Salt Flats II, Critters, Planes

I’ll keep this quick since this is on the exact same subject as my last post. I just have a couple more photos to share. The first is from the Living Planet Aquarium in Sandy Utah. It isn’t the most awesome aquarium in the world, but it was pretty cool considering it is in a not-so-big city 600 miles from the ocean. This is the fish that Bethany called a grandpa-fish. I think it is actually a lion-fish, but grandpa seems to fit.

I also have a photo of Bethany pondering in awe this A-10 “Thunderbolt II” which just so happens to be one of my favorite aircraft. If you look there in front of her you’ll see something interesting. Yes, if you guessed Avenger Cannon, you are exactly right.  If you guessed Ultra-Death-Gun you are pretty much right too. That thing is capable of firing 3,900 rounds per minute, that is about 4 times faster than an M-16 and it is firing projectiles that weigh 90 times that of the bullet from an M-16. It is meant for destroying tanks and other things protected by thick steel plates.

This is an A-10 at the Hill Aerospace Museum. There is an Avenger Cannon on display beside it.

And finally, just another shot from the Bonneville Salt Flats about 10 miles east of Wendover. This is one of the few where Bethany managed to open her eyes without sunglasses.
