\’bout ten years ago I stole a model plane from my brother, because he wouldn\’t let me help him make a model of an F-15 he was working on, so while he was busy I swiped an F-16 kit from his pile and made/painted it, and fell in love with fighter jets, a dreamy one sided romance that continues to this day. He wasn\’t too happy. I painted it pink.

    1. Goddamn, the mountains in that second picture make me homesick for places that aren’t my home anymore.

      I fucking hate living in the desert.

    2. I always enjoy the shots of Jets flying over Egypt. I love Ancient Civilizations and Fighter Jets.

    4. @Puulaahi: Instead of Moses bringing down plagues, he calls in a precision airstrike.

    5. The Navy turned the Falcon down for two reasons: 1 – They weren’t strong enough to survive repeated traps on a carrier. 2 – They foresaw the wire chafing issue the Air Force was later sued over. It seemed obvious to Naval engineers that rubbing wires across a sharp edge would lead to failure. Go figure. 🙂
