    Ouch! That's harsh. I wonder where all those guys are now???? Nursing home? Once you see the
    lame act of that Swiss "Jetman" you will wish the SAAB guys would come back. Oh wait...you have
    a long range telephoto lens...you will see the speck in the sky....

    ..........while I agree (in general) the dropping/ing/ etc of politicians would be great.

    Who pays the hazardous disposal fees ?

    I'll chip in. Money well spent for once.

    I don't want to burn DC, too many cool buildings. Just turn it into a park, the capital building would probably get more done empty.

    Somewhere on a video tape, no idea what year, I filmed one of those. The guy next to me is screaming "PRESS THE CAR"!
    Ahhh, the good old days. I know it probably isn't a crowd draw but I sure miss the warbird aerobatics, smokewinder, Lefty, and the classics like Scholl and Franklin, the Eagles. Sigh.

    Actually I think the BS that they are full of would work great in the garden and is not a hazardous product.

    I miss the car drop, rumor has it, no car drop for a number of years due to our C-47's being deployed. If we did have one standing down I doubt the head jack ass would allow it to fly do to the cost.

    Good point...sequestration and all that....but I saw a privately owned Harrier at OSH....if he wasn't carrying lots of s and fuel, I bet he could lift a small car full of dummy politicians....oh wait....they are all dummies...or is it us who are the dummies for re-electing them?

    Good point. We do want to preserve the history of DC when real Americans ran the place.
    Reminds me of a joke....
    There was a terrific traffic jam on the interstate and soon someone comes walking down the line of cars saying,"Terrorists have taken congress hostage and are threatening to dump gas on them and set them on fire unless a ransom is paid."
    "How much is everyone giving?" cried a motorist....
    "About a gallon" said the walker...
