Welcome cbxer55!

Sorry your post got delayed for approval.

Love the Thunderbird F-16! And what a nice collection you have there! I'm over 50 and have been riding my '04 since brand new. Riding these bikes will keep you in good shape.

You should've just deleted it, since the pictures are repeats. I'm a moderator on two other forums. It's what I would've done. No problem though, your choice.
I did think about deleting some pics but I'd rather leave the decision of which ones to keep up to the OP. Since you're a mod you should know how that edit/delete button relationship works. :p:LOL:

Haha. I work at Tinker AFB in Midwest City Oklahoma. The Thunderbirds were there one year, and they were parked right outside the hangar I work in. The pilot of that particular plane took the picture for me.
That's pretty damn cool. I used to live right next to an airport with the NG. Thank God they retired the F-4 Phantom! Those bastards would rattle the windows and doors in the house when they took off. We used to ride our bicycles down to the end of our road which was a stones throw, literally, away from the NG when they were prepping for take-off. There would be 3-4 F-16's at any time just sitting there for a few minutes doing their check offs.

Truth be told, I grew up in the sheet metal industry. ;) It was commercial sheet metal with ductwork. Not the fine crafting that you would be doing. Put it this way, we didn't have an English wheel, shrinkers, or spreaders. We had a bead machine, a 4' foot stomp sheer, and a 10' brake. We made 1000's of feet of ductwork that didn't require that much precision. I remember taking on a project for a friend who wanted a console made for his car. It sounded so easy in my head. :rolleyes:
