September 11: FAA Closure of US Airspace
SubmittedAlthough this animation was published 10 years ago, it gives an excellent visual of our airspace as things shut down on 9/11/01.

Cold War re-lived (MITO exercise)
SubmittedB-52G's and KC-135A's from the 416 BMW, at the former Griffiss AFB, NY. I might have lost track but I think I counted (9) B52s and (5) KC135s taking off at MITO (Minimum Interval Takeoff) in the early- to mid-80s. Words usually fail when I try to explain to my kids what the Cold War was about, but I think this exercise puts a pretty good visual to it! Quite a sight to see...! Be sure to read the comments for perspective from a whole bunch of 'old dogs'. (www.youtube.com) More...
