How much money would I pay to attend this? It would need exponential notation to express it.

SciFi Airshow

is the brainchild of artist Bill George, who I'm guessing is almost exactly the same age as me, since I recognize every single spaceship he's created (I wrote about this a couple of years ago

, but this video is new). It's all based on TV shows from the 70s (and some movies, too), and the pictures of the Eagle and Hawk from Space:1999 nearly break my heart. But the good news? The show's gonna be revived

. I know the original got a lot of grief, and reboots can be frowned upon, but I really like some of them, and I refuse to judge something before I give it a chance. And man, I'm willing to give this a chance. As long as they keep the Eagles looking even close to the same, I will sit and watch them fly all day long. They're still pretty much my favorite scifi spaceship ever made.
