    I’m still trying to figure out Power Point, talk about a learning curve, but they will get better.

    Edit: I wish I could give the credit to whomever took these photos, but there doesn’t seem to be any names on the .PPS file to give credit to.

    By the way I change the first picture, to see the change delete the Temp Internet Files folder.

    Nice Tomcat, looks like it could be from VF-84 "Jolly Rogers" off the Kennedy. Could easily be wrong though.

    Someone here posted a picture of a P-51 Mustang in flight with the wings tip pointed at the ground. They offered a high resolution version via email. I got it, printed it, framed it, and hung it on the wall close to my computer. Neat picture! These look to be of a similar nature and I would like to know where you got them. I'd like to see what is offered in Higher Resolution to hang on the wall too.

    So, where did you get them? Are there more? Are there high Resloution versions available?

    I think there is nothing more beautiful both aesthetically and mechanically than an airplane. Even motorcycles, guns, or classic cameras, my life hobbies, don't hold a candle to airplanes!

    Mr. Bennett that was me that sent you the pic of the P-51, it was taken from my flight simulator. I’m glad to hear that you have it hanging on your wall; I think that is quite the compliment. Thank you.


    As far as these pictures go, they were sent via e-mail in the form of a power point presentation. So the answer to a better quality, bigger, higher resolution pic would have to be no. I have made the original size just a little bigger, so there really isn’t a loss in quality. There are about 40 or so pics in the PPS format and I’ll do the work to change them all into JPEGs and post them here if everyone would like.
    Or if you want the slideshow (3.2 MB) I’ll e-mail to you, just PM me your address. The slideshow is of Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard.

    What other pictures will your flight simulator provide? I really liked the quality of the file of the P-51 you gave me. Can you do that for other flight simulator planes as well?

    While the modern pictures are neat, the Mustang one is phenomenal! I want more! (if possible)

    My reply got inside the quote somehow - anyhow, airliners.net is a great site to download wallpaper.

    And upon closer inspection, the Tomcat is from VF-101 "Grim Reapers", I think.

    The second is the correct one for sure. All except the fact that the nose # is one off.

    I still have a bunch more pics, you what em?

    At least a few dollars of my tax money is well spent!
