I agree about the C-119. It is a great aircraft with a good history. I think one like this would be nice.

The Lockheed Saturn was actually the Hercules' predecessor.

I admit to a certain bias, but I rather like this one.

I have always thought that the RCAF/CF natural metal/red scheme of the 50's-80's was very attractive.

Understandable Rick. That is a nice looking plane. Is that a larger radome on the nose?

I'm not certain, it might be one of the birds attached to the test squadron which would explain the odd nose. CEPE (Central Experimental Proving Establishment), later AETE (Aerospace Experimental Test Establishment) always had some strange birds on it's flight line.

Howzit

The C-119 is an awesome plane, pure utilitarian design, built to do a job without worrying about looks, my kind of engineering.

Talking about the Transall C-160, the SAAF had a number of them, very effective planes, STOL performance is amazing. Saw one do a landing at an airshow, near vertical drop, then at the last minute pulled up and landed in almost no distance, very cool.

I saw something similar with a C-130 at an airshow. It is quite impressive to see something that big stop so quickly. :shock:

Now here's a short landing (with major incentives). Not done once, but over twenty times. The C-130 is truly a remarkable plane. This particualr bird currently basks in the Florida sunshine, on the flightline of the National Museum of Naval Aviation....along with a host of other historic, or record setting aircraft.

That is one set of flights that I would not want to be on.

Do any of you guys know where I can get fonts for my computer without having to pay a boat load? I need a font called Machine. My C-47 is only partly correct because I had to use Impact for the "M2". If you guys have any leads or suggestions, please let me know. Thanks

As an "information security manager," I feel pretty comfortable to download free ones from the web. However, be advised that taking that route, while thrifty, also requires you to have an active:

- Real-time Antivirus
- Pop-up blocker
- Spyware blocker
- Routing firewall
- PC firewall

and the never popular
Backup plan

There's a lot of stuff available, but just be careful you don't get infected. If you don't want to take the chance that you have to recover from backup, try looking in the bargain bins at CompUSA or Fry's electronics at the $5 or less CDs. Normally, you can find three or four year old Fonts of Clipart CDs, each with between 5,000 and 10,000 selections on them.

Good luck!

Thanks for the info. I do my design work in Adobe for PC. I might have to check at one of those stores.

This is a gold mine of fonts....some are freeware, and others are shareware. You really don't mind paying someone for their work, do you? The price is small for most of these fonts--just like card models.....many are free. A bit of language skill is helpful, but not totally necessary to navigate this well thought out site.
