A fascinating video clip has emerged of a Russian pilot (who was wearing a personal video recorder on his chest) ejecting from his damaged Sukhoi Su-25 ground attack aircraft, after it was hit by Ukrainian anti-aircraft fire. A tip o’ the hat to The Aviationist for publishing the video. All the action happens in… Continue reading So that’s what it’s like to eject from a burning aircraft…
A tweet from Ukraine shows a helicopter demonstrating what it means to fly “nap-of-the-earth” – over a highway, with vehicles. Click the image for a larger view. You’ll find a video clip of the incident in this tweet. I imagine that must have given a number of drivers a hair-raising experience . . .… Continue reading I’ve heard of “Nap-of-the-earth” flying, but “Nap-of-the-semi”???
The War Zone reports: The Russian military is reportedly set to receive some 800 refurbished and possibly upgraded T-62 tanks in the next three years to try to help make up for severe losses it has already sustained in its ongoing all-out invasion of Ukraine.

At this point in history, to destroy the possibility of re-opening Nord Stream 1 (NS1), and opening NS2, all but assures massive famines and detailed destruction of European economy that normally… Continue reading “The Death of Germany, and Europe”
Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson is perhaps the most famous of Britain’s “seadog Admirals”, earning a brilliant military reputation at battles such as Cape St. Vincent, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the Nile and Copenhagen, before his final victory – and death – at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

The headline to this post is, of course, from the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 24, verses 6-7. I’m not saying these are the end times. After all, people have said that since Christ walked the earth, ignoring his own declaration that “about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in… Continue reading “Wars and rumors of wars … nation will rise against nation”
I’m sure most readers are aware that the battleship USS Texas, launched in 1912 and a veteran of both World Wars, has just been moved to a floating dry dock for extensive repairs and rehabilitation. After 110 years since her launching, she needs them. The images below are circulating on social media.

Reams have already been written about the death of Mikhail Gorbachev, the last leader of the Soviet Union before its collapse.
