The Sci-Fi Air Show Webpage!


Picked up on this neat website thanks to the Okuda Log - the Sci-Fi Airshow. The name only gives a hint as to what you will find on that webpage. There are some hints of Star Trek stuff in the hangars, but the main "attractions" are like the Orion space shuttle from "2001: A Space Odyssey"! Or Eagle 4 from "Space: 1999."

"Battlestar Galactica" is represented by 3 Vipers and the big shuttle. Even the Spindrift and Flying Sub from Irwin Allen's TV shows "Land of the Giants" and "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea!"

Always wanted to know about the Spindrift's Landing Gear - now I know!

Love the photos, and the displays.

Grew up watching some, well most of these shows and it is amazing to see them represented here.

Especially love seeing the old flying sub, that was a lot larger than I thought it would be.

Great photos, thanks for sharing, oh and loved seeing the Eagle, as she should be at night. Beautiful transport from an interesting series.
