The first one looks like a dog impersonating a cat who tries to look like a dog.

Some of our military aircraft are so old that it would be an honest mistake. But I do like the F-16 and the Marchetti SF.260, much more so than this F-35 political nonsense.

At least it's more decent in civil aviation, we learn on Cessna 150s. Ahem, right. ;)

I still remember some time ago, I was playing ms flight simulator. I picked the concorde, flew straight north and dived steeply into the small community where I spent 2 years in GP.

Great fun. (The flying part. Not the GP)

Pibbur who admits that in general he had significant problems landing any aircraft safely on a runway.

The Concorde must be fun to fly as a passenger, probably more stressful to fly as a pilot or an engineer... have you seen the number of consoles and buttons in there? Even a geek like me would shy away from this. And I bet you don't even get Champaign in that part of the plane.

GP as in General Population (*)? They went easy on you after burning all those people... But true enough, the landing part is the most difficult.

(*) that's my reference from Prison Break, it felt more relevant than the other one I have from the 1966 Grand Prix movie, but maybe it's something else entirely?

Pibs, you forgot to mention that this doesn't apply to Australia, where the risk would be much higher!! :p :)

Now that was funny but for those who really want to know why. :LOL:
Because hot dogs are sold by the pound, and standard-sized hot dogs sold in stores weigh 1.6 ounces, so of course, ten is the perfect number for a package. This started in 1940 and remains so today.
