So Putin said Russia Will Be World’s Largest Millitary Aircraft Maker 

Thanks to AmericaMDCCLXXVI for the video.

Last week I read a couple of  articles and Here, on the net about the Russian Government selling some 250 Sukhoi-30 Long Range Fighter Jets to the Iranian Government.  The SU- 30 is not even close to the best Jet Russia has to offer, we should be glad Russia did not sell them any of the SU-47’s, well it wasn’t reported in the news anyway, but who really knows what Russia is selling the Iranians?   The SU -47 is one wicked looking jet fighter.  It’s just comforting to know that The United States has had a forward swept wing jet since 1984, the U.S. X – 29 below and who knows what else our government has in the works to protect our great country.  Unfortunately, the reality is that even our own forward swept wing U.S. X -29 was based on a Jet from World War II, the Junkers Ju 287 which was a German Luftwaffe aircraft begun in early 1943 and had it’s test flight on August 16, 1944.  It was a sort of Frankenstein’s monster, pieced together from several diffent aircraft. Including the nose wheels from two B-24 Liberators, a fuselage of an He 177 and the tail was constructed of Ju 388 parts.  Even then, the Soviets were closer to that project than the Americans.  The Germans had made 17 test flights with the Ju 287 V1 before the allies overran the testing airfield and captured the V1 and the nearly complete V2, and who do you think flew the V2?  Correct, the Soviet Union made a test flight in 1947, and the V3 with improvements failed to get off the drawing board.  My point isn’t that because these jets have forward swept wings it somehow makes them any more lethal, but you have to admit it does make them look futuristic, even if the design does go all the way back to 1943.  Thanks to Realpolitik1776 for the video.

sharon-tate.jpgThese days when you talk about a sick cult leader, your mind, at least my mind automatically goes to President AhmaGenocide (Ahmadinejad) with his sick under developed brain and the Jihad movement that follow him.  He is not the demon I am talking about, the sicko I’m talking about had his so called family kill the beautiful young lady to the left.  Sharon Tate on this day August 9, 1969.

Sharon Marie Tate was born January 24, 1943.  She was a rising American actress and model, she played small roles on  television in the 1960’s, before starting her film career.  Sharon’s celebrity increased when she married film director Roman Polaski.  May Sharon rest in peace and God bring comfort to her family.  Although there are literally thousands of photos of Sharon, this one caught my eye as being very dreamy.

About the sick cult leader, his name is Charles Manson, and as Forest Gump would say, that’s all I have to say about that.
