Overheard in the officers' mess one evening at RAF Valley (Wales) :

Excited F-15 Strike Eagle american fighter jock : "Man, we went through the Mach Loop at Cad West at 400 knots at only 250 feet! Wow! Hedgehopping!"

Cool RAF type, very British : "I know, I saw you there :-)"

American fighter jock, in a supercilious tone : "Oh, were you on the hillside watching me? Did you get a photo of me down that low?"

Cool RAF type, very British : "No, I was in the Hawk at your 6 o'clock, doing 500 knots and 200 feet underneath you. Sadly no, I don't have a single photo of you, but I DO have a movie; it'll still be in the gun camera ;-)"
