Though some incredibly beautiful sights may be seen upon this earth, the most awesome are found in the heavens. As astonishing new non-copyrighted images (or copyrighted with proper rights included) are found, they will be posted here.

There was a time, back in 1956, when these were important to me. The following aircraft pictures were taken by me at Biggs AFB, Texas, when I was in the army stationed next door at Ft. Bliss. The B-36's were especially impressive - too bad none still exist in flying condition. The others are an B-47, F-86D, and RF-84F.
