News reports indicate that Argentina is interested in buying Pakistani/Chinese JF-17s.  This would certainly be an interesting development.

SpaceX launches, orbits and recovers the first all civilian space crew.  This is big.  Also, nice to see St. Jude getting some donations from the flight.  I’ll say it again. Thanks God for Elon Musk!

Example 1

Example 2

Now, none of this is stuff the US hasn’t done, but the Chinese have already caught up technologically in a lot of areas.  There is no reason to believe that they won’t catch up in space, and quickly.

Good to see the F-117 getting used in this manner.  I always thought we “retired” them too quickly.

This is the kit that Mike mentioned on the episode of The Scale Model Podcast that he and I were recently on.  I agree with Mike, this is a must have.
