Another weather story... Since there's a big storm system coming my way this weekend, I thought I'd share another one of those classic stories about weather related phenomena, and somehow restrain myself from mentioning Huntsville meteorologist Dan Satterfield. "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!" Sorry...

It's safe to say there are more than three of you. After Space Camp, I was the Deputy Director of a Challenger Learning Center, and I have since moved to the Executive Director of a Challenger Learning Center that just opened a year ago. A lot of former Campers retain positions in informal space sci...

I heard that cadence first in 1989 in ROTC (dating myself) - so yes, Gordo simply brought it into context at AC - including mentioning it on a LIVE radio program. For those reasons, it would be a top AC song - not the number one mind you, but up there somewhere.

I was thinking of Napalm, that and Gordo broadcasting it on the radio...92J your warmonging station.

That would be a Top Five lister in Songs Of Aviation Challenge.

Actually, I think Gordo sang the first Aviation Challenge song way back when - I'm not sure if it can be printed here.

After being here for about nine months now, Commander Wosje has seen what Las Vegas has to offer, but that aside, he said that being able to suit up and fly the Raptor is by far his favorite thing to do. Spanky, send this guy a case of our favorite - "the only thing you'll ever need.......&quo...

"Puff The Magic Dragon?" Oh come on, despite the fact I don't think I can carry a tune in a bucket, I'd at least sing something a little better than that in the shower...

And btw, all this talk of you "Pulling Off Something" has me insanely scared, and I'm 600 miles away....

A gun on the Osprey would easily tip it over the edge in being an aerodynamically unsound, mechanically challenged, $30,000,000 paperweight. Just retire the stupid thing to the field at Wright-Patterson's museum and bring back the Stinkbug!

I don't think it's a matter of love, especially now that the programs are tied so much together. Whether it be a matter of respect, or some shyness about the original intent of the subject matter with a nation that's been at war for several years now, I can't say. AC is a special place for those of ...

AC started in 1990, so it's technically going to be 17 this year. As to whether or not there will be an anniversary, I can't say. It would be nice, but I have my own personal doubts about it.
