The 380th Expeditionary Wing used to be the 380th Bombardment Wing when I was stationed in Plattsburgh. After BRAC in 1991, it was recommisioned. It roots trace back all the way to WWII
I guess they need them for advice upon landing? That is crazy!
And taking off.
And "they" say you can't learn stuff on BG! I still think car mfgs should use the U2 chase/help in their car commercials. Very cool.
Why does the eclipse line up perfectly?...
If it aint broke, already build, and proves reliable I say use it. Especially when you can upgrade certain things or when the more modern stuff isn't tried and tested or more open to modern day vulnerabilities (hacking, foreign made parts, etc.) It still amazes me though. I recently heard that some of our ICBM facilities are still using flopping drives and old computers, I guess the same rational- not internet connected, harder to hack, still works, and can perform the basic functions needed without "frills." Not sure on the veracity.
this is cool...
Is it the lens or what?
That is really cool however, Why is the earth in the airplane video round yet flat in this one and many others? Is it the lens or what? This balloon is nearly twice as high up as the max height that a U2 Spy plane can reach.
