Sorry folks, this is a continuation from another thread... While I was driving to work this morning (so I could afford to pay the taxes for the flyover at the Rockies home opener today) the commander of the ANG unit at Buckley AFB was on the radio explaining the logistics of the flyover. He said "the pilots knock of a couple minutes early from their 'full tactical training mission' to get to the ball park in time for the flyover". After I heard that, it made me feel a lot better that I was going to save a few bucks in taxes (and yes, I do pay a lot in taxes. I guess some think that is bragging, I don't enjoy it at all). In fact, I left work early and headed to the game so I could not only watch the flyover and my Rockies (yes, there are Rockies fans too, say Trevor Story!!!), but also the 50% (sad, but true) of non-taxpaying spectators that were there buying $8 hotdogs and $10 beers with the food stamps I payed for... I just love a good flyover! but then again I'm only about as smart as a ham sandwich! Note: Some build up their SAF post total in the several 1000's, mostly with quippy little one liners that make them feel superior to others in their replies, that's just great... I don't care if you are a 4 star general or a private, this forum should be more about sharing info, not to belittle others. I've valued what I've learned from the reasonable posters and especially the moderators on this forum, to them I say thank you and carry on.
