Another new member from the Midwest USA. Have been an aviation and secret project buff since the 80s.
I attended aviation maint school but currently work in wireless as an engineering manager.

As a side note I actually found this site when searching for old copies if International Combat Arms magazine from the 80s.
Ha! I have a collection of those things I bought off ebay years ago. I'd originally bought issues when they were published but they got lost along the way. One day I was hunting for the latest issue in the magazine section of a local grocery store and spotted a book with an interesting white cover named, "The Hunt for the Red October" and bought it on impulse. At the time nobody had heard of Tom Clancy. Brings back memories. :)

Hello All. I'm a US Navy vet. My rate was Aviation Fire Control Technician 1st Class. I worked on the A-6E TRAM/STARM Intruder and spent three years as a flight deck troubleshooter for VA-115. We were forward deployed to Japan and the only squadron in WESTPAC to include STARM Intruders. During my tour we had two successful AGM-78 MISSILE-EX launches.

I'm a researcher and author of rocket and missile scale articles and editor of my sections newsletter, Total Impulse. I found this site while researching the Bendix/Grumman AAM-N-10 Eagle air-to-air missile. There's great material here and appreciate the members that contributed information on it.

Hey there! My name is Jack, from Georgia (USA). I'm an Aviation Enthusiast, and particular fan of Seaplanes of all sorts of types
I've come here to potentially educate myself a little more, as well as fill in gaps in my knowledge where I'm left wondering about certain types (as you may see in my upcoming post SoonTM)
I enjoy flight simulators and have restarted my interest in the model-making hobby as of 2020
I plan on entering the aviation industry as a mechanic or engineer one day once I am older, and later potentially join a museum's restoration team

Nice. Here's the same RAE design with various armament options from AVIA 06 19287 (Defence against Bombers by Mach 2 fighters). And welcome :)

Hello dears,

My name is Sebastian, I live in Argentina and I'm 45 years old. I am very interested in the secret projects of the US and the USSR during the cold war, especially the planes that never were.

I hope to contribute with information on the many aeronautical projects of my country that failed to materialize

Greetings,
I am happy to now be a part of this group. I look forward to conversations and the sharing of ideas and gaining insights to lost projects, good or bad. I am a 20+ navy vet with a long history in weapons, tactics, and study. I am finishing up my masters in this field. You will likely be shocked to find that I am an avid building of military models and military researcher.
Again, I look forward to my experiences here.

Hello!

I've stumbled upon this group while looking into some post WW2 era planes. I look forward to learning about lesser known projects and its related discussions. While I don't have any past service history, I do take a lot of time studying and reading upon materials with great interest.

To put it short, I am simply an enthusiast from South Korea looking to learn more about past projects that never ended up being popular or known.

Wow. I'm glad somebody reads it. No secret projects in my writing, I'm afraid. Only obscure ones.
