    Cool is the heavily weathered A6M3 Zero. Not cool is the mismatched chute & paratrooper. Lunacy is the reflector gunsight image. Idiocy is the crosshair gunsight on top of the reflector gunsight.

    On the whole...A less than cool pic.
    Subpar Photoshopping.

    Visited, https://cosmo.org/exhibitions/hall-of-space
    In Hutchinson Kansas in the early 2000's. Excellent museum and the Liberty Bell capsule is currently on display in the Main lobby through this month. Apollo 13 is there and the best display of early Space memorabilia that can be found.
    I want to make another trip there in the not too distant future.

    That's not far from Abilene. I may have to check out that museum the next time I head down that way.

    "North American NAA-57 Harvard sold to France in the 1930s and then captured by the Germans. The Luftwaffe used these planes as trainers and glider tugs. This photo was taken at Guyancourt, France, early 1944."

    You say

    You say less than cool, I say cool. As far as I’m concerned it’s cool enough. I do understand and appreciate your observations, but I’m going to have to go with my initial description and maintain my position that’s it’s a cool pic.

    Well, it is "art" after all, so there will be varying opinions on it. What is cool for on person, is not necessarily cool for another.

    Eric "Winkle" Brown, famous test pilot, called the Seafire a marverlous plane that should never have tried to land on a carrier.
