Sci-Fi Stuff: Airshows and Space

Hard-core science fiction fans probably know about this already, but if you are a fan of sci-fi television and movies from the 1970's, you simply must check out the photos created for the Sci-Fi Airshow (http://www.scifiairshow.com/), a creation of artist Bill George. Open for "tours" on their virtual tarmac are aircraft and spacecraft from "2001: A Space Odyssey," "Planet of the Apes," "Land of the Giants," "Space: 1999," "Battlestar Galactica," and "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea." Check out the slide-show guided tour here:

...and please take a look a this video of the new items coming soon, with craft from "Lost in Space" and elsewhere:

And speaking of "Space: 1999," HDFilms President Jace Hall is working with ITV Studios America to develop "Space: 2099," a new version of the TV series which ran from 1975 to 1977. Personally, I just hope they keep the original spaceship designs. For more information, please check out these links.
