Oldies but Goldies

Hi, my friends!


I just scanned these old photos.

They show my father in 2 of them, aged 21 in 1946.

The RAF controllers had just left and given the commands to french people.


At this time, General Charles de Gaulle made some visits to french airports to officialize young French freedom.

He used a C54, gift from President…

Welcome home, STS135 !

I was moved by this last shuttle landing.


Thanks to all ground crew, engineers and astronauts who made this possible.


Even if the actual Earth problems seem to be more urgent than Space conquest, the Future will give reason to these courageous beings who gave their lives for a number of them, to help men to go farther along.


Human Race's target is to go away and so it will be.


I love USA!

Want to be able to create your own Member Groups?

I am curious as to how many members would like the option of creating their own groups? If enough members would like this option I will add this as an option to the site. The only rule will be it must be aviation related. Looking forward to your input!
