Can't you quit being so happy and whine and complain like the rest of us?

No, I can't. :devil:

Here is a semi-whine,

I was supposed to go flying today, but he had to cancel. So he is going to take me up next weekend. I will post pics when we go flying.

Now if you will excuse me, it is a beautiful day outside and I am going to go ride my bike.

Ok, more to append to this second good day.

After I shot that car above, I drove to the hobby shop. On my way back, I passed by another red Camero with a cream stripe down the side and a covertable (although a year or two later in model).

Two cars down from him was a classic shelby mustang (the old 60's model that was built on a british roadster). I gave him the thumbs up as we passed eachother going in opposite directions.

Then I come home and change into my biking jersey and shorts. I then packed my bike up and drove down to bathesda to ride along a nice bike trail that goes from there all the way to Georgetown, and if you continue it goes all the way to national airport, then mt. Vernon. (it branches off so you can go very far if you want to).

Anyways, there are two ways to leave my house. The front entrance, which takes you onto a big 3 lane road, or a back exit that takes you through a nice small windy road that is heavily wooded. It's really nice because the trees cover the sky and lower the temperature as you drive along it.

So I said what the hell, I'll take the back road today. As I pull up to the intersection, a lady is turning in and there is another car behind her. So she makes her turn. Then the guy behind her stops and waives at me to go. (He had right of way and did not have to stop for me) And then I notice that he is driving a brand new silver $300,000 Bentley. That guy had something money can't buy, class :cool:.

Then I drive down to bathesda and park. As I pull into hte parking lot, I see this really nice purple car. I say to myself, wow, what the hell is that!?

So I took pics of it! I asked the kid who owned it. He couldn't have been a year or two older than I. But he was a real nice guy, he said its a V4 race engine that puts out 490Hp. He said he wants to sell the car for around $100-150,000 (Maybe I heard him wrong, it seems a little bit too high). Man, what a car!

You see those lumps protruding out the hood near the windsheild, those are Racing suspension.

Then after my chat with that chap, I hopped on my bike and rode down to DC.

Heh, what do I see. Its Rolling Thunder! Motorcycles EVERYWHERE!

Awesome!

Then after riding I turn around, and head back home. Then I see a low flying Blackhawk. (It was painted in the sage green and white. Maybe it was marine 2, but I am not sure.)

Well, he was probably flying 200-300 feet over the water and banking HARD right. (If you have ever been next to a low flying helicopter you know the distinct noise the rotor blades make as they make a hard low altitude turn. It makes a LOUD WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP)

Makes me think of the bat mobile. :biggrin: All those filthy rich politicians and lawyers around there seem to be able to afford a lot of nice cars around there. :rolleyes:

Wholly crap! How did I miss this thread Cyrus?!?!?! Pretty good pics I must say.

I can tell you that seeing the B-24, 25 and 17 on the ground is nice, but we had an airshow here last year that had 6 B-17's flying overhead. In formation. It was friggin' awesome. It was also very awe inspiring in the fact that I was looking at 6 going overhead and back in WWII, there would have been hundreds. I simply can not imagine the sensory overload one must have had.

That was a good airshow by the looks of it.

Props for the MH-47E pic. You got a picture of the pinnacle of aviation.
