R=UP

We've had some sort of radial-engine beast flying around Sacramento lately but every time I get outside to take a look it's gone. R=EM

But it sure is nice to hear it! :wink:

The sun set a few minutes ago and it's reflecting off of a layer of ice clouds!

Went for a 16km hike today carrying a 19kg backpack... took me 3 hours.

Can anybody tell me what that yellow stuff (mushroom???) is in the middle pic? [huh]

Some kind of weird fungus for sure. Did you see it on other trees or just this one?

If I had to guess? Sulfur fungus (Laetiporus sulphureus).

Supposedly it tastes like chicken.

I did some more digging;

Option B and unfortunately more likely than the sulfur fungus, fuligo septica, aka...dog vomit slime mould.

Links for both.

Went to FHC again on Saturday for the first time in a good while to see something really special. A fully restored Me 262. With fully operational Jumo 004 engines to boot. They'll be starting flight tests next month which will make this the only operational Me 262 anywhere.

Suh-weet! 8O

Amazed they haven't painted over the swastika on the tail-fin. Might need to do it just in case some hip 'n' trendy extra-woke person sees it and suffers a major attack of the vapours. This world these days.... :roll:

Coming from a card carrying lefty I'll admit it's a bit jarring a times. But FHC prides itself on historical accuracy and that includes the Hackenkreuz.

The part that boggles me is that an entire generation of actual Holocaust survivors and WW2 veterans from multiple countries could see the swastika for years after their ordeal in movies, on TV shows, on model kits, on equipment in museums, or in a hundred other places and not be freaked out by it at all. Then all of a sudden, thanks to a generation of college kids who nearly pass out in panic if a professor dares to tell them "no, that's incorrect" in class, the symbol gets purged from all eyesight, like simply seeing it is going to make some dopey weirdo start sieg heil-ing around their parent's rec room and then go out to burn down a synagogue. Man, everything sure went wrong and cruddy in a hurry, didn't it.

If the swastika is never seen by human eyes again it won't be a loss to humanity.

But historical context is one thing. Out and about in public is another thing. That can stop.
