Latte Liberal Gets an Earful - viral video
This video is going viral. Remember the crazy woman who screamed at Gov Rick Scott in a Starbucks recently. Well...

CC, there's a difference between crazy and angry because someone has robbed you. You missed that difference.

CC:
Read Rule No. 6.

Re: the SubSonex video, that engine must produce power just like its size suggests, because that takeoff roll looked ridiculously long for what the aircraft weight likely is.

CC, I have a reciprocal blogroll.

LRod, more a Rule 2-C violation.

But yeah, long takeoff roll. Reminds me of some of the 1st gen fighters or something that Republic made.

I'm imagining an interview for life insurance.

"Yes, a home-built jet. I plan on flying it at airshows. Wait! Where are you going?"

"...something that Republic made."

Jeff Ethel said in his P-47 video that the Thunderbolt needed to be right at over-the-fence speed over the fence, because it had a long rollout. He went on, "in fact, it was said that if you could build a runway around the world, Republic could build an airplane that used all of it."
