The Navy has recovered the stealth F-35 that crashed into the South China Sea. Here it is in the photo.

Great comment:

No wonder it crashed — all wrapped up like that. Pilot likely couldn’t see where he was going.

US won’t rule out military action if China establishes base in Solomon Islands

On Tuesday, Kritenbrink reiterated the US’s willingness to act in the region if a military base were established by China.“Of course, we have respect for the Solomon Islands sovereignty, but we also wanted to let them know that if steps were taken to establish a de facto permanent military presence, power projection capabilities, or a military installation, then we would have significant concerns, and we would very naturally respond to those concerns,” he said.When asked what that response could involve, he said: “Look, I’m not going to speculate and I’m not in a position to talk about what the United States may or may not do in such a situation.”Pressed on whether he would rule out the prospect of the US taking military action against Solomon Islands were a naval base to be established, and, if not, whether he was comfortable with Australian prime minister Scott Morrison’s talk of the base being a “red line” for Australia, he said: “I don’t have a lot to add beyond what I’ve already stated.”

Two Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantrymen, 1CID in a slit trench at Spinete, Italy, 22 Oct 1943. An M-1 TSMG can be seen with the butt unscrewed. This was commonly done to reduce length and weight during night patrols, as most shooting was at extreme close range and the fire-arm acted as a fully-automatic pistol with a large capacity magazine. Butts of the M-1928 versions were readily detached and re-attached using an integral push button; however, M-1 butts had to be unscrewed to remove.

One of the best documentaries about the air war in the Italian campaign. One scene points out the horrible attrition rate of the war as they introduce a 24 year old Lt. Colonel, and address him as "the old man".

Before it was a Hollywood movie, it was a documentary. This film takes you into the daily lives of the aircrew and inside the aircraft of a B-17 flying fortress as it conducts missions over Nazi Germany.
