    This is **not** true but I’m passing it on because the images are real and incredible but I wondered how one single person could get all of these images in so many places on one roll of film. so I researched…

    Fantastic photos taken 68 years ago — sent to us from my brother Ted Cowen in Arizona

    Some of you will have to go to a museum to see what a Brownie camera looked like.

    These photos are absolutely incredible….Read below the first picture and at the end…

    Thought you might find these photos very interesting; what quality from 1941.
    Pearl Harborphotos found in an old Brownie stored in a foot locker. and just recently taken to be developed..

    THESE PHOTOS ARE FROM A SAILOR WHO WAS ON THE USS QUAPAW ATF-11O.
    I THINK THEY’RE SPECTACULAR!

    Pearl Harbor
    On Sunday, December 7th, 1941 the Japanese launched a surprise attack against the U.S. Forces stationed at Pearl Harbor , Hawaii By planning his attack on a Sunday, the Japanese commander Admiral Nagumo, hoped to catch the entire fleet in port. As luck would have it, the Aircraft Carriers and one of the Battleships were not in port. (The USS Enterprise was returning from Wake Island, where it had just delivered some aircraft. The USS Lexington was ferrying aircraft to Midway, and the USS Saratoga and USS Colorado were undergoing repairs in the United States.)

    In spite of the latest intelligence reports about the missing aircraft carriers (his most important targets), Admiral Nagumo decided to continue the attack with his force of six carriers and 423 aircraft. At a range of 230 miles north of Oahu, he launched the first wave of a two-wave attack.. Beginning at 0600 hours his first wave consisted of 183 fighters and torpedo bombers which st ruck at the fleet inPearl Harborand the airfields in Hickam, Kaneoheand Ewa. The second strike, launched at 0715 hours, consisted of 167 aircraft, which again struck at the same targets.


    At 075 3 hours the first wave consisting of 40 Nakajima B5N2 ‘Kate’ torpedo bombers, 51 Aichi D3A1 ‘Val’ dive bombers, 50 high altitude bombers and 43 Zeros struck airfields and Pearl Harbor Within the next hour, the second wave arrived and continued the attack.
    When it was over, the U.S.Losses were:

    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…

    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!

    Here SHE is,
    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
