Talk about soccer stars being superheroes!

Seriously, these are pretty nice work. I'm getting excited for the World Cup. Who else is with me?

Coolest coffee table EVER.

Well, for an aviation junkie like me, at least...
 
These are pretty damn cool. I would love to have either of the two coffee tables in my house. More people/companies should upcycle old stuff like this. Way cool! I know this kind of stuff is probably of particular interest to +Fred Robel

This picture immediately brought a question to mind: if it's all about the journey and not the destination, then why take a Cirrus, which gets you there so much FASTER?

I am, of course, speaking as one who's never actually flown a Cirrus, so clearly I'm missing something. But it is a great irony of flying: we love spending time in airplanes, so we fly faster airplanes that we don't have to spend as much time in. If it's really about the journey, I'd always fly a Cub!
 
Here's what we believe as pilots.

Look at this!  All I did was suggest that the swirly looked like a bass clef, and the dude took care of it from there.  Pays to have a mechanic circled, huh?

Plus, Fred's just a really cool guy with really interesting posts.  If you haven't already, start following this guy.

Holy cow.  I think I just had the most amazing lunch ever.  A massive monte cristo on creme brulee french toast (that I managed to make it through MAYBE a quarter of), fresh potatoes and kale chips, fresh-made blueberry lemonade....

IN MANVILLE.

Whaaaaaat?

Dude!  How did I miss this?  Yesterday was the 110th anniversary!
 
Dec. 17, 1903 – The Wright brothers make the first controlled powered, heavier-than-air flight in the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina ... Wikipedia - "The Wright Flyer (often retrospectively referred to as Flyer I or 1903 Flyer) is the first successful powered aircraft, designed and built by the Wright brothers. They flew it four times on December 17, 1903, near Kill Devil Hills, about four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, U.S. Today, the airplane is exhibited in the National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C.

The U.S. Smithsonian Institution describes the aircraft as "...the first powered, heavier-than-air machine to achieve controlled, sustained flight with a pilot aboard." The Fédération Aéronautique Internationale described the 1903 flight during the 100th anniversary in 2003 as "the first sustained and controlled heavier-than-air powered flight." ..."
