Not ******, just never seen the point. I didnt realize these were used for training, so if they would have been in the air anyway then fine. I guess I never really get excited about that sort of thing.
So you think it's a waste of money or you just don't like it? You seem to be wavering.
Wow! How did he get by with that? When you can look down at the jet flying past the press box, that's too low.
As for the pilots who violated the altitude limit at the Iowa game, they weren't "IMMEDIATELY discharged." The lead pilot lost his flying privileges and eventually resigned, but the other 3 pilots continued their service with their flying privileges intact.
True, the lead pilot was not immediately discharged. He actually turned in his wings and in return the Air Force did not court martial him. He was given an Article 15 (one step below a court martial) and lost his wings. All the other pilots (more than 3) lost there instructor qualifications and had to earn them back. So yes, the other pilots are still flying but they all have a black mark in their records that will follow them for the rest of the Air Force careers.
Lets get one of these to fly over:[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlBseJxd6MM&feature=related[/ame][ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SDzjzwLYag]Antonov 124 the biggest aircraft in the world Jacek Seroka - YouTube[/ame]
Hard to beat the A-10s that flew over the last year at Arrowhead. I nearly lost my stuff.
I will never forget the year Dubuque had A-10's fly for the 4th of July demonstration. They used to have "targets" and such on the river and various aircraft would perform combat maneuvers in a simulated air-ground battle. I recall a few years watching old P-51's which where great but I lost my **** when the A-10's rolled in. Such an amazing tank!
Oh, the other one I loved was walking out of my house to the garage and having a B-2 do a low pass right overhead.
Since it's a college football game and 'they got a flyover'. Trainers are used for the 'non priority, but still worthy' flyovers. Like the Nascar Nationwide race this last weekend. I've seen the trainers a lot more often recently. Kinda screws me up, my wife was getting used to me batting 1.000 on identifying combat/transport planes and .900 on helicopters for flyovers, but these trainers are effing me up.
It's messing with the belief she was FINALLY starting to give into...I really do know everything. (FTR, I don't, but you married guys know what a GOLDMINE it would be to have a wife believe you knew everything)
GD trainers...messin with a man's flow.
You do know that the T-38 is basically a Northrop F-5 Tiger II Right? Does your wife own a Jane's?
No. Try food stamp abusers, **** animal research, congressman paychecks and Pakistani mango farmers. At least the amount JP-8 used for the fly over is probably a fraction of the amount used on a daily basis world wide. *****... god forbid the American public actually enjoy a supersonic fighter/trainer flying overhead since you know, human aviation has only been around since the Wright brothers. Icarus is rolling in his grave of wax and feathers right now.
