I enjoy the History Channel and several similar channels with major engineering accomplishments. As bridges go, the two I think of are the Golden State Bridge and the Mackinaw Bridge. There’s one other, the Tacoma Narrows bridge (aka: Galloping Gertie). It collapsed in 1940 shortly after it open.

Of the above, the Tacoma is my favourite, purely as the collapse was all about vortices, my favourite subject! Come to think of it, I haven't mentioned vortices for quite a while. Nice to get the first one of the year out of the way.
Vortex vortex VORTEX!!!

I would like to see you at the Air Mobility Command annual confrence on Low Level Wind Sheer. I know the Royal Air Force used to send line officers to the event. We used to have a running joke bout going to the Low Level Wind Sheer test range... You would know it better as the golf course.

V.M - I have had that happen on some of those pedestian motorway crossing's near here, especially the one near the local Aussie Rules Club, I always thought it was the beer/wine.pete

The problem with the English bridges was the designer was Aurther Murray.

Leon Moisseiff was the designer of the Tacoma bridge. I could not find anything on Arthur Murray. Please elaborate, we're in too deep now to worry about hijacks!

He was a famous nationl dance school owner in the '50s here in the States.
I figured he must have designed any bridge that can get people moving in lock step!

I'm going to try and post a photo again. Wish me luck.
Arrghhh!!!! Didn't work!

Horray!! It worked.
Sorry it's not bigger. This is my light trout 6" glider. Works like a champ.

The links you posted are for your passworded e-mail (?) site. If you start an account on PhotoBucket, you can post your photos in by brackets around the web site you are trying to link your photos from. Some sites do not allow unauthorized access without a user account.

Does that mean I shouldn't try to post pictures that way? It's the simplest way I know. I should have known there must be something wrong with it.
I can't figure out how to get my photos from Photobucket to the TU website, either in the gallery or in a post.

One more try.
Drat! It's still small.
Can anyone tell me how to enlarge the image before I send it?

Mark, just (re?)read Hazmail's thread about uploading multiple pictures (now in page 2 of the threads). After reading it, I was able to post pictures in my recent thread. And my English is not the best in the world.

I've read Hazmail's instructions (they're printed out next to me).
Here goes nothing.

Thank you Rofish and Hazmail.
Here's a 5' bluegill airbrush
Here's my drying wheel. Thank you Dean.
I'm working on a couple of jointed baits. I'll post them when I'm finished.

Mark, your lures look great! But you have forgotten to tell us one thing. Which ones are the best catchers? Maybe some of us would like to copy them
