John L Wrote:incidentially the best air force in the world is not the Israeli, Russians, or US Air Force. It is the US Air National Guard. Why is that, when the Guard usually has older aircraft? Well, the aircraft is only one part of the equation. It is the quality and experience of the man in the cockpit that makes the most difference. And Air Guard pilots are Very Experienced, have far more time behind the stick, and are wise old dogs.
Anyway, thanks "Q". It is nice to see someone finding these little gems.
Hmmm, wasn't George W Bush a National Guard pilot? :p
