    I see these fairly often at work but I've never seen the A380 before.

    I get these flying over the house quite often, since I live close to Whiteman AFB.

    I had the opportunity to sit in the cockpit of a B2. The pilot explained all of the controls and the flight crew gave me a run-down of the plane. Very memorable experience.

    I got invited to their Christmas party and I swear to you that I will never drink tequila again as long as I live.

    I got to fly in one of those from Los Angeles to Sydney Australia few years back. Very big inside as well. I got to glance at the 1st class seats, I mean beds. Lol. They are huge. And surprisingly fast

    How does it compare in size to the C-5? I've never seen one.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    It is.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
