In the Sky, it’s a Bird, it’s a Stealth

blog-stealthWhile attention remains fixed on the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, let’s take a quick glance upward at a couple airborne episodes from last week: citizens of Detroit were angered when an F-18 fighter buzzed an apartment building during a low-level demonstration flight, as part of the opening ceremony for a speedboat race on the Detroit River (check the jaw-dropping photo here); while President Obama may have had his mom-jeans moment on the baseball diamond at the MLB All-Star Game, it was the bizarre appearance of a menacing B-2 Stealth Bomber flying overhead that was the genuine eyesore (also reported this month were new findings about how close the Nazis came to developing a stealth bomber); meanwhile, back on the ground, it’s worth taking a moment to see what happened when the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile took one giant leap for mankind into someone’s house. How would Kronkite have reported that one?
