North Korean missiles

I wonder why our Navy don't station ships between Japan and Korea and when The North Koreans launch a rocket, once it is over the sea it doesn't really belong to anyone.  This would be a ideal time to test our Missile defence system and target practice.  I think this would discourage the No. Koreans to think twice about testing a Missile..See More

Hi Ron, Read some your exploits in boot camp. Seems no matter where you go there'll always be someone in the crowd who is a prankster. Did you do any "short-sheeting"? That one always worked, and the victim was always mad as hell when he realized what was happening. And then, to look around and see everyone laughing. Toal outrage! Lou

F-16 DRONE

Not a good day for the future of manned aircraft. The pilot is on the endangered list it seems. This little 4 minute Boeing video is really something.... a first for a full size jet airplane.

Thousands of planes that were grave yard bound, with costs in the hundreds of millions, now can be used as never before. These F-16 aircraft have been in the bone yard at Davis-Monthan for 15 years and are now being used as drones!

Scary Robotics ......think of all the…

don't know what to add to this story, except that it apparently is true.

Description: cid:X.MA1.1349194980@aol.com

For a half a century, the US Navy kept a lid on the details of the

incident that prompted this salutation. A Miami news reporter made the first public disclosure in 1958 after he stumbled upon the truth while covering a reunion of the destroyer's crew. The Pentagon reluctantly and tersely confirmed his story, but only a smattering of newspapers took…
