That's the Avionics Testbed that they developed the sensors and software for the F-22 on. They were supposed to be using it for the F-35 as well, but when I've seen it it's always had the F-22 nose and sensors on. They may be using it to develop the next generation of sensors for the Raptors.

Hey Guys! cool pics as usual. I was interested in a pic you removed from this post. What is suspended in the background when looking at the Diamond FSD on the second floor. I couldn't identify it yesterday and now its' gone.

Which one? If it was the one with pusher props it's a Starship.

Not a pusher. In the particular pic I am interested it there wasn't a bunch in frame. I can say it was off white/ almost yellow?

Probably right next to the Starship. I think they have two. One with retractable gear one without.

Over at Boeing Field, at the museum there, they have a Glasair SII that was a kit build by Boeing employees.

I'm so jealous....I worked construction at 5 of the locations...so cool to see em painted so lively.

At Renton we did a laser forward mount mock-up for the equipment. cut out the concrete and dig a twenty foot deep hole. Then set up racks. right where the assembly was. they set up a tent the size of New York city and we put a toy fan and vent it 200 feet to the personell door and tape it up.....the dust from digging is supposed to go out....that was in the wing assembly bldg.

hey, could I send you my address and have ya send me some of IVAR's seafood next time.?

That is a cool pane no? From the link you posted I guess differences between the II and III are basically the gear.

Yeah, it seems like there's not a huge difference between the models. They're great little airplanes and they look like they'd be a blast to fly.

That Ea-6B is one of my favourite birds. Not sure why, but I love it.

I think the Growler makes much more sense, but aesthetically the Prowler takes it for me.
