I would like to say "thanks" to Nookians in the uniformed armed services by sending them a homemade blade sampler.

I will prepare five blade samplers of 25-30 blades each, one for each of the first five PMs I get from a member of our armed services deployed abroad. If you PM me, and don't get a return-PM, it means that you were not among the first five. I apologize in advance if anyone is left out.

Do not forget to include your somewhat odd military address. I will try and get it to you well in advance of the holiday season.

Hope you like it...and please be careful out there.

Very decent of you Ted - while I'm currently not deployed abroad, I'm glad to see that someone is thinking of my brothers-in-arms who are away from their loved ones Smile

Very nice of you, Ted.

BTW, your american jets are making a hell of a noise here with the joint exercise that is happening right now. I'm used to noise that our F16s make constantly, but please let me sleep. Biggrin

I loved this description. I wonder how is the noise when you're close to it, because most of the time we hear them but can't see them.

Very, very loud - double so when you're sticking your head into the engine bay to check on the 13th stage ECS valve because the pilot complain about snow in the cockpit...

...and yes, I used to do maintenance on F-16s (as well as the F-5s, DA-20s, Bell 412s and Sea Kings).

I am in the Air National Guard in Alabama as an NDI technician on F-16's. I'll say this, they are loud and that's about all that needs to be said. If you are in a building anywhere near where a runway when the Thunderbird takes off, you will definitely feel the vibration of it.
