The Weekend Walkabout - Your Suggestions, Your Links

Today I realized nearly all talk shows have Free Form Fridays, Free-for-All Fridays, or something similar.  Then it hit me this might be fun to do with NORDO News.  If you are unfamiliar with how "Free Form Friday"  radio shows work, basically they are days (Friday) when listeners are allowed to call in and discuss whatever they would like.  Often callers keep their subjects in line with typical topics of the show, but ever so often other fun or crazy things work their way in due to the format.
Because this open format always has a name associated with the time frame in which it is held, I decided (with Ginger's permission) the NORDO News "free-for-all" would be called "The Weekend Walkabout".  During this time people are encouraged to send links to anything they find interesting.  These can even be things that I would otherwise never post.  And just like call radio shows, unfortunately not all things make it on the list because sometimes the lines are busy or the screener just can't handle them all.  Yet, don't let that stop you from trying.
To get the ball rolling a post was placed on our facebook page requesting people send us links to interesting aviation items.  It is from that post we received the following links; a pretty good sampling of items.
If there is something you would like to add, feel free to post it in the comments.  If you would like to discuss one or more of the links, post that in the comments also.  Whatever you do, we hope you take a little time to chill out and look at what we ended up with in a very short time frame.  Watch or view them all and you will likely have fun, shed tears, be amazed, or plan a vacation to Italy.
All the contributed links are listed below.  A few of them are from facebook therefore if you don't have a facebook account you may or may not be able to see them.  Otherwise, the rest should be available to everyone.  In the interest of keeping these random they are numbered but not titled.  Click on each number to see something new.
