There's a NASA plane down here out of Ellington field that looks like a U2 but it's white, no idea what it is but I used to see it all of the time.

You want to buy one? It might fit in a flat rate mailer.

That would be an interesting photo challenge for this thread...all photos must contain something old, and something new, in the same frame.

Be interesting to see what turned up....

USMC, I think this is your thread, since you get all the old stuff.

You're correct, thank you!



NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC) operates the only two WB-57's still flying in the world today from Ellington Field, Houston, Texas.

I know some of those people.

and while the boat is brand new, I'd bet those howitzers are less than 20 years old.

C130montana, I started a thread a while back about what my son should expect as a Crew Chief in the USAF, and I think you replied in it.

Well, he's in Tech school now at Randolph and will be assigned to a C-130! He got his duty station today for somewhere in New Mexico.
Just thought I'd update.

Here is a 40mm gun from WWII mounted in an AC-130. The last lot I shot had brass from 1945.
