____ One of those, A P51, & a YAK Any or all. I would go finish my pilot education.


____ Update to above, While in the service of my country I did get a huge amount of stick time in this very plane.


____ Good thing the government was buying the gas, these things drank a lot of gas during a flight. The first Pod you see is a radome, the one under the fuselodge is a 300/gal drop tank, plus another 275 in the body.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Sproket____why would you need those thigns unless you were planning on overtaking a country and killing alot of peopel in the process. Plus, do you know how much fuel those things probably burn??


I heard that they are building a helicopter engine that runs on diesel. I want one of those. i don't know how much aviation fuel costs but I betr it is alot more than diesel.

I'd have the Osprey so I could fly around in it pretending it was a Firefly.

I hear the fly by wire tends to flip out and the ship flips over and crashes, ever so often, so I would wear a crash helmet.
