Fly By1784 viewsTaken 1/1/05
To start off the 2005 Rose Parade, there was a beautiful flyby of the B-2A Bomber, accompanied by an F-15E Strike Eagle and an F-16C Fighting Falcon. In this view, as they depart into the sun, the F-15E is on the left and the F-16C is on the right. They flew along the parade route from West to East.

Survivor1774 viewsTaken 4/7/06
I believe this is a Yellow Canary. No fancy names. At any rate, he has survived the wrath of the Mongoose on Hawai'i. I really enjoyed all the different animals and birds that I saw on this trip. The warm weather wasn’t bad either.

1772 viewsThe radio looked so simple. No "bells and whistles". It must have been tough sending CW (morse code) while they were in flight. It was pretty bumpy.

Minotaur 41768 viewsSeptember 22, 2005 marked the first Vandenberg AFB dusk launch in nearly three years. The Minotaur booster Lifted off from south Vandenberg just after 19:24 PDT, the start of a 16-minute launch window.
This fourth photo gives you some perspective and an idea of how much this filled the sky. It was awesome. The Pasadena Courthouse and a large tree are visible in the foreground. Venus can still be seen about 10-15 degrees above the horizon.
