In previous diaries, I bored some of you by prating about a Powerpoint presentation on the F-15 Eagle I was building to give to Pima Air & Space Museum volunteers and staff. I gave my presentation on the 21st of September, so it's about time I shared it with you here.
Someone from the museum taped the presentation and I had hoped to embed the tape here, but the recording turned out to be very poor ... the slides are out of focus, the sound is echoey, and I'm hidden in darkness off to one side of the screen.
As a fallback, I can at least show you a PDF of the slides I talked from, along with a copy of the video referenced on a slide near the end of the presentation. All that is below the fold, if you'd like to see it.
My F-15 Eagle Powerpoint slides
Update (10/12/13): Some browsers won't support the embedded PDF, so here's a direct link to it: http://slideonline.com/...
Obviously, what's missing here is the script, the comments and explanations I delivered to expand on the slideshow bullets. I realize showing you slides without notes will generate some questions; I hope to turn the presentation into an informational Air-Minded diary on the F-15 Eagle before too long, so please be patient with me.
The presentation, by the way, went very well. There were at least 60 people in the audience, and with one of two exceptions they were still awake when I wrapped up 45 minutes later. Even though preparing the presentation was a lot of work, it was totally worth the effort: I had fun talking about my favorite jet and flying days to an audience of aviation enthusiasts.
If you do have questions, ask away in the comments and I'll do my best to answer, but don't forget that I'm working on an informational F-15 diary post that will flesh out what I'm showing you here.
