Your Sunday Morning Jet and Rotor Noise

 A-10s and helos operating from a highway:

The annoying music ends as soon as the airplanes start flying.

(People:  The plural of "aircraft" is "aircraft'.  There is no such word as "aircrafts".)

But what's the plural of "aircraft" in Estonian?

@EB .... Has something changed with "blogger" ?? I can see the video link if the page is viewed in MS Edge, but not in Chrome. I haven't tried any other browswers ...
Anyone else seeing this or something similar?

Comrade Misfit said...

Brad, dunno, It works for me in Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Iron.

Sigh... WHY does the Air Force have to make fifty-eleven low passes? If that had been a Navy pilot, there would have been ONE low pass and plunk it on the highway. Of course the Navy has been operating from roads since the 1970s, so we have a 'bit' of experience. Friend of mine did an entire deployment in Korea flying A-7s off their highways...

Comrade Misfit said...

Old NFO, maybe they were trying to spot the closest golf courses.

DTWND said...

Such a ugly, but practical aircraft. Once described as a cannon with wings.
