I heard it had a 50mm beer cannon... it's a beauty

:popcorn:


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

"...there's still one out there..."

De-arse your bunks! Man the planes! The Fokkers are in sight! BAM ba LAMMM!
