     The outhouse-sized building is the lone outcropping in the bare, one hundred yard square grass field.
     As I crested the roof on the ladder I peered over the top and she wasn't there. She was inside the building with Elvis. I would like to say, "I knew that," but the open-air slot on the flat roof of the fifteen-foot tall concrete telephone junction bunker turned out to be two feet by three feet. I had via radio slipped my ParkZone Micro P-51 with twin Brownings cleanly into this internal concrete "carrier" envelope and stuck a smooth belly landing on the eight foot square concrete subfloor.Not even an abrasion mark on the belly. Li-Po's charging okay right now.
     I am one lucky guy. And I must be afflicted with honesty or I would have said, "I meant to do that."
The good Lord knows this first bird is special to me. He is my Shepherd, the Good Shepherd, and I am not taken out of his hand. Nor is my bird.

Dedicated to Real and "Remote" Pilots in Uniform

Remember this: there is a MAN piloting that craft!

"It's not a DRONE, Mr. President!"
"It is a Remotely PILOTED Aircraft/Vehicle!!!"

Pilots, I got your back, as I am your cycloptic brother.

The Jet Wars

A link to other entries of mine: 

Yes. I am Saburo Sakai, the one-eyed pilot.......


The male Boat-tailed Grackle, an obnoxious, unctiously oily bird of non-native origins, eyed my ParkZone Ember 2 Radio Controlled aircraft flying about aimiably in the soft blue sky and, apparently, decided the competition for airspace was just too much.....
The horror.....
Thus began my quest for defensive armaments.

Operation Free Flight

The great John Browning, inventor of the heralded 1911 model .45 caliber automatic pistol, probably could not have imagined his equally wonderful M-2, .50 caliber machine gun would be shrunk down by a factor of two hundred times and installed under the wings of a ParkZone Ultra Micro P-51 to fight for the Free Skies of America against the Evil Ones.
    But I hope he is pleased.
"I'm intrigued. Tell me more!"
Oh, I will......I will.
The question is: will we be free to fly the skies of America in little remotely piloted aircraft? Will we be free to write and read about fighting "imagined" nefarious enemies of freedom with these lovely little symbols of American Liberty?

Stay posted, my friends, stay posted!
