    air force vs. navy

    The Herc and the F-18s

    A couple of F-18's are escorting a C-130 Hercules, and their pilots are chatting with the pilot of the transport to pass the time. Talk comes ‘round to the relative merits of their respective aircraft. Of course the fighter pilots contend that their airplanes were better because of their superior speed, maneuverability, weaponry, and so forth, while the putting down the Herc’s deficiencies in these areas.

    After taking this for a while, the C-130 pilot says, "Oh yeah? Well, I can do a few things in this old girl that you'd only dream about." Naturally, the fighter jocks challenge him to demonstrate.

    "Just watch," comes the quick retort.

    And so they watch. But all they see is that C-130 continuing to fly straight and level..

    After several minutes the Herc pilot comes back on the air, saying "There! How was that?"

    Not having seen anything, the fighter pilots reply, "What are you talking about? What did you do?"

    And the Herc pilot replies, "Well, I just got up, went and took a leak, stretched my legs, and got some coffee, and now I am going to shut down two engines.

    Had an Army jumpmaster tell me once he got $90 a month to jump out of airplanes, told him I got $200 a month to drop him off then went back for a cold beer and a warm bed.

    The A-10 pilot can just blow the mountain out of his way, fly thru the debris, then go back to base, reload and do it again!
    Light travels faster than sound...thats why some people appear bright before they speak

    No kidding... warthogs are flying tanks. Damn things will fly with one engine and half a wing and still sneak up on you. I got buzzed by them a few times working ICBM maintenance in Missouri... they'd come in brushing tree tops and be on you and past before you had a chance to blink.

    You are not paranoid if They are actually out to get you, however, They probably are not and you probably are.

    Yep, pilot sits in a big ass heavy titanium "bathtub" intended to protect him from ground fire... but then the yahoos decide it's better to fly them inverted when they fire that big 'ole cannon on the front. That gun actually slows the plane down when they light it up.
