    Cool. I saw a B25 Mitchell in Seattle a few weeks ago. Summer is great for this stuff.
    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.
    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.

    The Blue Angels are out of Pensacola, Florida. So they're Navy. Nothing's cooler than being on the beaches of the Panhandle when they're flying, they're girl watching.

    What's also cool is coordinating their performance at an air show. I had the opportunity to do that last century at the air base where I was stationed. The term Prima Donna comes to mind when I think about their requests/demands. Each had to have a brand new Pontiac Trans Am waiting next to the spot where where they would park their planes when they arrived at the base. They landed, taxied to their parking spots, deplaned, jumped into the Firebirds, and sped away. Special accommodations, meals, and fawning masses awaited. They're very skilled pilots and very full of themselves. Military rock stars.
