I’ve previously written about the worlds largest man-made explosion, the 50 megaton Tsar Bomba, here, here and here.  Now the  Russians have released footage of the explosion and the preparations leading up to it.  Amazing.

More on the use of F-117s as Aggressor aircraft at Red Flag.  Looks like there are more 117s flying than previously thought.

Boy, 2020 just doesn’t give up.  A war in the Taiwan straight is just what we need.
