V day in Mojave

Veterans day celebration in Mojave CA with my daugter and dogs. The event was at the Mojave Airport/Spaceport.

We watched quite a bit of the show from Stuart Witt's office that looks over the tarmac. Stuart grew up near lake Isabella about the same time I was attending Mojave High School .

Judging from the web page, there seems to be a lot of diet problems at MHS that didn't seem to be a problem there when I was a kid. In fact I think there was only one fat kid in the whole school back in the 1970's.

Mojave Airport has become a hot bed for aerospace innovation, with the most recent accomplishment being the launch and recovery of the first commercial space craft the Spaceship one. Burt Rutan still runs Scaled Composits from Mojave, I can hardly wait to see his next project.

There was a repeat post here, but that's the way it goes.
