" who are the best pilots then? Fighter guys or tubeliner folks? "

I'm sure most have heard this before, but for those that havent....

A F16 was escorting a C 130 on a long flight and got bored so he pulled in front of the 130, got on the radio and said 'Watch this!' He then did a couple of ailerons rolls, pulled vertical, did a loop around the 130, then pulled up along side again with a huge grin on his face, and asked the 130 pilots what they thought about that.

Not to be outdone, the 130 captain said 'watch THIS!' For 5 minutes the F16 pilot sat there but nothing happened. Finally the 130 pilot came back on the radio and asked the 16 pilot what he thought. He said he didnt see anything, what was so special? The 130 pilot replied.......

"I got up from my seat, walked back to the galley, had a drink and a nice lunch, stretched my legs, and visited the head, and had a smoke, what do you think about that?"

Not another word was spoken on the radio   Smiley


That is dangerous and exciting. Smiley
