          F-16 is still one of the sexiest planes out there these days.
          An army is power. Its entire purpose is to coerce others. This power can not be used carelessly or recklessly. This power can do great harm. We have seen more suffering than any man should ever see, and if there is going to be an end to it, it must be an end that justifies the cost. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain

                But they are not bristling with bombs or dead babies! The anti war crowd were being dishonest with me!!!

                Great photos. Bad weather or not, its still a fantastic looking aircraft. Hopefully the weather will allow the full display in Salthill.

                        Great pics. Saw them in May when I was on Annual Training at Ft. Dix. They did the airshow at McGuire AFB - incredible hair-raising stuff. Got to see the stealth bomber flying also. Not an aerosexual by any means but impressive to look at. Hopefully the weather will improve for the show.

                            Boldly they rode and well,
                            Into the jaws of Death,
                            Into the mouth of Hell
                            Rode the six hundred.
