Iran's deputy industry minister shot dead
The Telegraph ^ | November 11, 2013 | Reuters

Posted on 11/11/2013 11:00:27 AM PST by Brad from Tennessee

An unidentified attacker has shot dead an Iranian deputy minister of industry in Tehran, the state news agency IRNA reported, in what appeared the first reported killing of a senior central government official in years.

Safdar Rahmat Abadi was shot in the head and chest as he got into his car in the east of the capital, IRNA said, quoting witnesses as saying the attack occurred at about 7:50 p.m. (1620 GMT).

"Investigations show that two shots were fired from inside the vehicle," the agency quoted a police official as saying.

"That two shells were found inside the car shows a strong likelihood that the assailant was inside the car and in conversation with Mr Abadi. There was no sign of struggle at the scene of the killing."

Roger that :-)
You have my utmost admiration for the service you’ve performed in duty to our country. Have you flown in the capacity as USAF pilot? I would love to show you something that you’d find most interesting regarding my new web site, called “The Wright Stuff” that will be going on line within a week. I take it for granted that you are cognizant of the play on words in my web site title with the “Right Stuff” written by Tom Wolfe, made into a movie about the aviation flyboys who became the original seven astronauts. I’ve already showed it to several veteran pilots and they were quite impressed. Please let me know if, when you have a some free time.

Yes, that would be nice to see, but I was a controller, not a pilot.

Makes no difference. This is an amazing bit of technology where you can see images in full 360 degree panorama. It is absolutely mind-boggling to see the astronauts on the moon in the full sweep of a panorama. A very good illustration would be the video of the application on my YouTube channel where you can view the cockpit of the Airbus 380 in every single direction zoom in/ out up down/around

If you feel comfortable downloading these programs then you'll be absolutely amazed at what you'll see. I've got over 200 different cockpits from aircraft since WW2 and especially my favorite the SR-71 which works exactly like the You Tube video.

You need to download the link below and QTVR (Quick Time Virtual Reality) software from Apple already included in the Quick Time download. Once you've downloaded the software let me know and I'll send you any aircraft you request. B-36, B-25, Mustang P-51 The Best and the greatest SR-71 cockpit.
