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.
( 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.
