The DC-3 Story and a Bonus Video . . .

If YOU had to choose one airplane that changed the concept of travel more than any other – made transcontinental travel possible in hours – not weeks or months, or less than one hundred years before a year or longer .- the DC-3 “got the party started“. . .

Now today – on the average day /average hour there are on the average 40,000 people in the air – 24 / 7 365 days a year . . .

And a bonus – sit back – relax – and enjoy your Chicago to New York Transcontinental flight . . .

Never had the pleasure of flying on a DC-3 but I flew multiple times on Fairchild F-27‘s ( and if you think about it is just a modern DC-3 ) with Ozark Airlines – which those trips are worth another post – might put that one together – Ozark Airlines was a “different” experience, a real shoestring operation . . .

Kissing Crane Independence Day 2022 Commemorative Trapper

No disappointment here folks – Kissing Crane just keeps on with it . . .

Yeah – I know – another Kissing Crane – LOL!

A look at the “front” side of the scales . . .

And the “back” side . . . ( the only blemish spot on the whole knife – the red stripe )

The main blade etching . . .

Spey blade etching . . .

The blade centering is very good . . .

The scales – spacers and spring(s) alignment ? – good as anything out there!

I’ll carry the little darling come Monday the 4th – then lovingly clean it and into a felt lined drawer with it . . .

Have you trotted over to BUDK and gotten yours yet? – If not – WHY NOT?? At $36.99 it a great knife at a great price!

What’s in your pocket?

In case you are of little faith – here she sits waiting for Monday the 4th . . .

Friday Music – Eclectic is putting it Mildly!

This one is gonna go ditch to ditch – Have a run at some of the stuff that plays in my head over the course of a week –

Hope your seat back is upright and the belt is fastened – You were warned . . . .

Remember watching the sun rise over south central Kansas listening to this on a 9 transistor pocket radio tuned to KLEO Wichita – the sun coming up looked just like a BIG red rubber ball – Those Were The Days

These next one is my favorite by “The Cyrkle” – and one of my favorite songs . . .

This has been a small sample of the sound track in my head – plays in stereo any time I roll the tape – and a lot of the time whether I play the loop or not – LMAO! . . .

And never a week goes by without this . . .

Shockwave Shadows in Ultra Slow Motion (Bullet Schlieren)

Watch until the end – and you will see the bullet is long gone before the handgun ever starts to recoil – it really isn’t the guns fault – all the things you are doing prior to the onset of recoil induced movement – flinch – grip squeeze – and trigger press are the real culprits involved in inaccurate shooting . . .
