Can't find the link you said... and having to load all those pics... I had nothing against Vegas... BEFORE having to uselessly load all those pics... NOW, if I had it, I'd use it with absolute prejudice... Roll Eyes Grin

Can't you put the link on the forum? Wink

I'm ready to ship off to Vegas. Nice link there, cool photos. The page opens slowly, even on my fast connection, there's a lot of photos on it, so that's why.

No stops on that flight, but he did refuel twice a day from a truck on the ground, so he would have had to slow down and keep a steady very low altitude, from what I see in the refueling pict, a feat in itself, I guess, for the pilot and truck driver too.

Cool.
