    Who says that the US would never use Subic (and Clark) again? :supergrin:

    When I was visiting my wife (who was my girlfriend then) in the late '90s in Subic, we went to the dock area for a stroll after eating at Scuba Shack. The Philippine Marines who were guarding the area told us to keep away from the dock. I noticed that there were silhouettes of two huge submarines.

    I bet the "cooling off" period for the US bases is coming to an end. I wouldn't be surprised if Clark and Subic would be busy with activity again, noting the fact that Fedex and UPS quietly left the former bases.

    Actually, there were two of them there, the USNS Concord, and its sister ship the USNS San Jose (T-AFS-7). These are Combat Stores Ships assigned to the Far East. There was also an odd-looking USN ship between them, looked like a salvage vessel. And a bit of a surprise was a USMC payloader and forklift parked near our hotel, with their operators sitting in the shade.

    And the presence of a couple of Mark V boats didn't raise any eyebrows too.

    I'm always fascinated by old iron, those that run as well as those that shoot. This is an old Yanmar stationary diesel engine beside the highway in Oslob, Cebu, on what was my last long-distance drive in Cebu before I got transferred to MM.

    PAL Express Bombardier Q400:

    [​IMG]

    While this plane used external power, I observed Cebu Pacific uses a different system for short stops of their ATR-72s, the "Hotel mode" where the right propeller is stopped but the engine continues running. Rather disconcerting to watch the right propeller suddenly stop dead while the engine still idled.:supergrin:

    I know exactly where this unit is as I have examined it closely. I am from Oslob myself and this piece is located in Nueva Caceres (bario of Oslob). I am in the process of acquiring it and hopefully restore it to running condition someday.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    A pic of my 2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab powered by a Cummins Intercooled Turbo Diesel mated to a Mercedes 6 speed manual transmission. This was taken in a small city called Pahrump in the middle of the Nevada desert 65 miles NW of Las Vegas. You can clearly see the beautiful mountains behind and if you look closely on the right side you can still see some snow.<o:p></o:p>
