My office is pretty much right at the end of the runway at Alliance airport just north of Fort Worth.  Right now, Fifi the B-29 just landed, Somebody in a Pitts S2a is practicing, Maybe Sean Tucker.  Fat Albert is sitting at the end of the runway, as is the Golden Knights F-27.  Almost all of the Airshow performers will practice today, as will the Blue Angels.

The Blues practiced yesterday.  A couple of their maneuvers take a jet right over my office.  I am NOT going to get much work done today

Rumor is the F-22 is suppose to be up around 1400.

Really wish I was home this weekend.

I thought Fifi was still getting her engines rebuilt.



ETA: Looks like she was declared good to go last month. Awesome.

Google Lyn Fite Commemorative Air Force. Mr. Fite is my new boss. Coolest job interview I have ever been on. It started with a personal guided tour of FiFi.

Holy shit that Raptor is Fuckin bad.

The F-22 is flying right now.  That's a fuckin jet doing thing's and Extra 300 does.  He has performed a flat spin(well almost), he has hung it on the nozzles and HOVERED the damn thing vertically  I didn't think you could hover a jet like that.  Lets talk rotation, at the top of a climb  he flipped over 270 degrees and transitioned to level flight and lost almost no altitude.  Un believable.  Why didn't I bring my video camera.  My opinion of the Raptor just went up!

Primo, if your reading this, pass the word to your pilots to just stay home!
