Hmm, that pilot has a future deicing wings of C17s in Thule, Greenland. Hope he likes snow.

Just strap some rockets to it like they do for the C-130. If you have been to an air show you might have seen it but that is the sane public version, here's the real deal during testing for Credible Sport. If you're unaware Credible Sport was an operation where they were going to land a C-130 inside a soccer stadium next to where they were holding the hostages in Iran. The crash at the end is caused by failure of the rockets pointing down never firing. The takeoff is around the 1 minute mark, looks like it rolls about half the length of the plane and it's in the air.

Well when Obama cuts the military budget by half a trillion dollars I guess we'll be seeing Soviet and Red Chinese aircraft land. Somebody's gonna have to enforce martial law. :shock: ( OK. sorry, political comment in the wrong area.) :?

20 years ago I was flying with an ex-Air Force figher jet trainer pilot in a Great Lakes aerobatic trainer biplane. Van Zant Airport, out across the river from Lambertville. I would split the cost of renting the airplane with the guy. He took me and other guys through a complete aerobatic routine, unforgettable fun.

He was trying to establish a thing called "MIG Alley", where he would take a Korean War era MIG to airshows with the theme to teach kids about drug abuse and constructive alternatives. It never panned out due to expenses and finding a sponsor I guess.

Always wanted to do that again and maybe pursue some flying lessons.

When I worked so much at the Jersey shore, I loved seeing the tankers make big loops out over the Atlantic from McGuire. Pilot training runs.
