    If you ever find yourselves in Brussels with some time, head to the Royal Museum of the Armed Forces. Lots of cool stuff and lots of PLANES!

    Went to the Aviator Cafe in Hesperia (L26) for breakfast, and to get out of the haze in the basin. Later, overflew So Cal Logistics (KVCV) where they have 737 Max jetliners stacked like cordwood. The group on the ramp at left are all Southwest jets.

    Great restaurant, though the airport's runway is in pretty sad shape, with cracks, weeds, etc. The waitress told me they're opening another restaurant at Apple Valley (KAPV) so that's encouraging. Feels good to support the local business.

    I always forget to take pics, so here’s a couple of quick ones on the way back to the airport.

    Airport cafes can be some of the most comforting places to visit, especially if the food is good!

    Snapped this on the ground on the morning of July 4th, 2004 at Dodge City (DDC). I was trying to get to North Carolina, but frustrated by a solid line of thunderstorms from the gulf coast all the way to Canada. Only ended up getting to St. Louis that day. Anyway, I was in the FBO pulling my hair out over the weather, and this older guy comes in wearing coveralls and gets on the phone to Flight Service. In a gruff voice, he sort of demands his weather from the FSS. I didn't think too much of it at the time.

    A little later, talking to the guy at the FBO counter, I find out that it was Frank Borman -- the astronaut. The guy noticed his name on the credit card I think and asked him if he was like, an astronaut and had been to the moon. The reply was apparently something to the effect of "yeah, that's something I used to do."

    That day, Borman was flying his P-51 back home to Las Cruces from an airshow somewhere in the midwest. He gave us a nice flyover departing the airport.

    American Airlines airplane taking on a load of Atlas beer, circa 1933, location unknown, but probably somewhere in the Chicago area for two reasons: (1) Atlas Brewing was based in Chicago and (2) I found the photo in the "Forgotten Chicago" group on Facebook.

    Highly recommend 5d5 for easy but rustic camp experience. Easily will accommodate those of you with the third wHeel on the wrong end too! Seen coyote and other wildlife. Bikes available. So peaceful and quiet and stars were mind blowing with no real close light pollution. 2AB809E9-8327-4F59-9A10-0991012CCBC6.jpeg 0A03CB13-D46C-4C78-AC82-4C85C0911C7B.jpeg 966EF010-2D50-488C-A590-3C6586A7ED56.jpeg 150ED1C1-0ADD-42CA-9CAB-0BC597BDB428.jpeg

    A couple of weeks ago I was flying back to the Phoenix area from Tucson. My passenger (our own esteemed @Mtns2Skies) said, "What are those big crosses down there in the desert?"

    I remembered reading about the hundreds of giant concrete Maltese-cross-shaped markers arranged in a grid pattern over a huge area south of Casa Grande AZ. They were put there in the 1960s to calibrate the cameras of spy satellites.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corona_Satellite_Calibration_Targets

    https://www.npr.org/2016/10/11/4965...ry-put-to-rest-why-are-there-xs-in-the-desert

    This diagram shows the arrangement of the markers; the ones still there (blue), those that are damaged (yellow) and those that are missing (red).

    [​IMG]


    I took off early this morning on a mission to photograph a few of them:

    Mission accomplished, I landed for (cheap) fuel at Gila Bend Muni (E63). There, another Cold War relic serves as a gate guardian:
