Jorn the Younger: CSB: When I was seven or eight, my family had caught a hop from the UK to the US on a tanker plane that was escorting a group of figher jets returning to the States. There were a couple of kids on board, and the crew invited us each in turn to sit in the central of the three control seats for the refueling system and watch as they lined up, connected, and refueled a jet. Watching through the open hatchway as a jet approached and linked up was pretty much the coolest thing I'd experienced in my life at that point./End CSB
Cybernetic: And the one where the helo chops off its own probe with the main rotor was pretty surprising.
