Bomber Art ( Luscious Lucille )this is a photo of the B-25 aircraft that was used in the movie "CATCH 22, however the art work is typical of the nose art that was used on aircraft that flew in combat during WWII however it has been modified to make it more presentable.
Anatov AN-82 Biplane-This is a 19 passanger aircraft that is powered by a 1000 HP radial air cooled engine. Recently I got to fly, as a co-pilot,this unique tail dragger airplane. That was quite a thrill and it lands around 40 mph.
This is a replica of the 1935 Thompson Trophy Winner- Mr. Mulligan.
Bellanca Super Viking Research Aircraft used for my early Atmospheric Electricity Research Studies and for checking out the operational characteristich of the Night-time Daytime Optical Survey of Lightning Experiment Hardware( NOSL )that later flew on the Space Shuttle, STS-2, in 1981 as part of the NASA OSTA payload. This was the first NASA MSFC lightning detection and location sensors to observe and provided movies and electrical signatures of lightning as seen from space.
NASA U-2 High Altitude Research Aircraft platform used in 1979 to conduct overflights over thunderstorm during day and night missions to collect optical and electrical emissions from thunderstorms. This type data was used in the design of a future lightning detecting and locating satellite.
This is an AT-6G aircraft that was designed by Mark Fisher and myself so that we could fly it in the X-Plane Flight Simulator Program.
This is me standing on the wing of the North American T-6G aircraft that I took my first orientation ride on November 5, 1951 after I had started my USAF Pilot Training in Class 52G at Spence Field, Moultrie, Ga. In September 2007 I purchased a ride with the Warbirdskyventures Company of Gallatin, TN and I got to fly the same airplane again after 56 years. I flew it for about 45 minutes with an instructor and I did steep turns, Chandells, and I got to do a roll myself. It was great to fly the aircraft and do some of the manuevers that I had done later in my flight training with my Spence/Hawthorne instructor.
