These make me squee. Having these made was the number one reason for going to the WDW Star Wars Weekend earlier this year, and they came out better than I'd hoped. I especially love the pilot.

I think I won't be ordering the Shepherd's Pie. I prefer my ingredients without quotation marks. 😉 "Beef" indeed.

The F-35B conducts its first 'ski-jump' launch.  This is primarily to support operation from British & Italian aircraft carriers in STOVL operations.  The use of a ski-jump ramp allows for take offs at higher weights compared to flat-deck STOVL operations (as the USMC plans to use) as the ramp imparts an upward trajectory at the critical moment of takeoff.  

I still think the Marines/Navy should consider adding the ramps to ships intended for F-35B operations.  The counter-argument is that you lose a spot for helicopter operations, but other countries seem to be doing just fine.  (Several countries operate, or operated, ski-jump carriers for STOVL Harrier operations, and even STOBAR MiG-29K & Su-33 operations.)

I have to admit I wasn't positive about a couple of my answers but I went with the one that felt right. I did get them all right.

(I would like to think that I wouldn't do the same, but it is such an instinctive response, that I might have answered automatically. Still, hehehehe!)

The first B767-2C is flying with a refueling boom and Wing Aerial Refueling Pods (WARPs) - but note I said B767-2C and not KC-46.  This is not a tanker, it is an aerodynamic test aircraft.  The refueling gear is not functional, it is just there to test the impact on the aircraft's aerodynamics.

The second B767-2C airframe will be the first to be a true KC-46A, with active refueling gear.  It is nearing completion and is expected to fly this summer.

A geek named MegaZone.
Introduction
I have a mononym.  My full legal name is MegaZone, which I use as a last name.  I have no first name, so I use Mr as a placeholder when one is required.

Let's see if Google suspends my account for not having a 'normal' name.  (They did, but I got it back.)

This place has just opened - a soft-open before the official grand opening - and I've been in twice. The food is fantastic and a very welcome break from the fast food places in the neighborhood. And they have a number of great vegetarian options - which is nice as my wife is vegetarian. In addition to the great food the staff are all friendly and personable and were happy to talk with new customers and accept feedback as they work out the 'just opened' kinks. This is definitely a place I'll be returning to.

I've been purchasing furniture for several years and I will continue to do so. The experience is great - no pressure from sales people, great selection, good prices, and fantastic service. A great tip is to make major purchases during one of their promotions, like the Red Sox promo in the spring. Then use the credit later in the year to make a smaller purchase. More bang for your buck!
