John Lear, what is Lost all about? And will Kate and Jack ever be together?
From what you have posted, we expect no less than a mesospheric bomber fueled by the element 115 reactor.

If that is the TV program you are asking about I don't watch too much TV and when I do it is "Columbo" reruns.
The Philadelphia experiment was an attempt at invisibility. A few months ago I had a chance to talk to a very prominent Canadian scientist who said his grandfather worked on the Philadelphia experiment and knew my father.
If it's not a secret, may I ask that scientist's name?
Did you ever fly the F104 starfighter? ( did you ever fly fighterjets lol )
Most wicked plane of those times i know.
How many crashed??
The MErcury Surface, Space ENvironment, GEochemistry, and Ranging spacecraft, called MESSENGER, is the first mission sent to orbit the planet closest to our sun. Before that orbit begins in 2011, the probe will make three flights past the small planet, skimming as close as 124 miles above Mercury's cratered, rocky surface. MESSENGER's cameras and other sophisticated, high-technology instruments will collect more than 1,200 images and make other observations during this approach, encounter and departure. It will make the first up-close measurements since Mariner 10 spacecraft's third and final flyby on March 16, 1975. When Mariner 10 flew by Mercury in the mid-1970s, it surveyed only one hemisphere.
Scientists are hoping that what they learn next week will help them begin to answer lingering questions about the planet's origin, magnetic field, atmosphere and what that means about our own planet.
Mercury is a "real oddball," said lead researcher Sean Solomon of the Carnegie Institution of Washington. The planet is so close to the sun that temperatures vary at the equator between day and night by 1,100 degrees. At the same time, there is also evidence of ice at the poles.
I'm curious about your impressions and opinions on the upcoming flybys of Mercury by the Messenger spacecraft starting today.
What about the claims of a magnetic field for the planet, and evidence of polar ice caps? Do you think the surface temp. really swings 1100* F between day and night? Do you believe Mercury to be inhabited? Is there industry like mining going on there?
124 miles is pretty darn close. They ought to be able to get a really good look.
Do you think we will get accurate information and unedited images here in the public domain?
Is that a stupid question?
Have you had any close calls when flying in any non safe zones, like vietnam or have you been in a situation where a plane you were piloting was in trouble (Mechanical) ?
During your time in Vietnam and East Asia, did you come across any other covert op's running in Vietnam
or any experimental planes or technology being trialed in Vietnam or East Asia
and during your time did you come across strange sightings or strange events?
Ha, well done for giving it to Kenny G

The sun is an electromagnetic sphere. The energy from the sun is not heat. The energy from the sun is filtered and modulated by a planets atmosphere to make that planet comfortable for human life.
Hello Capt Lear,
I am curious about your theory of stars, and their nature. If our Sun, and the other 400 billion, or so, stars in our Galaxy aren't made of very hot Hydrogen, and trace gases, burning in a nuclear fusion to create the heavier elements of the periodic table, then just how DID the Sun and stars come to be? What is the mechanism that forms stars, and planets...and Pulsars, and Neutron stars...and why are there HUGE dust clouds in our Galaxy that appear to be stellar 'nurseries'.
Please help with this question, thanks.
it to add: still getting the hang of this 'quoting' business...
