Phantastic location and lots of fascinating images, Josef!

The story of the B36 is quite thrilling - I now have learnt about the German Amerikabomber program. Fortunately the Portuguese leased the Azores' airstrip to the British. But this definitely reminds me to view the the most recent season of "The Man in the High-Castle".

And I didn't expect that foreigners are allowed to visit a US Air Base.

TFS!

Harald thanks. I have one: you won't believe, a German WWll plane that is probably the prototype of every modern one of its type flying today. In its first iteration it was a fabric glider
Me 323 Gigant

The Amerikabomber if they built it and turned it 180, they may not have lost the war. The one plane Germany didn't have was the long distance heavy bomber, if they flew it into the Soviet Union over the Ural's and bombed the tank factories, the Soviets probably could never have counter attacked

I still don't understand how a country that had the "swallow" and "Butcherbird" IMO the finest fighter of the war, along w the V1 & V2 could lose a war

I have no idea of."The Man in the High-Castle".
Like me, foreigners were thoroughly background checked, never near sensitive areas and all the military were "well well" armed
Thank you; Harald

"The Man in the High-Castle" is an Amazon Prime TV series (I know that there are some fans on this forum), based on a Philip K. Dick story. Germany and Japan have won WWII - have a look how the US would like after this had happened (I love the view of the Time Sq. in New York with all those BMW Isettas - hilarious).

Get a first impression here.

Edit: The series won 4 Emmys in 2016 (among them one for the main title design - you will be thrilled when you see it) and 3 Emmys in 2017.

I've missed that one completely (I'm not a Prime subscriber) but it's something that looks both interesting and very highly crafted in terms of the way it's been shot.

Philip K. Dick is a very creative writer so it's success shouldn't be a surprise to anyone (Blade Runner was based on his book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep). There are some truly creative and clever people out there - and on here as well!

Best regards, Neil.

I loved "The Blade Runner" I saw it new and it has stayed w me since. In a large part the synchronizing of the great sound track w the movie. It was kind of scary for painting such a Grimm picture of the future. I am always surprised how fast that future has came to pass and how prescient it was. Its possible to see many of the movies scenes, especially the street scenes all over San Francisco today.

Folks pls forgive me for this far off topic comment, but it does relate to the last 2 posts above
I was astonished when my above opining about what has come to pass materialized in this NY daily newspaper a week later, (is anyone here connected to this paper?) "just kidding" ha ha!
I was surprised that others saw what I saw and came to the same opinions
this is the article, in their tech section:

https://nypost.com/2019/02/02/how-blade-runner-and-the-running-man-predicted-our-lives-decades-ago/

I will post another plane just to get back on topic, probably a B52 or the B47 and make some hopefully relevant comments about it

Thanks for viewing all comments are welcome

Great photos... you have inspired me to plan a first visit to our local Aviation Museum. Now, having looked it up, it seems bigger than I had imagined. Should be fun whenever I get around to it.

BC Aviation Museum

Cheers! I hope to do this very soon!
