Oh shoot. It was rainy and overcast in Aleknagik when we were  there otherwise we'd have been able to see the results of this.

 

(Or so I've been told by Mrs. The Captain's dad who grew up there watching this phenomenon).

Swiss ALR Piranha, there are only models of it since the Swiss gov. had no interest in it.
This was, AFAIK the last developement work on an indigenous swiss fighter jet.

Was running some errands today different than the usual, came across this particular B-29.  Photo is pulled from google and not what I took since I wasn't able to actually get out and look at the thing.  Did get to drive pretty close to it, but that's about it.  There's also what I assume is an AH-1F a mile from my campus, I should check it out sometime when I move back.  Funnily enough, it's not listed on wikipedia's list on AH-1s on display.

303d_Bombardment_Group_358th_Bombardment

 

B-17F "Hell's Angels" of 303rd Bombardment Group (Heavy), 358th Bomb Squadron. Hell's Angels was the first 8th AAF B-17 to complete 25 missions. The aircraft later went on to fly a staggering 48 missions, again being the first 8th AAF B-17 to do so. Interesting to note, during the filming of William Wyler's 'Memphis Belle', a second filming team was assigned to "Hell's Angels" in the event "Memphis Belle" was shot down.

Is that the one were the dumb Nazi pilot got lost and landed in England?

Which of the bunch of dumb Nazi pilots do you mean? There's multiple instances of Nazi pilots getting lost and landing at British airbases.

      Topic to post photo and video of various AFV seen through a thermal camera.
      I know that we won't be able to make any comparisons on the thermal signature of various tank without knowing which camera took the image and that the same areas (tracks, engine, sometimes exhaust) will always be the ones to show up but anyway:
       
      Just to see them under a different light than usual (pardon the terrible pun^^)

      So in light of our new, beloved, members, a small explanation on how to rehost pictures on Imgur and post them here.
       
      While different forums have different methods of hosting and showing pictures, I'm going to use Sturgeon's House as an example. And because I'm lazy, I'm going to use the Syrian Conflict topic. 
       
       
      There are two ways of saving pictures on SH. One is to right-click on the picture and selecting "Save image as..." (actual text may vary depending on the browser used):

       
       
      The other option is to left-click the picture and click on "Save" at the bottom right of the picture.

       
       
      This will open the picture in a new tab:

       
       
       
      Here you can right-click the image and click on "Save Image As...". After doing so you can choose where to save the picture to. I use a seperate folder for the things I want to rehost. But you can save them wherever you want.

      ("Geupload" means "Uploaded", which is where I move the pictures after I've rehosted them)
       
      After saving the picture(s) on your computer, you should go to www.imgur.com. You can choose to make an Imgur account, but you don't have to. Pictures you upload while logged in will be saved on your account so you basically have a library of the pictures you uploaded.
       
      At the top of the page you will see this:

      Click on "upload images".
       
      The following pop-up appears.

      As you can see you can enter image URLs directly, but I don't know how well that works with URLs from forum attachments. Some forums only show attachments when logged in, or have some other bullshit thing where you can't link directly to the attachment.
       
      Click "browse your computer". It opens the file browser at the last location you've uploaded something from. Which in my case is the location where I saved the picture.

      Select one or more pictures and click "Open". You can select as many pictures as you want.
       
      The pop-up from earlier changes to this:

      You can choose to share the pictures with the community, but that means that everybody who browses Imgur can see the pictures you upload. They are allowed to vote and comment on your pictures. Sharing basically equals people being mean about whatever you upload. I advise against sharing. If you don't share, only people with the direct link can see the picture.
      If you want to upload more than one picture, you can choose to put them in an album. I generally don't and just smash "Start Upload".
       
      The pop-up disappears and a new one appears:

      If you upload a bunch of pictures together or in quick succession, you will get a Captcha question you have to answer before the uploads will continue. This can happen in the middle of an upload, so keep an eye on that.
       
      When it's done uploading the page will change to this:

      If you have uploaded more than one picture, they will appear as a list of pictures.
       
      Right-click the image and select "Copy Image".

       
      Go back to your post on SH (or go back to it if you already started one). You can either right-click and select "Paste" or click inside the text box and press Ctrl+V to paste the picture.

       
      The picture will then appear in the text box.
       
      Add some text, or just click "Add Reply" or in case you're making a new topic, click "Post New Topic".
       
       
      This is the way I rehost pictures on Imgur, and since I'm me, there are probably easier ways to do it.
