Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
OK, I'm preparing a visual link-page: come and see next week-end :)

As I mentioned in a comment above, I'm hesitating to write diary's about military planes. I have seen most of those planes flying and on static shows, even prototypes of the latest types. I was in the cockpit of some of them. On my computer I have professional flight-simulation programs, and even a joystick of 3Kg wich is a replica of the real F-16 stick. It is a fascinating world : I learned about aerodynamics, pneumatics, hydrolics, electronics, navigation, radar, Infra Red, ILS, FLIR, TCAS .... and lots more.
But at the end : its about a weaponsystem, a thing to kill, or drop super-killers like nuclear bombs. Maybe, after Bush has finished his wars , the next one will be fought again with stones.
