Cant imagine the Janet transits are that long either, likely less than 20 minutes tarmac to tarmac, so they likely have a small fuel fraction as well.

My shortest jet leg was Kauai to Hono,...

Deceiving size perhaps. I thought she looked small compared to the F/A-18F when passing gas in the air to air photos and thought a 15,000 pound offload would be tough to fit in that airframe, but...

Yes perfect sense, thank you. I had miss-remembered the ferry flight was from Ascension to HERMES (not Conveyor) - quite an adventure!

EFJ, any comments on flying the GR3 with the big ferry tanks? Understand they made handling/CoG a bit of a challenge. Did you make the long flight to Atlantic Conveyor with them?

Can anyone comment on the doors on RAF CH-47 "BN"? I seem to recall BN touching a river or stream and jettisoned her pilot and co-pilot doors. Were the doors liberated from one of the Argentine...

Looks like the canopy did not go far. Grainy screen grab, but perhaps some foam underneath, and ejection seat scorches on the side of the fuselage? Maybe a fuel bowser next to it? Perhaps when...

Hmmm, looks like the floats are flat on the inner surfaces, perhaps suggesting they telescope in to come together and give our floaty-Herk a downright svelte profile while in transit.

or do they...

You have made several references to the X-37 being a "successor" to some type of Aurora program, but perhaps it is not. A just in time air launch for transonic/suborbital recce or strike is a...

Wow, 15,000 total horsepower or 7,500HP per side- quite a leap from the original which flew with 2,200HP per engine!
