It's like once again finding that old Playboy ™ magazine you stole from your older brother when you were ten...

Styrene in my blood and an impressive void in my cranium.

You love big choppers? Be careful shouting that out in a gay bar....!?!?! :blink:  :blink:  :blink:

Chinooks are a sight I've never seen outside an airshow, thanks for sharing Cap!
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Don't wanna brag, but when I was a line service tech at the airport backing the early 1990's we had quite a few military transients visit our FBO...I got to refuel a Chinook once...those things can take a lot of gas.

Also got to see a SAAB J35 Draken up close...it was on it's way to an airshow.


Pretty cool stuff.
