Dec 17, 1903

December 18, 2015

On this day in 1903 at Kill Devil Hills in Kitty Hawk, N.C., two bicycle makers from Ohio, the Wright brothers, ushered in the age of controlled, powered flight.  They developed the three axis control system making controlled flight possible.  Orville piloted the first flight that lasted 12 seconds and flew a distance of 120 feet.

Powerful Vietnam Photos

June 14, 2013

These are very powerful shots taken by award winning German photographer Horst Faas dedicated to Vietnam combat veterans. For those who did not serve in Vietnam, it might give you a little insight to this period in our nations history. The comments at the end are also very interesting.

Original Photographs from the Civil War Era

April 4, 2013

Please read the instructions before viewing…These pictures are very profound. It is fortunate that these photos have survived. Most probably a million wet plate photos were made during the civil war on glass plate.Popular during the war, they lost their appeal afterwards and so many were sold for the glass. Many were used in green houses. Over the years the sun caused the images to disappear.

These are pretty amazing considering they were taken over 150 years ago: A compendium of photos from era of the War Between the States. Run the cursor over the photograph and the picture caption will pop up. Click photo to enlarge and read the rest of the caption.

5 Carriers Docked in Norfolk, VA

March 5, 2013

Carriers5

What is wrong with this picture?

The picture is of the five nuclear carriers… Just like Battleship Row, Pearl Harbor,December 7, 1941.

This picture was taken the other day in Norfolk. The Obama Administration ordered 5 nuclear carriers into harbor for “routine” (?) inspections. Heads of the Navy were flabbergasted by the directive.

NORFOLK, VA. (February 8, 2013). The first time since WWII that five U.S. aircraft carriers were docked together.

USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), USS Enterprise (CVN 65), USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), and USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) are all in port at Naval Station Norfolk, Va., the world’s largest naval station.

Sources stated that this breached a long standing military protocol in the Navy meant to avoid massive enemy strike on major US forces. (U.S. Navy photo by Chief Mass Communication Specialist Ryan J. Courtade/Released)
