    C-130 with only two engines??

    At first I dismissed this entirely. The plane I saw was a turbo-prop & the C-7's I jumped in the later 80's/early 90's @ Herd Boogies were all piston engines (& LOUD). Now I'm wondering if a C-7 could/would be fitted with turbines...? Certainly seems this or the C-160 is what I saw. When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

    C-130 with only two engines??

    I was going to ask this a few months ago when I saw one flying out of McGuire, but I could still swear it had a T-tail, or at least the vertical stabilizers were considerably higher than the wings. C-5's & C-17's are awesome when they fly over @ about 1000ft over the house making their final turn on approach. KC-110's are quiet, & 135's shriek/whistle, while the C-5 rumbles by.

    Water Repellent Automotive Glass Treatment

    Tried using Rain-X about 20 years ago. Couldn't stand how the droplets on the windshield reflected the overhead lights as I was driving at night. Drove me BATTY! Had to scrub that stuff off the windshield! Doesn't do this on side & back glass & actually does help them clear faster/easier than if not treated. I WILL use that stuff on the windshield of my OLD cars (vintage 1968-69) because the wiper blades are likely to be dried out, the cars only get used rarely, & finally I really do try to be them home before dark. Squeek, if you turn the heater to "defrost" the A/C SHOULD also run to dry the air at the same time. If you turn the defroster on & it causes the windshield to fog over THEN clear, I suggest you have the cooling system pressure checked as there is likely to be a leak in the heater core (my GF's 21 year old car needed it replaced a couple weeks ago). A slightly "sweet" small in the car when the heat is first turned on, is a dead give-away coolant is leaking inside. "Chemical warfare" (chemical leak stoppers poured into the radiator) should be avoided unless absolutely necessary, as this may cause trouble later.

    I don't understand why you're all busting the balls of those poor, underworked overpaid union members... Wait, something doesn't look right... When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

    Watermellon Pass

    It's currently just past 8AM, snow is falling at a furious rate as a "Nor'Easter" gets wound up & ready for a 2-day dumping on us poor sad-sacks between NYC & Philly. Having wiped the tears of laughter from my eyes, I can now properly thank you for this morning's most excellent entertainment. Great stuff! Now, go contribute to the "scary stories from the good old days" post! When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

    Hangar 9 New Twin Otter!

    Out of stock. Found their list or recommended parts to finish & without a control it looks like the plane needs about another $400. http://www.horizonhobby.com/Cart/OrderTrapping.aspx?ProdID=HAN4610&TotalItemsAdded=1&SubCategory=Recommended:%20%20Electric When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

    Miles per Gallon - the truth?

    Which means here in the US, those cars will NOT achieve the same numbers! Our gallons are a bit smaller, right? When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.
