Loving the pictures from this Sci-Fi Airshow. If only I also had the chance to touch history like the people in these pictures.

Hmmm... scale replicas of sci fi spacecraft, win. Is it really an "airshow", though? Do any of them fly?

(Though I guess most of the things you see at a regular airshow are grounded and there are only a few actual flights- I'd forgive them if they had a working one of these...)

Of course they fly - look at this Hawk taking off:

It has to be real. All 1970s Space dramas have to be real, or my childhood means nothing...

But Star Wars is a historical documentary of doubtful accuracy- when the controversy between the rival groups of academics disputing the factual accuracy makes a splash in the tabloids it'll probably be called "Stargate". 

Then there wil be a charity walk (or "Trek") to raise awareness of Star issues... it's messy...

It looks wide-angle - I wonder if it's a remote camera?

Thanks, Kite. I actually saw the link when I first looked at this page, but didn't *realize* it was a link. {Measure Once, Cut Twice. Measure Twice, Cut Once....} -Allan, aka RocKITEman
