This Week...Eyes On The Sky
For me, there’s nothing more exciting than seeing a plane in flight. And when you have several...as in the Thunderbirds or Blue Angels...then you can’t help but get goosebumps.
I have often said that the lure of flying is the lure of beauty. Amelia Earhart
We just missed seeing the Blue Angels fly over the Houston area last week (miscalculation by my own F-4 pilot...which proves why they needed a navigator!)
He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying. Friedrich Nietzsche
But Sunday we were able to see about two dozen World War II Warbirds fly over our area. It commemorated the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. This was presented by the Lone Star Flight Museum.
Science does not just drive space travel - space travel also drives science. Leroy Chiao
And this week, the new Space Force flag was unveiled at the White House. The Space Force is the new military branch within the Air Force.
Thankfully the Space Force came about 50 years too late for Larry to join.
No one cares about race or religion or nationality in space travel. We're all just part of Team Human. Anne McClain
I hope you’ll have a chance to see the Thunderbirds or Blue Angels, or even some of the older planes! Stand tall, Stand proud, and look up to the sky!

Have a wonderful weekend!
