Stuff we write about/original material from the Round Six crew.
In May of 2007, the aerospace company I am employed with was contacted by Marvel and the U.S. Air Force to provide an aircraft to use as a backdrop during in-hangar filming shots. Marvel wanted to have two of the most modern aircraft available, so they chose the F-22 Raptor and the RQ-4A Global Hawk. They got that and more, and we got to hang out with Tony Stark.
The red truck approached and the girls knew it too and it seemed like they anticipated my disappointment. So instead I focused on how far we’ve come and how close we are and feel the pride and accomplishment in that. The timing slip confirmed the speed of 81.577mph, only 1.424mph off the record…
It may sound odd, but I had a 30 year period in my life where I was terrified to go on a road trip. Sure, I could do a “One Tank” Las Vegas or a Phoenix trip without any hesitation at all, but a LONG road trip? No way, dude. For that three decade segment of my life, I just flat refused to do it.
History always begs to be rewritten. Being a physics aficionado, the theory of multiple dimensions holds a special place in my brain. Couple that with a love for all things science fiction, and my synapses light up with boundless ideas and tales of the bizarre. Taking the above into consideration, behold the final iteration of the winningest Thunderbird on the opposite side of the space-time bubble.
Racing rivalries exist in all segments of motorsport, but none are as fabled as the one-hundred year old battle between Indian and Harley-Davidson. We briefly explore this ages-old rivalry, and the starts and stops which only served to fan the flames as time went by.
I was getting all four of my hairs cut, when the owner of the barber shop told me that she and her husband were watching the latest Transformers movie and she wanted to ask me a question. She said it looked like me in some of the extras footage and told her husband she thought it was. I kinda laughed a little and told her that yes it was me.
By midway down the runway, the drifting left and right has become so pronounced that every correction results in the airplane rolling up on a single wheel and nearly dragging the wing tip on the ground… I maintain “control” and continue my graceful ballet on the runway as Ed sits quietly confident in my ability to keep both of us alive.
June 2nd marked the 47th anniversary of the death of race car driver and designer Bruce McLaren. Although he was only with us for a mere 32 years, Bruce McLaren left an impression that is still felt to this day. Sure, many of us have heard the name McLaren and associate it with either an exotic automobile manufacturer or a hugely successful Formula 1 team, but how many of you REALLY know who Bruce McLaren was?
