100 years ago....can't even imagine where the next 100 years of flight will take us!

Here is a film clip from the Austrian national archives of the Wright
Brothers demonstrating their plane in Italy in 1909. What is even more fantastic is
there was an on-board camera on the Wright plane and the last part of this
film shows it. It's crystal clear. If you haven't seen it, you must see this
important film.

Wilbur Wright is at the controls on both of the flights. Scroll down to where it
says Start Movie.....

You need to read the Bible and it will tell you the world will never end.

He has bought the election with his "stimulus" for the welfare whores.

todays fighter aircraft can perform a hell of a lot better than they are "allowed" due to the fact that the human inside it cant take the G forces. It is said that the F22 could pull such tight manuvers taht it could kill the pilot. Now that were seeing more and more unmanned aircraft, removing the "human linitations" of these aircraft will allow then to do things never before seen in any aircraft. In the next 100 years, one thing is for sure, we wont be disappointed

We're not going to just shoot the sons-of-bitches, we're going to rip out their living guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks. Gen. George S. Patton
