    Fwd: 3 Carrier Groups and Boeing 797 – A New Way To Fly

    Check out the lady in the cockpit!

    is the Navy ready or what……

    Great pictures…Boeing does it again…
    3 Carrier Groups and Boeing 797 – A NewWay To Fly

    cid:EA684B448BD248F28C86782C2D90B523@ernie4115d2ff7

    The plane in these pictures is still officially the ‘Air
    Vehicle Number 1’, a prototype, on board the USS George
    Washington CVN-73 for catapult fit checks. Not exactly still
    Top Secret but certainly not yet made public.

    It will be known as the F/A-37. Although specs are
    classified, it is believed to be Mach 3.5 (top speed in the
    Mach 4 range) super-cruise stealth fighter/bomber/interceptor
    with approximately a 4,000nm range. Awesome!

    Check out the Navy test pilot in the cockpit of the
    F/A-37…LT Kara Wade.

    For the first time in over 20 some odd years, three carrier strike groups
    got together in formation for a great photo op.

    From top to bottom are the aircraft carriers, ABRAHAM LINCOLN,
    KITTY HAWK and RONALD REAGAN.

    We even had Air Force planes fly-over, see the B-2 Stealth Bomber
    in the fifth & seventh picture down. The only warships not seen in the

    photos are the 4 nuclear powered submarines standing guard.

    Now this is an AIRPLANE!!!
    cid:5B50857A7D58476BB6CA70D42028CA27@ernie4115d2ff7
    Look at this new aircraft…
    Boeing is preparing a 1000 passenger jet that could reshape the
    Air travel industry for the next 100 years. The radical Blended Wing
    design has been developed by Boeing in cooperation with the
    NASA Langley Research Center.

    The mammoth plane will have a wing span of 265 feet compared
    to the 747’s 211 feet, and is designed to fit within the newly
    created terminals used for the 555 seat Airbus A380, which is 262 feet wide.

    The new 797 is in direct response to the Airbus A380 which has racked
    up 159 orders, but has not yet flown any passengers. Boeing decide to
    kill its 747X stretched super jumbo in 2003 after little interest was shown
    by airline companies, but has continued to develop the ultimate Airbus
    crusher 797 for years at its Phantom Works research facility in
    Long Beach, Calif.

    The Airbus A380 has been in the works since 1999 and has accumulated
    $13 billion in development costs, which gives Boeing a huge advantage
    now that Airbus has committed to the older style tubular aircraft for
    decades to come.

    There are several big advantages to the blended wing design, the most
    important being the lift to drag ratio which is expected to increase by an
    amazing 50%, with overall weight reduced by 25%, making it an
    estimated 33% more efficient than the A380, and making Airbus’s
    $13 billion dollar investment look pretty shaky.
    cid:FE1BA564D0244ABA9FC0CBE0BC8C356F@ernie4115d2ff7

    High body rigidity is another key factor in blended wing aircraft. It reduces
    turbulence and creates less stress on the air frame which adds to efficiency,
    giving the 797 a tremendous 8800 nautical mile range with its 1000
    passengers flying comfortably at mach 0.88 or 654 mph (+-1046km/h)
    cruising speed another advantage over the Airbus tube-and-wing designed
    A380’s 570 mph (912 km/h).

    The exact date for introduction is unclear, yet the battle lines are clearly
    drawn in the high-stakes war for civilian air supremacy.

    What an amazing thing!

    GREAT NEW PHOTOS!

    the USS New York,
    made from the
    World Trade Center!

    cid:153A174097E54EACA54E7F46EEE0365C@contemporarymortgage.com
    USS New York…
    It was built with 24 tons of
    scrap steel from the
    World Trade Center.

    It is the fifth in a new class of warship –
    designed for missions that include special
    operations against terrorists. It will carry
    a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-ready
    Marines to be delivered ashore by helicopters
    and assault craft.

    Steel from the World Trade Center was melted
    down in a foundry in Amite, LA to cast the ship’s
    bow section. When it was poured into the molds
    on Sept 9, 2003, ‘those big rough
    steelworkers treated it with total reverence,’
    recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there.


    ‘It was a spiritual moment for everybody there.’


