Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Right in the "KISSER".........♣...Lost "Post"........"PITY PARTY".....PSA Sharing 'Smiles'...♥Granddaughters♥.......Vintage.... 'Airline Ads'.......♠ 'Rock' and a very,'Hard place'......♠JFK.....security breach.......by jetskier........♥F-18 Super hornet.....passover.......Cap'n Aux's.........Vlog..."Zen......and the art of a controlled fall from the sky"..........♠



I think one good  'Pat'........ deserves another"....and Cappy.....has been very 'generous' on his blog.....
and giving "MissTWA" a shout out......many times..!!!!
His "Vlog".....is Funny and Educational....
and like I said, most 'Kisses' are....the same......it's the "CHEEK".....
it "Lands" on (Yes Pun☺♠)....in question.....
.........;/.........









Look at this "Sunset"............

can almost feel the 'Warmth'........♣


 



WELL WELL WELL............ I "LOST" my whole last "Post"........couple of hours ago.........
been trying to recover it.......and all I can get is the 'title' and the comments.......which I'm Thankful for.........
I was/am  VERY VERY UPSET...........and while getting hit by a "Mack Truck".....is far worse.........!!!(serious)
But in the "Blogger"......world.....it can be quite........."Maddening" X 1000!!!!!!!.........
If any one knows how to recover a "Post".......even if 'deleted'......
I would sure appreciate it.......!!!!!..I know in the scheme of things......I should be more worried about the 'tadpole' thats on the endangered species list..........but.......
Dammit.........a lot of work goes into my the 'Posts'..........they really  "Labor's of Love"........There Not about me.........their about Us......Everything that go into my "Posts"............are things I want to share.............thats how I see it........"Aviation"......is such a LARGE part of my, and a large part of many of your livies............as well......... .
So there was NO denying my Horror........when the blank page showed up.........after 'editing'...for the zillioneth time.......as I always do................

OK OK........I am going to end my "PITY PARTY"..........and get on with the "World of Aviation"......LOOK.......I don't need to walk out in front of a "Mack Truck".......and barely escape being killed in an 'ungodly' way.........to put this in perspective........Because,  then I would be so happy to be 'ALIVE'.......Screw the "LOST" post......I just barely escaped "Certain Death".....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.........♠
So time for some lovely "PSA" (Pacific South Airlines) Pic's.......
THEY SURE BRING A SMILE TO MY FACE.......!!!!!....I do so "Appreciate"  all my 'Aviation buddies and close friends, who come to visit.......here......and I always hope you come back..........Here please, take a "Hug".....before you go.........!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Bon....
Hard Work should never go unnoticed......especially when it's so Damn Funny........!!!!!

Take Care my 'Girlie'.......♠

capnaux said...

Great extras, too. Love the one-liners--hadn't heard some of them! Notice the go-around on the 2nd landing in your vid? Coulda used this vid! Also: I think the last (3rd) approach on the vid was actually quite well done!

capnaux said...

...and LOVE the "Kissimmee" airport add too, LOL!!

Giulia said...

Who is that beautiful lady in the photo? xo Miss you, girlie!

That was a really good post to promote Cappy's vlog. It really is a good video and so much time and effort was taken to put it together. I hope many many others have a chance to view it!

Love your little MissTwa add-ons. Like your own kisses to the post. xo

Take care, everyone.

Craig R said...

Love the video. Cap has a real future in film!

That F18 isn't a super hornet. It's a (Canadian) CF-18 ... a Canadian-spec fighter based on the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18. They've been Canada's primary fighter / strike aircraft since the early 80s, so even though they've al been modernized in the last 10 years, the airframes are getting to be fairly high time. They're scheduled to be replaced by F-35 Lightnings ... supposedly starting in 2016, but political events surrounding that will likely push back the date.

Cool thing about those CF-18s, and you can see it in the picture ..... see the fake cockpit painted on the bottom of the fuselage, where the nose gear pops out? The idea is to confuse an opponent in a dogfight. It works, too. The US Marines and the Spanish air force have subsequently also adopted it.

Cool, or what?

Maybe if capnaux pained wheels on the top of some of those airliners, the landings might go more smoothly :-)

Istanbul Airside said...

Just a quick hello:)
Take care everyone...

Dave W said...

Hi All,

Thanks for the correction Craig, I had an inkling it was a CF-18 afterward - especially as it was pictured in Canada - duh! LOL!Love the additional facts too! I probably confused myself having recently watched the Super Hornet at Farnborough...

Hi Metin!

All the best!

getjets said...

Thanks GG.....One 'Pat' deserves another...and Cappy has always been generous...and puts my 'humble bumble' blog address on his blog 'Posts'......even though I give him such a hard sometimes...course, we all know he deserves it.....KIDDING..;)))))

"you can see it in the picture ..... see the fake cockpit painted on the bottom of the fuselage, where the nose gear pops out? The idea is to confuse an opponent in a dogfight. It works, too. The US Marines and the Spanish air force have subsequently also adopted it."

The CF-18......has a fake 'cockpit'....painted...on the fuselage.....

Thanks for setting us straight with the fighter...
I don't think I know anyone with as much knowledge as you....when it comes to anything that flies....

might have to put you on the payroll....;))))))

Bas said...

Hi Julie!

That F-18 would've been a thrill to see! I can imagine all the kids staring and pointing lol, epic.

Hi there btw, nice pic of you :)

@Craig, Political Events and fighter jets, it's the same over here with the JSF! Nice fact there, didn't notice and pretty amazing they actually think of this.

Cappy the vid is awesome! Looks like quite some views and comments already on YouTube. You can tell you spent a while editing but it pays off. Perfect!

Have a nice week!

Love the PSA pics ! That was my father's airline since 1963! That's why I am here flying planes today. The left pic is an L-1011 and the right nose is that of a 727. Thanks for sharing!
