What about (as you would say) bewbies?
There's definitely been mention.
um...pics or it didn't happen.........
I figured they had been...
And in particular, the (Baby) Blue-Footed Booby, indigenous to the Galapagos Islands...
You're trying to get me banned!
I was talking about screen shot of the forum...really...
You two are shenanigans!
Happy Friday y'all!
shenanigans = good guides
I'll tell you what amazes ME: Stratolaunch from Scaled Composites! This thing is essentially two catamaran 747 fuselages with a cargo pod between them. How in the world this thing will stay aloft with that much weight is beyond me...

How would you like to pilot THAT monster, Cap't Ron? Especially with an off-center cockpit?
You love it!
Rutan is one crazy dude. Admire the he'll out of his designs though, even if they MUST be a stress analysts worst nightmare.
After all these years I still like watching planes land.
Don't tell anyone, but I'm friggin amazed that a 500,000 pound airplane can fly.
Since this is a family forum I can't describe the anatomical reaction I had watching that video.
The fact it can fly doesn't amaze me. What gets me is I'm not sure how you could taxi that mother. Besides oversized taxiways/runways you'd need off-center taxi/runway lines for the off-center cockpit.
I don't spend a lot on a purse, but I somehow spend a lot on purses. I have a bit of a collection of them. My husband calls me a purse whore. I think that's just wrong.
I would need therapy if I only got new shoes once a year.
Oh my...that's gonna be a painful ride. We took the train from Richmond to Miami once. I will NEVER...I repeat NEVER...take a train again. That was the longest 24 hours of my life.
Well, the article stated that it will need a 3.5 kilometer runway to build up enough lift to leave the ground. But landing that thing off-center? Serious pucker factor...
Morning! Another day of work
This will make you hate Saturday
Morning everyone! Sorry to hear you're working SVT.
Makes the day even longer with no activity here, lol.
Sorry you're stuck inside today. I just dropped by for a minute. I'm on a layover in Los Angeles and my daughter flew in to spend the day with me before I fly back to Tokyo tonight. I think we're going to hike up to the Hollywood sign this morning.
I almost had to work today, but we had a massive database server failure yesterday. Which is good, because my parents are in town today, and with my bro only an hour away, gonna be most of the family together.
At brunch this morning with a friend since the lady is working. Absolute beautiful weather. May hit up a Nationals game later today.
Happy Saturday everyone!
Morning y'all. Sorry for all who work Sat. If it makes any difference I work Sundays.
A 3.5 kilometer runway is less 12,000 feet. That's a normal "long" runway. Denver even has a 16,000 foot runway.
Length isn't the problem (calm down BB) it's the width I'd be worried about. As you mentioned, landing off-center would require off-center runway markings for the pilot to aim for. The other thing? Crosswind landings would be a b****!
That's what she said!!!!
