A Few Migs, On the Deck of the U.S.S. Intrepid Mig 15, Mig 17 And Mig 21

I know this has nothing to do with the theme of this blog, but I hate to let a good photo op go to waste.

Concorde G-BOAD Alpha Delta Walk Around

Took a day trip with my grandson On May 28. I took him to see Fleet Weekend held every year in New York City. Everything takes place on or near the old aircraft carrier Intrepid. Actullay I wanted to see the British Airways Concorde G-BOAD that is on display. Had a real great tour got some photos and enjoyed the day.

Signatures of the last Flight Crew To Fly AD.. Captain L. Scott
I originally wrote this but :
Frank Van Haste corrected it:
On 7 Feb 96, Capt. Scott and his crew set the (still standing) speed record for flight from JFK to LHR of 2:52:59. That elapsed time is written, presumably by Capt. Scott, under his signature.

Now that is pretty cool....
