Why are you wearing night vision goggles?

I have never worn night vision goggles. Now that I think of it, that should be on my bucket list, if I had one. It feels like that’s one of those things I would buy if I had the money, just because they’re awesome, and then they’d lie around like my regular binoculars. They’re awesome too (albeit on a lower and more affordable level), but I think I only ever really needed them once, to check on my roof tiles from the opposite side of the street after a storm. But, hey! Once is better than nothing! I’m sure NVGs would be handy to … uh, hunt for slugs in the garden at night or something. Ah, the unchallenging life of suburbia …

    When I was in the military we did some rifle shooting with night-vision scopes. That was pretty cool. They were image intensifiers called “BiV” for “Bildverstärker” in typical Bundeswehr vernacular.

    If you really want to use night vision goggles, come to western Canada and fly for STARS Air Ambulance. They use ’em. You can find them at http://www.stars.ca

    I guess hes going to put glass gauges and GAMI injectors in his corsair then to avoid using 70 year old tech?

    Have to share a chuckle. Googled GAMI injectors, no surprise; googled glass gauges and found things you put in your pierced ears to stretch them. YOUR ears, not mine!

    Confusion is understandable. Chuck has previously purchased genuine worthless WWII tools to work on his project. I suppose we all have something of a blind eye for our project’s quirks.

    Very funny about the glass gauges Deja Moo of course I mean the ones for cockpits as opposed to the ‘steam’ gauges his plane would have had in WWII.
