A cross-post from the Building thread for Squshy and RC fans...

My old homie, Alan Cocconi, kind of started the whole drone thang way back
when.  He would go park right at the Edwards AFB fence and drive the MP's
wild flying his drones around the base.  He never got caught. Then he and
David Sivertsen created the guts of the Tesla.  Now Alan is pushing the
boundaries of flight with his near supersonic RC sailplanes. I'll post a
vid in a bit. BTW, these 'little' sailplanes cost 5 figures!

Today, people on two continents mourn the death of 92-year-old William Overstreet Jr. He was a resident of Roanoke, Virginia, a retired accountant, and like many men from his generation, a veteran of World War II. And in the spring of 1944, Overstreet did something people in France and the U.S. still talk about.

TGT, I just came across an article about Nalls and his Harrier restoration in an old ('10?) edition of Sport Aviation (EAA pub). He had volunteers from a nearby USMC base to help with his modifications and rebuild, I think.

A proud aircraft, in my eyes as pretty as a Warthog (which may not be saying much).

The shop is right about where he finishes his turn onto final.

Glad I was out of the office that day!

Can't claim credit for shooting it, just found it.

I was at a job site in Big Bear all day.

When ever there's a fire and they use Santa Fe dam for reloading their patter puts them right over the top of the office. It's exciting the first time, but gets real annoying fast.

Wingsuit fatality in the Grand Canyon

10:30 a.m update: Coconino County Sheriff's Office officials confirm that a Search and Rescue team has reached the body and confirmed the BASE jumper is dead. A crew is transporting the body from the Confluence of the Little Colorado and Colorado Rivers to the rim, where the body will be picked up by medical examiners. Authorities are now working to notify the BASE jumper's next of kin.

9:30 a.m update:

Search and Rescue teams are trying to locate a missing BASE jumper in the Little Colorado River Gorge near Grand Canyon National Park. A friend of the missing jumper said the man leapt from a cliff on the north side of the canyon yesterday afternoon wearing a red wingsuit, according to the Coconino County Sheriff's Office.

After the friend didn't hear from the BASE jumper, he looked into the canyon and saw a red spot that he believed to be his friend's body.

The National Park Service called Coconino County Search and Rescue at about 6 p.m. Friday. A Department of Public Safety helicopter was involved in another operation at the time and unavailable to assist in the search.

However, a Guardian Air helicopter flew into the canyon at about 8 p.m. Friday, but was unable to locate the red spot.

Search and Rescue crews are currently prepping a short haul team to fly into the canyon and determine if there is a body.

A 37-year-old Norwegian wingsuit BASE jumper was killed at the Little Colorado River Gorge in 2012 when a gust of wind blew him into a cliff.
