Being intelligent is not a felony. But most societies evaluate it as at least a misdemeanour. Robert A. Heinlein, 1907 - 1988.

CTV national news last night showed the crash. Idiot Lisa LaFlamme said plane landed upside down.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

That was a perfect crash landing. The tree took all the energy of the impact out of the flight and set him down nicely.

Everyone's talking about the pilot when the tree did all the work.


The opinions of this poster are largely based on facts and portray a possible version of the actual events.

Exactly!

I personally believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and that deficit spending is sustainable forever. We really do need more Admirals in the Navy than ships and that millions of more poor immigrants will jump start the economy.

Oh I am certain the pilot had that exact result planned out in advance as he descended, just like a good pool trick shot! wink


“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman
