    NASA T-38 Aircraft To Fly Over Washington Metro Area April 5

    T-38s Soar as Spaceflight Trainers

    Years before the space shuttle would glide home to a safe touchdown on runways in California and Florida, astronauts pitched the noses of T-38 jet trainers toward the same runways to find out what it would look like to land a spacecraft in such a way.
    The T-38 remains a fixture for astronaut training more than 30 years later because the sleek, white jets make pilots and mission specialists think quickly in changing situations, mental experiences the astronauts say are critical to practicing for the rigors of spaceflight.

    much more............ and pictures

    Its taken a while but typhoon is an awesome aircraft.

    Having worked for BAE, some of us never believed it would replace tornado gr4.

    EDIT: Superb photos everyone.

    RAF - Tornado GR4

    This aircraft will always be awesome because it's an all-weather attack aircraft and it can also deliver a wide variety of weapons.

    The pictures in this forum look great too.
