The Aerial "Tank" of the Future -- October 1, 2017

Flight, 01-February-1917
"By an inventor who should be interned." 

===============================================

The Giants won their last game of the season, on a walk-off home run by Pablo Sandoval.  This was a bad season, with 98 losses.  Matt Cain had a nice send-off after the game.

That picture was intended satirically but is kind of awesome. I think I'll use it as a desktop for a few days :)

I wonder what the illustrator would have thought of the Flying Fortresses of the next war--not so far of from a "flying tank", really.

Hi Nick. Have you ever seen the Barling Bomber? It was a step in that direction. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Witteman-Lewis_XNBL-1

That really is kind of a missing link between generations of planes.
