U-2 Carrier Landing

0

The U-2 is a unique plane, it’s 100 foot wingspan and bicycle landing gear make it tough to land on ground. But I just found out that it is capable of carrier landing and take-offs. That is simply crazy! {reddit}

The Great Smokies and Japan

0

It’s no secret that I love the National Parks. They are steeped in history be it natural, historical, or modern. I kind of knew some of the history of The Great Smoky Mountains, basically the gist of George Masa being responsible for it. However this short 5 minute video is a great retrospective of all … Continued

The Day

The Music Died. Most of us have no relocation of this day as it happened in 1959, but countless people have been influenced by the terrible day in music history. I came across this article a few weeks ago, yes it might be over 10 years old, but it goes into great detail about things … Continued

December 7th, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

The decisive end to World War 2 came about 74 years ago today with the Atomic bombing of the port city of Nagasaki.  The Empire of Japan having not really believed what happened a few days prior at Hiroshima did not head the warning the US was giving and as such, something terrible happened.
