    Life is Like This

  • No desire for success?
    To not desire success is not merely rare, it is close to impossible. More often than not, when you see someone who seems immune to the lure of success, what you see is only someone whose idea of success is different from the conventional idea of success (Like, you know,... Read more »
  • Action and words

  • Medicare unnecessary?
    You near the time when you are respected (OR, to be realistic, discarded) as a senior citizen, you tend to worry more about health than anything else. When you were a kid, people would tell you 'Health is Wealth' and you would scoff at it saying, "How do I buy... Read more »

  • Risky Investment?
    One of the most popular things you can do on social media or, indeed, media of any kind is to offer investment advice. Though, to be sure, it is more the kind of advice that says 'Buy this to double your money in days' sort of advice that really attracts eyeballs... Read more »
  • Everybody knows?
    I made the mistake of saying "One of my friends..." in a conversation and the group 'Grammar Nazi' (G.N. for short) was all over me about how the right usage was 'One of my friend...' I mean, yeah, I know that this is how it is being used these days,... Read more »

    Flight Journal

  • South Pacific Warrior: A rare combat Mustang
    “We’d fly over the target, level, and the target would go under the wing. We’d be slowing down, and slowing down, pull up, and just do a wing over. Slightly beyond the target, pull over, and then come straight down. We had a gun sight, but [we’d] just line the... Read more »
  • Night Hunter — the first Corsair equipped with radar
    Hunched in the cockpit of an F4U-2 Corsair in the darkest, blackest night he could remember, Second Lieutenant Frank Lang peered at the 6-inch scope in the center of his instrument panel and saw nothing significant to break up the green-yellow line inscribing a circle around the dial. The post... Read more »
  • Kittyhawk Jungle Rescue
    Confined in a microworld of levers, switches, and instruments, Royal Australian Air Force Flight Sergeant James Denman Harvey slid his Curtiss P-40’s eight-piece canopy backwards and looked down. Hammered by tropical heat and skin slippery in perspiration, he studied the surface of a newly captured airstrip called “Tadji.” Harvey and... Read more »
  • The Rarest of Tigers

However, while doting over what were... Read more »
  • DeHavilland DH84 Dragon
    Many British and Commonwealth air routes were established by airlines using de Havilland’s 6-passenger seat, twin-engine biplane, the DH84 Dragon. The Dragon’s first flight (November 1932) pre-dated the better-known DH89 Dragon Rapide (or Dominie in military service) by two years, although both aircraft made their maiden flights at the DH...

  • Me 163 Komet: A Brilliant Failure
    The Komet was not a war’s-end-crazy-idea born of desperation, as is often believed. In fact, the design began in the late 1930s, and the prototype flew in 1941. It was the hands-down winner for the crown of fastest operational aircraft of World War II, both in speed and climb. From... Read more »
