Oklahoma City Skydance Pedestrian Bridge





The Skydance Pedestrian Bride over I-40 just south of DT OKC cost $6.5 million to construct.  It is one of those structures shaped to resemble the state bird--the scissortail flycatcher.  The bridge highlighted by different color and color combinations, illuminates the skyline as drivers observe it from the 10 lane I-40 crosstown expressway.

Will Rogers World Airport Expansion




Will Rogers World Airport Expansion:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JC6issd54o

A $110 million multi-phase expansion and renovation project, designed by Atkins Benham Inc. and Gensler and built by Oscar J. Boldt Construction Company,[10] began in 2001.

In 2014, the Airport Trust selected Option 2a, which includes only the central terminal improvements. The $3.6M project will create a new central checkpoint in the center of the check-in hall. Two new greeter lobbies will be created where existing check points exist. The expansion will slightly reduce the space utilized by Sonic in the food court. The restrooms in the
area will also be relocated to the nearby Osage room. The Southwest ticket counters will be relocated further east.

In 2015 the airport trust agreed to proceed with the full construction of the East Concourse due to increased congestion in the existing West and Central concourses and passenger demand.

The new East expansion will also include an innovative view system composed of an elevated platform that will allow visitors to walk above the newly expanded East section and view down onto the concourse and the airside. Visitors would enter the elevated walkway in the terminal lobby non-secured side and there will also be a lounge.   This would give the terminal a final configuration with three concourses, East, West, and Central and would provide the airport with 30+ gates.  

Will Rogers World Airport terminal expansion gets final go-ahead:  https://newsok.com/article/5605696/airport-authority-gives-final-approval-to-plans-for-will-rogers-terminal-expansion.

Father Rother Shine & 2,000-seat Roman Catholic Basilica will be built in South Oklahoma City




The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Oklahoma City has chosen The Boldt Co. to serve as construction manager for the building of the Blessed Stanley Rother Shrine in Oklahoma City.

The shrine will be built on a former golf course at SE 89 between Shields Boulevard and Interstate 35. It will be the final resting place for Rother, an Okarche native who was killed in 1981 in Guatemala while serving the poor as a missionary priest. In 2016, Pope Francis declared Rother the first martyr for the Catholic Church in the United States.
In September 2017, during a Beatification Mass in downtown Oklahoma City, he became the first martyr and the first U.S.-born priest to be beatified — the last step before sainthood.

Groundbreaking on the 56-acre shrine complex is expected in early 2020 with completion by summer 2022.--Oklahoman, August 11, 2018


Blessed Father Stanley Rother

The shrine will include a 2,000-seat church, a 200-seat chapel, a museum and a pilgrim center, which will tell the story of Rother's life and martyrdom.
An event center and education building will be added in front of the main church.




The Boldt Co. will join design architects Franck and Lohsen, of Washington, D.C., and project architects ADG, of Oklahoma City.
The shrine will include a 2,000-seat church, a 200-seat chapel, a museum and a pilgrim center, which will tell the story of Rother’s life and martyrdom.

“The committee found The Boldt Company leadership to be highly capable and good communicators with a deep understanding of the mission and purpose of the shrine,” Molly Bernard, chairman of the shrine selection committee, said in a news release...

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Oklahoma City is a particular church of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church in the midwestern region of the United States. Its ecclesiastical territory includes 46 counties in western Oklahoma. The Most Reverend Paul Stagg Coakley is the current archbishop. He is the metropolitan of the ecclesiastical province which includes the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, the Diocese of Tulsa and the Diocese of Little Rock.

U.S. Air Force officials have selected Tinker Air Force Base to provide maintenance for the B-21 Raider once the bomber comes online in the mid 2020s, Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson announced Friday.

Wilson said the Air Force hasn't determined how many jobs the new mission might create, but she expects it to be comparable to the KC-46A mission, which created about 1,350 jobs at the base. Wilson said she expected the base would need to expand its maintenance facilities to accommodate the new mission, although base officials have no plans to do so.

Got to keep our opposition in check.  Hope we never have to use these planes to bomb any country; however if it keeps us safe--it accomplishes it purpose.

Corporate Welfare.  B-21... B-2 rev 0.1.

Does 2 things - puts on jamming for low frequency radar - can you spell retrofit??   Like we have done for decades...   This goes right back to WWII technology...what was that movie with Kirk Douglas where his aircraft carrier went back to Dec 7,1942?  And they had trouble flying slow enough to splash the Zeroes...?

But then I am biased, since I did some B-1 work in the past.   Nothing quite like a "Cessna 180" coming at you at 2,000+ mph to ruin your day!


Second, they are specifically designing in drone capability - autonomous flight mode.  War as video game.

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.
