A Titan IV was the first unmanned rocket I ever saw launched from Cape Canaveral. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

*sniffs*<br /><br />The last Titan IV from Cape Canaveral..... It makes me kind of sad. I always wanted to see one launch, and I don't think I have any chance of getting down there for this one. But maybe I can wrangle a trip to visit relatives in California for the absolute last Titan IV, which is planned to fly next summer from Vandenburg. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p> </p><p><font color="#666699"><em>"People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly . . . timey wimey . . . stuff."</em>  -- The Tenth Doctor, "Blink"</font></p> </div>

I was wondering the same thing, maybe it takes 6 months worth of prepwork, but that seems unlikely, to me. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

<font color="yellow">Most folks consider February a great time to get out of Minnesota</font><br /><br />That's probably when I'll be on the MSP run. Did I mention I was up there about 2 weeks ago? You folks have a nice airport cargo facility, very friendy too. I hope I upgrade to First Officer before winter. <img src="/images/icons/smile.gif" /> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

I'd offer to put you up at our house, BUT<br /><br />(a) You can't get much farther from the Cape than our house and *still* be in Florida<br /><br />(b) My son is a cute flirt, so both you and Ada would be in serious danger.<br /><br /><img src="/images/icons/wink.gif" /> <img src="/images/icons/wink.gif" /><br /><br />Wayne <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p>"1) Give no quarter; 2) Take no prisoners; 3) Sink everything."  Admiral Jackie Fisher</p> </div>
