    Invasion USA 1952

    Found this old American film from 1952 which has some good stock footage of early 50s combat aircraft ranging from B29s and B36 to a model Mig 15. View: https://youtu.be/Mg8a9UMqSzY Typical anti Commie era film but full of period flavour.

    Hughes Tool Co. Aircraft Division Engineer Opportunities

    Good Day All - From the collection of the late Mike Burke "The Artist", this is a engineer opportunities brochure with artwork that may be of interest. Guessing mid-'60s as the OH-6A first flew in 1963. Enjoy the Day! Mark

    Laser Battle Station Model Kit Inspiration

    I recently bought a NIB copy of the Revell "Laser Battle Stations" model kit from 1984.

They appear to be modeled...

    Martin EGRESS

    I'm stunned to find out that, unless several searches failed to work properly, there is no thread for the Martin "EGRESS" (EMERGENCY GLOBAL RESCUE, ESCAPE, AND SURVIVAL SYSTEM) capsule. This was a modification of the ejection capsule used on the B-58... fitted with a heat shield, de-orbit motor...

    LOL. Looks like this company didn't shy away from getting a bit creative with the naming scheme, because of course a drone that proudly displays a "SEXBOMB" livery traveling at hypersonic speeds while the surface temperature of its skin raises sounds sexy :D...

    Rolling Airframe Missile launcher concepts

    Thread for unbuilt RAM launcher concepts (aside from the standard Mk 49 and SeaRAM launchers) This morning, I reminded myself of an unusual concept to mount Rolling Airframe Missile launchers on the sides of a Mark 45 gun turret. The idea was to use the gun drives and gun fire control to point...
