Every time i see a picture of that - I think of this:
-Tangle-Abel-One, this is Colonel Cascio at Ultimate One.

This is Tangle-Abel-One. I read you five-by-five.

-Group Six has flown through the fail-safe point...and is on an attack course towards Moscow. It is a mistake.
-Go to afterburners and overtake and attack Group Six.

Roger. Go to afterburners and overtake and attack Group Six.

Did you all hear that order?

Overtake the Vindicators?
Who are they kidding?
All we got is a -mile-an-hour edge.
They're half way to Moscow already
You heard the man.
We go to afterburners.
And use spit to run this airplane?
By the time we run out of gas, they'll only be miles away.
Man, that's organization.
Cut the chatter.
