Explaining The Entabulator

Many years ago Rockwell International decided to get into the heavy duty automatic transmission business. They were getting ready to tape their first introductory video. As a warm up , the stage crew began what has become a legend within the training industry. This man should have won an academy award for his stellar performance. 

Now keep in mind, this was strictly off the cuff; nothing was written down. NO TELEPROMTER, Nothing he says is true. He had NO script! This was a rehearsal for camera, lighting and stage crew. It’s all totally meaningless drivel made up as he goes along. It has been said that this video is still utilized as a training aide for incoming Congressmen, lawyers, and White House Administrators.

Sea trials of the F-35B on the USS Wasp

These are sea trials of the F-35B on the USS Wasp. They were very successful, with 74 VL’s and STO’s in a three week period.The media and the program critics had predicted that we would burn holes in the deck and wash sailors overboard.  Neither of which happened. You will notice a sailor standing on the bow of the ship as the jet rotates.That was an intentional part of the sea trials.  No catapult… No hook…. It’s a new world out there!  The shape and scope of warfare – worldwide – just changed.  This video was made in the Atlantic, just off Newport News ( Hampton Roads),Virginia .
