3StratMan: everyone on board's minds


"I don't think a plane this large can generate enough lift to keep us up in the air at this angle."

Every time I see this picture, I always marvel at it, and wonder what the hell was going through everyone on board's minds, and out of their mouths, at the moment that picture was taken.


Airplane parts.

"You arrogant ass... you've killed us!"

I worked for a post production facility that edited a bunch of spots for an ad agency here. They did some spots either for Kroger or the Titans. I believe during the first year of the stadium being open they had an actual film crew down on the field shooting all the festivities.

They did a flyby of two F-16s( I think) and a B-2 steath bomber.

I've seen the raw footage and the bomber actually flew through the stadium... not over it. It was loud.

StrikitRich: "Bout 22 years ago I was doing my long cross-country for my commercial pilot's license in a Cessna 152 and was on a leg from Savannah, GA to Florence, SC. While I was VFR, I was in contact with the air route controller and squawking something. I wasn't very high due to the building cloud cover and was informed that I would soon be in the vicinity of a flight of 3 B-52s below me, I think by 2500 or 3000 feet. Anyway, I could see them, but they couldn't see me and the controller told it had them 'concerned.' Anyway, had a great view of them as they crossed below and ahead of me at about 3000'.


Heh, my first solo cross country flight, I had a controller advise me I had MIG traffic on my 6. And, sure enough, one burned past my Cessna.

Turned out there was an airshow he was enroute to...

The B2s are an impressive sight no matter where you see one...in my case the first one I saw nearly rolled my Toyota...and he was just taxiing.

Rent Party: From some of these other images, I have to retract my "smells like bulshiat" assessment and convert it to "B-52 pilots are farking nuts."


That's a little closer. A women I know has been dating a former B-52 pilot for a while, and he's apparently taken one through the Grand Canyon on two occasions. One time authorized as part of an exercise where they were testing evasion tactics, another time not so much. Not over the Grand Canyon, in the Grand Canyon.

I think, as a general rule, military pilots are not exactly sane.

i lived on the Intrepid for 3 years and saw some crazy shiat.
Years later (1990 ) I was invited on a Tiger Cruise on the Independence, Hawaii to San Diego.
B52 pilots came past us on both sides, low to the water, wicked awesome.
Flight Boss over the PA, " These guys are crazy ! "

I've got it on film somewhere, but showed the pictures last week.
