So he probably flew over where I was born (born after the war of course) and Tim my son has actually built radio control aircraft for some years now and one was a P-51 Though these days being married has cramped his style if you know what I mean because building them these days is VERY expensive.

Those and the Spitfire both beautiful aircraft and we used to go to a place called Temora out here to watch the old war birds fly - and there is nothing like hearing that Merlin V12 roaring past eh?

You really have got to luv the noise, the old birds make.
Live in Southampton - home of the Spitfire.
So regularly see the Battle of Britain flight
Spitfire Hurricane Lancaster.

But they dont hold a candle to the Vulcan, its magnificent, shame its not flying any more

Yep I agree Roy that place at Temora I mentioned they have a restored Spitty and they do low passes at the shows and the sound is just something else even though they do not do it at full throttle because of not wanting to damage the plane in any way but still that V12

Even some of the radial engined ones sound so stunning too and once saw a Meteor and it was just the ducks guts as my son would say LOL!!

This is the place we like to go when we can Temora Aviation Museum :: Temora Aviation Museum Aviation Newsletter

NASA will hold a news conference at 1 p.m. EST Wednesday, Feb. 22, to present new findings on planets that orbit stars other than our sun, known as exoplanets. The event will air live on NASA Television and the agency's website.

Details of these findings are embargoed by the journal Nature until 1 p.m.

Limited seating is available in the NASA TV studio for media who would like to attend in person at the agency’s Headquarters at 300 E Street SW in Washington.

To attend in person or participate by phone, media must send an email with their name, affiliation and telephone number to Dwayne Brown at dwayne.c.brown@nasa.gov by noon Feb. 22.

Media and the public also may ask questions during the briefing on Twitter using the hashtag #askNASA.

The briefing participants are:

· Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington

· Michael Gillon, astronomer at the University of Liege in Belgium

· Sean Carey, manager of NASA's Spitzer Science Center at Caltech/IPAC, Pasadena, California

· Nikole Lewis, astronomer at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore

Now I have been looking for a program for a long time that shows the solar system in motion and I can only find views of it at rest as it were so does anyone know of such a program please?

I also had a wallpaper on my android devices that showed a view of the Earth in real time and the view was of Australia as viewed from an overhead satellite so does anyone have any idea of where I can find that wallpaper?

Ah well it happens when you are bit too gung ho without thinking about your age and it isn't like it was when one was forty odd. Advice is mate make sure you take care with what you do and how you do it as you get older because a broken leg at my age is no darn fun.
