Great pictures, they may have a lot of power but you have to fell sorry for the people who crew subs.
It can't be nice being stuffed in what is basically a little tube underwater for months at a time, no matter what they say.

Imagine what it will be like going to Mars Shiney? And it won't be in an 18000 ton monster like this either.
Sucked into a jet engine and lived
The aircraft is a Grummen Intruder A6-E.
This has done the rounds over the years but it is still interesting to put it up.

P-51 Mustang. Best fighter of WW2
IN GOOD COMPANY
Here is a great shot to open this topic on the best fighter of World War 2.
An F-16 Fighting Falcon and a P-51 Mustang perform a fly past.
The first of the Mustangs to arrive in England.
This is how they looked before the bubble canopy was fitted.
This one is called "Princess Elizabeth".
And here comes a D model with the bubble cockpit.
This aircraft is called 'Crazyhorse".
The Mustang P-51 C roars by with it's Packard Merlin engine.
Another D model. Hell or bust taxis out
An F-15 does a fly by with two P-51s
And yes, I have it too. Here comes an F-22 with three P-51s
Notice the size of the F-22 in relation to the WW2 fighter. It is just about as big as a WW2 bomber.
A D model taxis with it's canopy open.
This is 'Diamond Back'.
Great photos mate
How do you like those F-22 shots?
