any knowlege about the AMX 50t series heavy tanks?
the AMX 50 (official designation) or AMX-50 was a French heavy tank designed in the immediate post Second World War period. It was proposed as, in succession, the French medium, heavy, and main battle tank and incorporated many advanced features. However, it was to suffer cancellation in the late 1950s due to unfavourable economic and political circumstances combined with delays in development.
Wow, I already have logged around 18-20 hours of flying. Back in March of 2013 I took my introductory flying lesson on my Birthday just out of whim.
Right away I knew I loved it and flying went on my to do list. Then, for 2 years it remained there and on the top of my head before I had the chance and resources to start pursuing it.
So, I started on 5th March 2015 with my first flying lesson!
It was super exciting. Me and my instructor took off from Palo Alto airport and flew over the hills towards Half Moon Bay which happens to be one of my practice areas. He let me do some basic maneuvers to get the feel of the plane. I was excited as well as terrified at the same time. I’m kind of afraid of heights and had the feeling that the plane might just fall off from the sky :)
To add to that I had started to fly in a Cessna 172SP with a G1000 system. They also call it as a glass cockpit. You have two large screens in front of you and a lot of things happening on it.
I must admit, it was kind of overwhelming. However, it was my very first GA flight in which I was actually controlling the plane.
Over the last two months, I have taken several lessons and I’m at a stage where few more hours of practice would make me ready for my first solo. During all this time I have had various thoughts in my mind, different feelings in my heart and lots of photos/videos in my camera and all of these continue to grow and evolve. I thought it would be cool to capture all these here in this blog.
