Wing Commander Collateral Damage's Devastator bomber has come a long way over the last couple months. All the textures are much sharper and the various engine inlets and missile racks have been cleaned up. Glow from the engines is a nice cool blue, and the cockpit is clearly defined. I especially like the detailing on the main gun. Check out more pics and stats over at Crius.net.
The Space Shuttle Atlantis lifted off today - loaded with spare parts for the ISS. STS-129 should be an eleven day mission to restock the station with major spare parts. These assemblies should keep things running smoothly after the shuttle fleet is retired next year. After today's launch, there are just five planned missions remaining. The last shot below is a very lucky picture snapped by ace's parents who happen to be on a cruise ship off Florida.
