Maybe that's smoke from burning Lithium batteries.

I was at an Air Force base in Texas waiting on a C-130 to arrive for an airborne training operation. NASA's 747 with the piggybacked Space Shuttle was just sitting there on the tarmac, about a hundred yards away, apparently there for refueling. I walked right up to it and took a good look around it. Granted, I was in field uniform wearing jungle fatigues and a green beret; but, I don't think something like that could be done today without some armed security force intervening.

Unbeknownst to you, they were watching and had the sterilization ray trained on you the whole time. Have you fathered any kids since then?

Nonsense, anybody can see the prop was all wonky and kept throwing blades off during the flight, dozens of them.

B-1 Lancer

Watch at about the 2:05 mark, something goes floating across the screen on a parachute. Is this in the air (real?), or, is it superimposed on the vid? And wtf is it?



Better bigger, of course.

Perhaps the Paradigm Acrobatic Team was airborne at the time, getting ready for; or, returning from a performance.

Up until the 90's, my southern KC suburb town of Grandview, MO, was home to an air force base, Richards Gebaur. Their annual free airshow drew upwards of 350 to 400 thousand souls each year over the course of the weekend. I saw some amazing stuff there over the years, not to mention the stuff I saw flying in and out of there during the decades I lived there. However, bar none, the coolest thing was the Monday morning I went out to the patio surrounding the airport tower (no security in those days) and watched the planes departing for their home bases.

The star of *this* show was the B1-B. It made a maximum effort takeoff, quickly climbed to about 3000', then flew South a bit, making a wide turn, and returning to the North end of the base. At that point, wings now swung fully back, it headed back toward the flightline, descended to about 250' off the runway, and just as it was aligned with the tower (where about 100 people were now gathered and being informed by the ATC over the PA what each plane was and what they were doing as they left), the pilot kicked in the afterburners, stood this aircraft on its ass, and disappeared into a dot into the sky faster than you can say "holy shit!". It was impressive on every possible level, and something I'll never forget. The noise was unbelievable, and seeing this rather large aircraft performing more like a nimble fighter than a lumbering bomber was quite the eye opener.
