Click on photo for a much bigger moon.

I will NOT click on for a much bigger moon.  The current one is plenty big enough, thank you ! ;D

Yep, it's just the right size to allow for total solar eclipses ;).
Would be marching to the beat of his own drum, if he didn't detest marching to any drumbeat at all so much.

I wonder, is that an early B-52H being used for testing and development?  The short tail and the turbofan engines clearly mark it as a B-52H.

Not the first B-52H-135-BW, but 60-0006 was probably the first to fly. She was later employed on EVS trials (although those E/O protrusions are not in evidence here).

Subtle reveal that after replaced by B-21 the B-2s will be modified into transports.

Could also make for steathy tankers to refuel *really* secret aircraft.  Auxiliary tank in the RH weapons bay and appropriate refueling gear (either a stealthed boom or a drogue system designed for stealth).

Well I am sure quite a few of us can relate to the idea of having tight slim bodies when we were younger but then develop somewhat of a paunch in midlife... ;)

Anti-suicide nets added to some Ukrainian vehicles seem to work (better than Russian cope cages, apparently):

NEWS📢 No. 5 Squadron’s much-loved Orion aircraft put on a show in the skies over the North Island yesterday, before the fleet retires at the end of the month after more than 55 years of service 💙