    Junior Chavers, foundry operations manager,
    said that when the trade center steel first
    arrived, he touched it with his hand and the
    ‘hair on my neck stood up.’
    ‘It had a big meaning to it for
    all of us,’ he said. ‘They knocked us down.
    They can’t keep us down. We’re going to be
    back.’

    The
    ship’s motto?


    ‘Never Forget’

    Please keep this going so everyone can see
    what we are made of in this country!



    "If we ever forget that we’re
    one nation under God,
    we will be a nation gone under." – Ronald Reagan


    GOD BLESS YOU

    Heavens to Murgatroyd

    Subject: Fwd: Fw: Heavens to Murgatroyd

    Murgatroyd, remember that word? Would you believe the email spell checker did not recognize the word Murgatroyd?

    Heavens to Murgatroyd!

    Lost Words from our childhood: Words gone as fast as the buggy whip! Sad really.

    The other day a not so elderly lady said something to her son about driving a Jalopy and he looked at her quizzically and said "What the heck is a Jalopy?"

    He never heard of the word jalopy! She knew she was old, … but not that old.

    Well, I hope you are Hunky Dory after you read this and chuckle.

    About a month ago, I illuminated some old expressions that have become obsolete because of the inexorable march of technology.

    These phrases included "Don’t touch that dial," "Carbon copy," "You sound like a broken record" and "Hung out to dry."

    Back in the olden days we had a lot of ‘moxie’. We’d put on our best ‘bib and tucker’ to ‘straighten up and fly right’.

    Heavens to Betsy! Gee whillikers! Jumping Jehoshaphat! Holy moley!

    We were ‘in like Flynn’ and ‘living the life of Riley’.

    Even a regular guy couldn’t accuse us of being a knucklehead, a nincompoop or a pill. Not for all the tea in China!

    Back in the olden days, life used to be swell, but when’s the last time anything was swell?

    Swell has gone the way of beehives, pageboys and the D.A., of spats, knickers, fedoras, poodle skirts, saddle shoes, penny loafers and pedal pushers. And don’t forget Saddle Stitched Pants.

    Oh, my aching back! Kilroy was here, .. but he isn’t anymore.

    We wake up from what surely has been just a short nap and before we can say, "Well, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle!"

    Or, This is a ‘fine kettle of fish’!

    We discover that the words we grew up with, the words that seemed omnipresent as oxygen, have vanished with scarcely a notice from our tongues and our pens and our keyboards.

    Poof, go the words of our youth, the words we’ve left behind

    We blink, and they’re gone. Where have all those great phrases gone?Long gone: Pshaw, The milkman did it. Hey, it’s your nickel! Don’t forget to pull the chain. Knee high to a grasshopper. Well, Fiddlesticks! Going like sixty. I’ll see you in the funny papers. Don’t take any wooden nickels. Wake up and smell the roses. It turns out there are more of these lost words and expressions than Carter has liver pills.

    This can be disturbing stuff! ("Carter’s Little Liver Pills" are gone too.) We of a certain age have been blessed to live in changeable times. For a child, each new word is like a shiny toy, a toy that has no age. We at the other end of the chronological arc have the advantage of remembering there are words that once existed and there were words that once strutted their hour upon the earthly stage and now are heard no more, except in our collective memories. It’s one of the greatest advantages of aging. Leaves us to wonder where Superman will find a phone booth.

    See ya later, alligator! Okidoki!

    WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE FABULOUS 50’S. NO ONE WILL EVER HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY AGAIN. WE WERE GIVEN ONE OF OUR MOST PRECIOUS GIFTS, …

    OUR MEMORIES!

    BLIND MAN. 

    Forwarded message

    Date: 26 April 2018 at 05:26
    Subject: Fwd: Fw: Fwd: BLIND MAN.

    Two nuns are ordered to paint a room in the convent, with a warning from the

    Mother Superior not to get even a drop of paint on their habits.

    After conferring about this, the two nuns decide to lock the door of the room,

    strip off their habits, and paint naked.

    In the middle of the project, there’s a knock at the door.

    "Who is it?" calls one of the nuns.

    "Blind man," replies a voice from the other side of the door.

    The two nuns look at each other and shrug, both deciding that no harm

    can come from letting a blind man into the room. They open the door.

    "Nice boobs," says the man,

    "Where do you want the blinds?"
