I saw that last night at the yahoo home page.....$100 million is a little more than I have right now......... But if we get all the TRF members to chip in........ It would "only" be $100,000 each........ I will volunteer to collect the money from everyone and then write the man a checkOriginally posted by daveyfire
If you've got $100 million sitting around, I don't see why you shouldn't spend it...
Well, since the USAF only pays $18 million for a brand new one...Originally posted by Rocketmaniac

reminds me of the guy commenting on the $1+ billion for the Stealth fighter... he commented

Yeah, how many A10-3T's can you cram up the tail pipes?
I have seen that... I managed to collect two of the fired Jato Bottles. They weighed about 80 pounds empty...Originally posted by Ryan S.

INteresting you would say that, if anyone here has seen the blue angels show they probably saw the blue angels C-130 that takes off and does some barrel rolls and stuff before hand. That thing has rocket assisted take off. Man that thing leaps right off the runway....it is kinda puttering down then all of the sudden it is 500 feet up flipping around. It is kind weird to see a cargo plane do maneuvers like that.
I was a volunteer at the airshow, so I was allowed on the run way... matter of fact... After the blue angles did their show, we road down the runway in a pick up truck at 75 to go get the white markers off the run way that the Blue Angel use as a point of referance. I was sitting on the side... people in the crowed was waving... I was waving... it was so much funOriginally posted by Ryan S.
how did you get them? The show that I saw they stayed on the C-130 never mind the fact that no one was allowed on the actual runway.
they must have been some seriously powerful motors. that C130 must be heavy, I do remember that there were 4 on each side so that helped I am sure
In the 1960s and 70s, SAC B52s carried the Hound Dog (AGM-28) nuclear air-to-surface missile, one on each wing pylon.Originally posted by Neil
I hear that Tomahawk-equipped B51s use thier Tomahawk's engines to get it going, and then refule the Tomahawks after they are in the air. Kinda like an extra coupla engines to get it going off the runway faster.
