Hi Johanna - beautiful modern artsy stained glass windows - thanks!
For those who like stained glass windows and might be near or visiting Washington, D.C., then I would recommend a trip to the National Cathedral (two pics, outside & inside below from the web) - there are over 200 windows with varied subjects, some traditional, and others related to world religions, nations, history, etc. - added some examples (all images from the web) - even one dedicated to the Confederate general, Stonewall Jackson - Dave
Chalk Farm Station, the nearest Underground station to the Roundhouse, home of the iTunes Music Festival.
When we flew to Prague, we flew Aeroflot, and the flight attendants actually looked like this poster - it was straight out of the 1960s!
This image was posted on the accuweather Twitter account today. It's from Monument Valley, Arizona / Utah U.S.A. See if you can spot (2) weather features in the background cloud system.
Hey Bob - reminds my of a flying experience - back in the late 1980s, my colleague & I got the chance to fly from Kennedy Airpot in NYC to Paris and back on the 'baby' shown below - MACH 2+ @ 60,000 ft - 3 hours to Paris - paid for by two companies in which we had a competing $3 million deal to settle on X-ray equipment - who to chose?
The stewardesses where gorgeous French gals who serve us the best food that I ever had on an airplane (yes, better that peanuts and a drink) - now just a memory for me & the plane - Dave
I see a rainbow and a funnel cloud/tornado.
Concorde actually flew to Regina, Saskatchewan once when it brought the President of France for a visit.
Curious how the 'sonic boom' issue was handled over land? When we took off from Kennedy Airport, the 'after burners' (may not be the right name) were activated over the ocean and you could feel the thrust as the MACH meter went above one and finally to 2+, then of course coming over land in Europe the plane slowed down - just curious if the Concorde was flying sub-sonic to Regina - have no idea, sorry? Dave
They had to fly at subsonic speeds all the way across Canada. Very fuel inefficient, even for Concorde. I don't think any countries let Concorde fly at supersonic speeds over land. That's what killed it in terms of long term sustainability.
