    I saw that show. It was worth watching again.
    "We have to find someone who can not only fly this plane, but who didn't have fish for dinner."

    Crooow:This music would work better with women in bikinis shaking all over the place. I guess that's true of any music really.

    Notice the wing wheels dropping off? When they land pick-up trucks race alongside and the wings lower into the truck bed, then when both trucks and plane have stopped the re-attach the wing wheels.

    Saw a fatal accident with a U-2 while in Osan, sucker took off and literally broke in two pieces about 200 feet up.
