    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


    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,

    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!!!
    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.

    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!


    Here SHE is!

    As you scroll down, notice
    the two twin towers on top.


    Here SHE is,
    the USS New York,
    made from the
    World Trade Center!

    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

    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

     Senior Citizen, Yes Sir!

    Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every conceivable deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary. We know we take responsibility for all we have done and do not blame others.

    HOWEVER, upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was NOT the senior citizens who took:

    The melody out of music,
    pride out of appearance,
    courtesy out of driving,
    romance out of love,
    commitment out of marriage,
    responsibility out of parenthood,
    togetherness out of the family,
    learning out of education,
    service out of patriotism,
    Golden Rule from rulers,
    nativity scene out of cities,
    civility out of behavior,
    refinement out of language,
    dedication out of employment,
    prudence out of spending,
    ambition out of achievement or
    God out of government and school.

    And we certainly are NOT the ones who eliminated patience and tolerance from personal relationships
    And interactions with others!!

    And, we do understand the meaning of patriotism,
    And remember those who have fought and died for our country.

    Does anyone under the age of 50 know the lyrics to the Star Spangled Banner?

    What about the last verse of My Country 'tis of Thee?

    "Our father 's God to thee,
    Author of liberty,

    To Thee we sing..
    Long may our land be bright,
    With freedom's Holy light.
    Protect us by Thy might,
    Great God our King."

    Just look at the Seniors with tears in their eyes and
    Pride in their hearts as they stand at attention with
    Their hand over their hearts!


    I'm the life of the party…… Even if it lasts until 8 p.m.

    I'm very good at opening childproof caps…. With a hammer.

    I'm awake many hours before my body allows me to get up.

    I'm smiling all the time because I can't hear a thing you're saying.

    I'm sure everything I can't find is in a safe secure place, somewhere.

    I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that's just my left leg.

    I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.

    I'm a walking storeroom of facts….. I've just
    Lost the key to the storeroom door.

    Yes, I'm a SENIOR CITIZEN and I think I am
    Having the time of my life!

    Now if I could only remember who sent this to me,
    I wouldn't send it back to them, but I would send
    It to many more too!

    Spread the laughter
    Share the cheer
    Let's be happy
    While we're here.
