A-10 War Tent C-5 Shademaker

The US Air Force and Air National Guard are proud to be able to bring two of our most advanced aircraft to your air show today.

With your tax dollars in mind, the sophisticated C-5 Shademaker and A-10 War Tent were designed to provide maximum shade at minimum cost to you. They both employ highly classified Shade Generation Systems (SGS) to ensure that areas below the aircraft are fully shaded while areas above the aircraft reflect light back towards the enemy, rendering them both uncomfortably sweaty and temporarily blind.

We appreciate your continued support and we welcome you to visit these two great landmarks of modern aviation. God bless technology and God bless America.

Dick Winters dies; WWII hero commanded “Band of Brothers”

guillee:

Dick Winters, a decorated Army officer whose World War II service was recounted in the best-selling book and HBO mini-series “Band of Brothers,” died Jan. 2. News reports listed his age at 92.

[…] Mr. Winters, who separated from the Army at the rank of major, and his men fought together through D-Day and the Battle of the Bulge and later occupied Adolf Hitler’s mountainside retreat, the Eagle’s Nest, near Berchtesgaden.

A charismatic officer who led by example, Mr. Winters received the Distinguished Service Cross, the country’s second highest decoration for valor, while conducting combat operations on D-Day.

Rest in peace.

This man was true hero.
