Today marks the 71st Anniversary of the Attack on Pearl Harbor

Pearl harborEarly on the morning of December 7, 1941, 7:55 am, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. After less than two hours of bombing, 2500 servicemen and 68 civilians had been killed with more than 1,100 wounded. The USS Arizona sank with 1,100 servicemen aboard. It was hit 4 times during the attack. 18 American ships had been damaged or destroyed and nearly 300 U.S. aircraft had been damaged or destroyed.

Some former crewmembers have chosen the USS Arizona as their final resting place.
The bonds between the crewmembers of the USS Arizona have lasted far beyond the ship’s loss on December 7, 1941. Since 1982, the U.S. Navy has allowed survivors of the USS Arizona to be interred in the ship’s wreckage upon their deaths. Following a full military funeral at the Arizona memorial, the cremated remains are placed in an urn and then deposited by divers beneath one of the Arizona’s gun turrets. To date, more than 30 Arizona crewmen who survived Pearl Harbor have chosen the ship as their final resting place. Crewmembers who served on the ship prior to the attack may have their ashes scattered above the wreck site, and those who served on other vessels stationed at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, may have their ashes scattered above their former ships. As of November 2011, only 18 of the 355 crewmen who survived the bombing of the USS Arizona are known to be alive.

Today we honor our Veterans who sacrified their lives for us, their families and friends. 


"Greater love has no man than this: to lay down his life for his friends."  NIV John 15:13

Meet the Second of our Fabulous Female Aviators......

8FA-WillaBrownWilla Brown.......

Following in the footsteps of Bessie Coleman, who, in 1921, became the first African American, male or female, to earn a pilot’s license from France’s Federation Aeronautique Internationale, Willa Brown was the first African American woman to earn both a pilot’s license (1938) and a commercial license (1939) — no trip to France required. 
A former schoolteacher and social worker with a degree in education from Indiana State University, Brown went on to establish the Coffey School of Aeronautics at Chicago’s Harlem Airport alongside her flight instructor-turned-husband, Cornelius Coffey. This institution would later become the first government-approved aviation training school for African Americans. The duo, along with newspaper editor Enoch P. Walters, formed the National Airmen Association of America, an organization with the aim of integrating black pilots into the U.S. military. 
Brown’s tireless fight for racial equality on the ground and in the sky eventually proved successful when the Coffey School was selected by the Civil Aeronautics Administration as one of several black aviation programs allowed to offer the Civilian Pilot Training Program (CPTP) to its pupils. In 1942, Brown became the first black female member of the Civil Air Patrol. Later, the Coffey School, with the U.S. Army's stamp of approval, began to send pupils to the pilot training program at the Tuskegee Army Air Field (Sharpe Field) in Macon County, Ala.

ROLLS-ROYCE Unveils Lego Jet Engine (150,000 Legos and 1 Jet Engine!)

Lego800-2_tcm92-37876 ROLLS-ROYCE Unveils Lego Jet Engine

Rolls-Royce unveils at Farnborough the world's first jet engine to be made entirely of Lego

The engine, which is one of the most complex Lego structures ever built, is a half size replica of the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 which powers the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

The one of a kind Lego structure shows the complex inner workings of a jet engine and took four people eight weeks to complete.

Including 152,455 Lego bricks, the engine weighs 307 kg and is over 2 meters long and 1.5 meters wide.

Over 160 separate engine components were built and joined together in order to replicate a real jet engine. Everything from the large fan blades which suck air into the engine down to the combustion chambers where fuel is burned, had to be analysed and replicated using the world famous building blocks.

A team of graduates and apprentices from Rolls-Royce used their knowledge of the Trent 1000 engine to work with the company Bright Bricks, experts in Lego, to produce the immensely complex structure.

Not familiar with the Ninety-Nines?

Established in 1929 by 99 women pilots, the members of The Ninety-Nines, Inc., International Organization of Women Pilots, are represented in all areas of aviation today.  And, to quote Amelia, "fly for the fun of it!"
