Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

Back to being serious for a moment, yeah, we have quite a few that live near us in the woods and as soon as the sun goes down they're out and about, so it's pretty cool seeing bats daily, well nightly.

Used to have a website of bat desktops bookmarked but looks like I've lost it, going to try and find that again.

Mice. Bats. Ponies.

As long as they fight evil, spread decency and have awesome merchandise to buy I'm cool.

I have my Win7 backgrounds setup for a slide show, so here's all the ones I currently use.The originals are sized to stretch across my two widescreen monitors. This is my work computer, so no icons.

BTW, the fourth one down looks like a render, but it is an actual photo of Mars from one of our spacecraft!

I believe that fourth one is a crop of the image which can be seen on this page, and that the crater on the terminator just above the center in your image is Gale Crater, site of the recent Mars Curiosity rover landing.

That many F-15 Eagles on one runway? Gorgeous.

My favorite air superiority fighter aircraft, hands down.

I've always loved the design of the F-15, used to have an old die-cast model but no idea what happened to it.

Mine too. Though I think those might be Strike Eagles. Hard to tell.

I do have to give props to the Sokhoi's though. Having seen both the Chakra and Cobra performed live, I have to see they really are an amazing spectacle and pretty much beyond the capabilities of the F-15C. Though, many would argue that flamboyant maneuvers are all the Su-27, 35, and 37 are good for. Non of them have really been battle tested, whereas the F-15 has been put through the wringer countless times.

The classic F/A-18 is and probably will always be (all around) my favorite jet-fighter--I'm not as big a fan of the Super Hornet. It's appearance is just so elegant and graceful. And while it never got the chance to prove itself as an interceptor, it was probably the most effective attacker, next to the A-10, in both Iraq wars--even more-so than the F-117 IMO.

And my only real qualms about the Super Hornet are because I think it lost most of that "elegance and grace" with the redesign. Have to say though, the Growler if pretty epic. I never gave much credence to electronic support attackers because I thought it was a job best left to AWACS, but that thing makes a really strong argument.


Anyways, sorry for the tangent. Back to wallpaper!

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

The specific picture that I cropped for the F-15s (which are F-15Es, BTW) is here:
http://www.af.mil/shared/media/photo...-MN146-839.jpg (4256x2832)

Here's another:
http://www.af.mil/shared/media/photo...-MN146-710.jpg (3114x2211)

And here's an AF story on the "Elephant Walk" of 70(!) F-15Es, with more pics:
http://www.seymourjohnson.af.mil/new...p?id=123298198

Side note: I've been very fortunate to have done some structural design on both the F-15 and the F/A-18E/F in the past, which is why they're both in my backgrounds. Amazing aircraft!
