Stupid Big 10, hates speed


The Best Fighter Pilot in the Air Force (An SEC Fan for sure) GONE.
Stupid Big 10, They really hate speed. 400 knots in a T-38? Gimme a break.

Pilots Disciplined For Flyover At Game

By Associated Press

The Air Force said six pilots who participated in a spectacular flyover before Ohio State’s game at Iowa on Nov. 20 had been disciplined for flying too low and too fast. The lead pilot is giving up his right to fly military aircraft. The Air Force said the four Talon T-38 trainer jets flew 16 feet above the press box at Kinnick Stadium.

About Capers Bar

I am retired Army officer. I used to fly helicopters and airplanes while I was in the Army. Nowadays, I do other things that are not so cool and sexy. I decided to write about my journey or whatever you want to call it towards running a half-marathon this fall. I have been running since 1983, I have run the Duke City full and half marathons. I don't run that fast anymore, I did win a 10K when I was 21, those days are mercifully past me. The fastest mile I have turned is a 5:05 during one of those Army physical fitness test 2 mile runs. The point I am making is that I am old, slow, and experienced runner. I named the blog after my running buddy, Bandit, an Australian Blue Heeler. He is my 3rd K-9 running buddy, the previous two dogs were black labs. I hope to write about some of my discussions that I have with Bandit in the future. I once owned, but since sold and a satirical and irreverent sports blog that was moderately successful. I was published in the left-wing national sports media by Sports Illustrated and ESPN. I am "stuck" in Alabama working for a military contractor. I am working so fricking hard to get back to Southeast New Mexico or West Texas. Fingers and toes crossed.
