Man in the Moon Update: Flying the T-6 Texan

Last week, we got video off a cell phone from Ben at the American Dream Labs. What were they doing out there? The team from the Dream Labs has sent in some new video teasing what they were working on for the Man in the Moon.

    Glenn that is just something else. I don’t care why you are doing it just to see one of those classics flying is a sit to see. Here is web site if you have an interest in old planes. This group takes a few out to air ports and let you tour the bigger ones and even lets you fly in a few of their planes. http://www.collingsfoundation.org/menu.htm

    Did you get a chance to land that in a lake with one of those? I always thought that would be an experience. The one B-17 they have on tour is the same type of model my great uncle flew in during World War 2. They had him on the bottom turret and as a tail gunner. He was rated for both of them. I wished I had the money to fly in the thing tho even tho I really hate heights I would have loved a chance to fly in the same plane as he did. He was a good man and I was blessed to of known him.

    NO. It was at the “SUN’n FUN” fly-in 5 years ago. The plane is 60+ years old and it needs tender loving care.

    It was an exciting flight though.

    Back when the USA could manufacture these things by the thousands and train pilots by thousands.  Now the technology is so complex the planes are too expensive along with the training to fly them.

    Glenn is busy getting a “brown landing” (hiring one of Ted Haggard’s male escorts to defecate on his bare chest

    So you think that the USAF should go back to planes like that because they’re cheap and easy…?  Maybe the Army and Marines should revert to swords and horses too?

    The USN called it the “SNJ” and in Canada it is the “Harvard”.

     @nutt – Tony’s comment wasn’t that we should go back to the 1940s, but that we should consider equipment which manages to be both less complicated (read that “prone to break”) and less expensive. In aviation, a great example is the F-20 Tigershark – better performance than the F-16, and tremendously less expensive. The F-20 could compete with most of *today’s* planes in most regards – at mere *fractions* of the cost. If it weren’t for the fact that the military has made it clear that they only want ridiculously-priced equipment which almost never actually works, maybe some variant of a cheap, easy-to-maintain aircraft could be developed that *wouldn’t* cost as much as the combined annual salaries of the US Senate …
