    ...the fockers were out on the line doing high-power turns after midnight last night! Started around 10:30, finally shut down damn near 1AM.

    And of course, Murphy being his usual self, my VOQ room faces the flightline, less than 1/4 mile away... and I had a test today.

    Sometimes singing makes me feel better, if its good enough for James Bond, its good enough for me.

    I like it. Singing in the rain, that's what I say. It's raining here in Okie-homo, I gotta walk back to the VOQ... might as well sing.

    Oh, I was trying to be all serious-like. You mocked my pain. Now I'm mad. Screw you guys, I'm goin' home!














    :D

    I jsut love the sound of jet engines at night.

    Many years ago, my barracks was at the end of the flight line. Nothing like trying to sleep while F-4 Phantoms are doing touch and gos, afterburner and all.:eek1: The only plane worse than them was the B series Harriers doing verticals.

    B-1 is one loud mutha.

    U-2's are pretty obnoxious as well.
