Are you Hog guys getting a shot at this? This thing is cosmos!


and I'm retired, so "no" for me...

and the Hawg is completely "analog" compared to everything else in the inventory, so a transition into that would take some time.

How was the performance compared to the Eagle/Beagle?

as was the Phantom, Eagle to this, but that is part of its beauty, its simplicity, it is a killing machine with x-ray vision, hell, I think the helmet cost more than an F-4

The TSA checkpoint is always a cluster frick.


I have grown to be a bitter-man in my older age, and this is truly one of the things that pisses me off. When I go through airport security, I am convinced the terrorists have won.

One stupid motherfricker tries to blow up a plane with his shoe, and now all of us have to take off our shoes to go through security.

When I can't take more than 3 ounces of anything in a bottle to my airplane, the terrorist have indeed won. It sucks. I remember when you could take little kids to the gate so they could watch the planes land and take off. Minor things, for sure...but minor things that we used to be FREE to do.
