How to Make Noni Juice

Get some Noni.

Put them in a Noni jar.

After it is rotten, it is ready to drink.

Alaska Airlines First Class to Hawaii N560AS "Spirit of the Islands"

Portland Interplanetary Cosmodrome.

A plaque describes how the livery was designed by a kid, but he didn't actually paint it.

The coast was clear as we went oceanic.

Thai chicken lettuce wrap was served unwrapped.

Pineapple glazed chicken. Not so great.

Soy glazed pork chop was better.

Ice cream lost points on presentation.

All passengers and crewmembers get a pre-landing Mai Tai.

Glamor shot.

N861MA Mokulele Emergency Landing Cessna 208B Grand Caravan

This guy declared an emergency shortly after takeoff from Kahului Airport. Some sort of engine trouble. He deadsticked it back to mother earth.

Link to a news article HERE . Our followup post is HERE .

The parked plane is now Maui's hottest new tourist attraction.

You can see the touchdown skidmarks in the oncoming lane. Came to a stop about 50 yards from the intersection in the distance, just around the corner from the fire station.

N5UU GLEX with a Spitfire

This isn't just Beyond Cool, it's Beyond the Edge of the Known Universe Cool.

Owned (and flown) by businessman Tom Blair, who may still have the world's largest private collection of British WW2 warbirds. Some people just know how to live !

And we send Schönen Dank to Gerhard Plomitzer for allowing us to use this image. Gerhard has a website which can be found here : Gerhard Plomitzer. Amazing stuff ! 

For starters, look at these from Nellis . I wish I had taken just ONE of those ...

Vintage Dodger Stadium

For the price of one beer now, you could have gotten two beers, two Dodger Dogs, two bags of peanuts, a box of Cracker Jacks, and a cup of coffee. And two cigars.

Wind Generators

We don't understand why they installed Wind Generators here.

It's windy enough there anyway.

Gilligan's Island S.S. Minnow

Whenever I come across this picture I think of, "Gilligan's Island."

IN REALITY it isn't much like the S.S. Minnow.

But thank you for visiting Airplane Life.

Baywatch Hawaii

We tried to submit this to Totally Jacked Up Boat Photos, but there isn't one.

N399AF Cessna Model 560 Citation V

Registered just days before this picture.

Airliners and JetPhotos may eventually have this plane in their database, but they don't yet ... lagging behind Airplane Life as usual ...

Modern Convenience

We had a caption for this picture, but it was rejected by network censors.

Thursday, October 3, 2013


Invented by Russell Shirk in Bloomington, Illinois.

"Because they were the perfect compliment to a beer, BEER NUTS acquired it's name in 1953, and quickly became the undisputed snack of choice in bars and taverns throughout America."

We searched three states before we finally found some. Everyone knew what we were talking about, but nobody knew where to get them.
