Did you ever see a 747 launch off the top of a building?  Talk about a short runway!  This retired 747 is a part of a new water slide at a the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville, Oregon, USA.  Here is a video of how they got that huge plane up there.  It’s part of a water amusement park that is next to their aviation and space  museum.

  12. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  13. […] I asked Chris last night what I should do for my Theme Tuesday.  She thought I should do wheels.  At first I didn’t think I had a lot other than cars, but….. As you can tell, I had one or two up my sleeve.  The wheel with my pug, Shadow, was on a 747 that was on display at Evergreen Aviation Museum.  That 747 is now on top of a building at the Museum and is used as a water slide.  (see Chris’s blog showing the 747) […]
