#DiveBomber named one of @TravelChannel top slides to ride this summer in the U.S.!

I always enjoy watching these guys do their thing. They've got to be adrenaline junkies for sure! He's barely clearing the power lines with each pass. 😳 #cropduster #cropdusting #kansas #divebomber #adrenalinejunkie

Every now and then the three amigos willingly go to a destination filled with children. Not pictured: @sydneykinev (the only one brave enough to ride the #DiveBomber). #ATL #RagingBurritoCommune

A little more progress on the vintage Airfix Douglas. Canopy masked, a little interior detail added, a blanking plate (next photo) and the exhausts drilled out on the cowling. #airfix#scalemodel#sbd5dauntless#officialairfix#dauntless#douglasaircraft#douglasdauntless#ww2#172scale#pilot#aviation#airforce#usn#usaf#divebrakes#divebomber#ipms#wip#plastickit#plasticmodel#revell#tamiya#sbd#

Congrats to our sister water park Six Flags White Water for winning Best New Water Ride of 2015 for #DiveBomber tonight!! Tomorrow is the last day White Water is open for the season.

How does carrier replace battleship as a modern capital ship ? (Part 4)
βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–
Compare again with carrier. Say the same scenario - a carrier was visited by a group of enemy aircraft. The "sphere of influence" of a carrier is larger than battleship, and the planes will be intercepted by the fighter-fighter CAP (combat air patrol) around the battleship. CAP patrol distance is indeed much farther than the maximum range of naval gun battleship. Moreover CAP US Navy carriers are radar-shaped, more likely to intercept the opponent's aircraft. And unlike battleship, where the opposing plane can "hang out" beyond the range of AA ships, the CAP-caught aircraft will be immediately pursued in WVR, otherwise known as "dogfight" so that the whole attack becomes dispersed. In addition, hundreds of machine-gun / cannon bullets fired from one plane to drop another plane can be practically more economical than a DP gun effort in anti-aircraft function that fires dozens of large-caliber bullets in doing the same.
βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–
About flexibility, the carrier is absolutely no problem. There are three types of aircraft carried by aircraft carrier, namely fighter, dive-bomber and torpedo-bomber. Several types of aircraft double as dive / torpedo bomber. The enemy sent the plane ? Just send a fighter. The enemy sends a surface combatant ? Send a bomber dive and torpedo bomber and fighter if necessary, as an escort. Target on land ? Use a dive-bomber or dive / torpedo bomber. Moreover, the aircraft can be deployed in all directions to be free to fight against various targets. Finally, the effectiveness of these planes is not limited by distance. The accuracy of the naval gun battleship will decrease with distance, but not so with the plane. The plane still has to get closer to the target, so the ammunitions they drop will always be more accurate, and not affected by their distance from their ship.

Now you see him...(swipe to the left)... Now you don't. I take about a gazillion photos to get a good one because​ these birds are so darn fast!

Just minding my own business, sending the morning peemails, and this annoying bird keeps dive bombing me! The nerve. #furisbetterthanfeathers #annoyingbird #divebomber #dogslife #ohbentley

Iceland is full of Arctic Terns and they enjoy diving at you if you walk close to their nests. Nikunj bravely agreed to be bait so that you can see them in action (eventually I got attacked, once, and Nikunj walked away unscathed).

Had a super duper uncontrollable giggle fest during our dive bomb warmup with @danegerousfitness at @workirvine this morning. Why? Cuz I was imagining myself as a fierce eagle swooping in for the kill! Yes, in reality I'm just a gassy panda. Note to self: let the sweet potato🍠 cool down first.

Another old model, this one has pretty much survived all the moves over the years.
