We need more forgiveness in our lives.  We need to be more like the victim’s brother in this story. (BTW, good on the police for never giving up.)

Looks like a game of chicken with high powered weapons.  I haven’t had to drag this clip out in a while.

A new US fighter?

It appears the US has build and flown the prototype of its next generation fighter.  Frankly, I didn’t see this happening for another 5 years or so. (h/t to Jim Bates)

Wolfpack F-5E/F

While Dream Models has recently released an F-5, I am intrigued by the forthcoming kit from Wolfpack.  It appears they will be providing more options at a much cheaper price.

Glad we are doing this
