...About a month ago we were at the Shaw AFB open house, and we decided to grab some lunch - a palm sized pizza that ran about $8, but I digress. Craig asked if we could sit under one of the planes to eat and we headed for a KC-135 a hundred or so feet away with him carrying the pizza. He never saw an F-16 from the Viper East demo team (9th AFs 'hey, watch this' crew)come in from his left, about 100 feet off the deck and just under supersonic. I didn't have enough time to warm him and could only hope for the best. The F-16 comes blasting past - that gentle whoooshing sound followed by a God-almighty ka-BOOM. The lad jumps 6" in the air, as does the pizza, but never misses a beat as he recovers the pizza on a paper plate and keeps walking, eyes about a foot wide and looks at me and says, "Boy, that was loud!" |
* Was surprised
* Recovered nicely from the surprise
* Saved the food.
I submit that shows the making of a true USAF pilot.
