    Neat factoid:
    Soviet-era planes had screens that would fold out of the way after takeoff. This way, they didn't have to police the airfields for junk.

    One of these days I actually hope to have a post that doesn't offend someone or isn't misunderstood. A guy can dream I guess...

    Obviously it is never funny when someone gets seriously hurt. And I hope to never see someone blown into something or god forbid blown off a carrier deck.

    However, I have watched one of my friends walk into an exhaust. She just had a dumb moment and walked right into it. AFTER we made sure that she was okay we all (her included) had a good laugh about it.

    And for karma in action Friday I was nearly blown over by exhaust. A pilot pulled into the wrong spot. I was working in the next spot (with my back to him) when I saw my supervisor pointing and screaming something. I stared at him thinking that he had finally cracked, turned around and ducked when I saw the exhaust turning right at me. I ended up doing a little half roll and ended up on my back. Again no one was hurt so it was rather funny.

    It takes a college degree to break'em;
    and a high school education to fix'em!

    I was a jet engine mechanic for 15 years, never once did I see anyone survive that, sprayed out the back and ruined the engine.
