    Yeah, back when Discovery and Science channels were more, um, scientific. (Seriously, how many dwarf lifestyle and ghost hunter shows do we need?)

    And MTV used to play music videos.
    I use to watch the History channel just about every night. There was almost always something interesting on. Now I don't watch any tv show regularly. Thankfully there are plenty of YouTube airplane videos.

    That painting was purchased from the EAA Aviation Foundation in 1994. There are 29 signatures, including Jimmy Doolittle, who passed in 1993.

    Speaking of Doolittle and Cole. Got both of them on the wall right next to one another.
