    To say Asia is a powder keg would be an understatement…

    Is there hope it won’t explode or is it simply a matter of time?

    I'm glad I'm too old to be drafted.

    Ever been under a B-52 when it flies over..... even on friendly soil...it is a scary thing.

    I was a student at a college (briefly) that was near a field for B-52s and the college was in the flight path. I use to ask the administration/teachers every chance I got...did they intentionally build the school in the flight path of B-52 to keep the students in line or was it just the luck of the draw

    I agree. Living by Nellis, we see all kinds of aircraft, but even just a single B-52 will leave you awe struck.

    Ought to "accidentally" drop and detonate a live one...
    I remember thinking Clinton must have grown a pair when that happened.

    I grew up going to the airshow at NAS Lemoore. I always thought it was awesome.
    Then, I was stationed at Fort Lewis and went to the air show at McCord Air Force Base.
    B 52's F16's F 15's T 38's and a Mach .90 flyby from a B1.
    Navy airshows are good, but, Air Force sets the standard.123
