just watched a doc on the x-1, need to get back to the Smithsonian aviation museum soon.

My Pops has been engineering flight actuators for fighters, bombers and missiles for over 40 years, lotsa good stories. When I was about 8 yrs old he was drafting on the kitchen table and he told me he was working on the worlds first invisible plane, it blew my tiny mind. I asked him about it as an adult and he told me it was the Stealth Bomber. Little did I know that the nations security was being drawn up with the colored pencils I used to steal from him.
