On the road

I had a hell of a time driving around in a Dodge Challenger 71" model with retired Airforce Cpt. Joe Kittinger. We went straight to Edwards Airforce Base, Ritchcrest and Palmdale. Finally we've met Bill Weaver who survived an accident with his SR-71 plane at the speed of mach 3.2!!!!! His engine quit at 78thousand feet! The plane stalled immediately, felt apart and he got ripped out of his plane and survived!.... Hard to believe!!

The whole trip was surrounded by the BBC. here are some impressions!!

...check out the map! This is the plan for the next couple day's

Me and Joe in the the Dodge, what a great colour!!

...arriving at Edwards AFB. We've seen launching an F16, F22 Raptor a B52 and an B2 Stealth Bomber!!! and talk and talk! Believe it or not, they never run out of film and they always have ONE more question??!!

...interviews with the BBC at Jawbone Canyon

... Time to chill and having a beer...

Day two, Breakfast @ Tiffany's!!

...arriving at Ridgecrest at 9 pm! Ridgecrest, has a population of 98 peole!!!
