restoration work for new exhibits. We had hauled some other stuff there in the past for them.

Flew around the world in this hooptie for over 10K hours.

Oh yeah!

I worked with a guy that was bragging all shift that he'd now been at LAX TRACON for over 10 years. I'd finally had enough so when I handed-off the next aircraft to him I told him to ask how long he'd been at LA. The guy checked-in and my coworker asked if he had a question for him. The pilot asked how long he'd been at LA and my friend said, sarcastically, more than 10. The pilot asked if that was minutes or days. I about died laughing looking at the deflated look on his face!

Where/when?

I did 27 years in the 9th, 21st (Attached) and 312th.

We probably know a few of the same people.

As far as the XC.99- I walked around it when it was still in one piece and sitting in the ramp at SKF, as well as seeing the parts years later at DM and FFO.

Here's a genuine war hero -- the Swordfish torpedo bomber. It looked like something out of World War I but was the Royal Navy's go-to for the early years of WW2. It's wonderful that it's still flying.

Speaking of livery, practically nobody does it as well as the Japanese. Check out the fine art on the upperworks of this JASDF F-15C!

Not enough commercial love. As unsuccessful as it was, the A380 just has the most imposing presence due to sheer size. No US operators bought one, but I did get a chance to fly one one so happy to check it off my list. They did buy A350s, I think it's better styled than the 787, specifically because of the windows, though the 787 has the best nacelle styling.

Can we agree that of the big 3 US carriers Delta has the best service?

C-141A

I flew to Vietnam on a C-141A Starlifter on April 1, 1969. We had 3 trucks and our ground surveillance radar on board. Not much room left. Or range. We had to stop in Alaska and Japan to refuel before landing at Ben Hoa AFB. Quite an airplane. Got sit in the flight deck a bit during the trip. That was the smoking section.

Pretty sure this is the largest plane in the world, the Antonov 225 Mriya. 3 nacelles is pretty cool but it's not particularly attractive.
