So we appreciate what they do

I was surfing through YouTube tonight, and found this from an air show gone by in Idaho.  The Thunderbirds make it look easy.  This reminds us that it isn’t.  There is another video from inside the cockpit.  According to the write up that accompanied the video, the pilot ejected .8 seconds before impact.  Yikes! 

Update:  A press release on why it happened.

    Hey Mike (it’s a guess)-

    I don’t mean to clutter your comments, but I couldn’t find an email address for you. I’m writing because I’ve recently started up a blog ring for bloggers from Indianapolis. I found your blog and it is exactly what we need.

    We’re just looking for normal folks from Indy who blog about whatever they find interesting. The point is to connect all of these interesting people together.

    I don’t want to waste your time, so if you’re interested just check out Indianapolis Bloggers ( or email me if you prefer.

    Thanks so much for your time and keep up the blogging!

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
