    Here is a hint to do before shipping. Do not pull the paper sticky cover off and "seal" the box. It is easier to just cut the tape with a razor knife and open it. I will mark that as TOP when I send it. Bottom is sealed with the sticky.

    Off we go,
    Into the wild blue yonder,
    Riding high into the sun... (SUN) not sky!

    Anybody know this song?

    I don't believe the original box will make it all around ( they get too weak ) - I may have to go to a lrg box but we can always reduce back to a medium - let the games begin - incoming pic's only - no out going - keep the mystery a mystery !

    Good work Mr. Yeats !

    Lyrics to USAF theme song...New verses have since been added, these lines are the original.


    Off we go into the wild blue yonder,
    Climbing high into the sun;
    Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
    At ‘em now, Give 'em the gun!
    Down we dive, spouting our flame from under,
    Off with one helluva roar!
    We live in fame or go down in flame. Hey!
    Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force!

    My favorite jet
    F86 Sabre

    Yes, we bring the napalm, the tank busters, and keep those pesky Migs away from our grunts.

    A maintenance shop I worked in at Ft Bragg was just across the road from Pope AFB runways. A-10s, F-16s, C-130s, C-141s, C-5s took off all day overhead, literally shaking the shop. The C-17 was being tested for paratrooper modifications at that time.

    The A10 Warthog--proof that with a big enough engine, even a brick can fly.

    The Box arrived safe and sound on Wed. I took a peek on thursday after work - Mr. Yeats really started this one right I tell you !

    Out of all the things in it - there are only 4 I can't use ? ( uncanny )

    I'm making some tough decisions and getting ready to say good bye ! Kudos Mr. Yeats ! !

    @dbrian66 send me your ship to in a PM !

    Ken

    ps - Yeats how did you get that tele deluxe in a medium flat rate box ? GENIUS !
