    There are so many things they say wrong, don't get me started!

    They could say different things about the planes sometimes too.
    Every time Steve brought up Rare Bear he said the exact same things about it; "most heavily modified Bearcat in existence." And I can guarantee you he will say the same exact things about each plane tomorrow and Sunday...

    I'm also getting tired of hearing about the 2 R-3350 engined Sea Furies every time 924 (Centaurus) and Argo (R-2800) fly past.

    And the senseless drivel, about who knows what, as the Unlimited's taxied by, then started introducing the field when they were taking off on 16 where the majority of spectators could not see what was happening and were pretty much clueless what he was talking about.
