Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

I've seen the Vulcan flying a few times, and it was always really impressive.

These images are of T-38 USAF Test Pilot School aircraft flying faster than the speed of sound (767 mph). No they are not photoshopped. Using new NASA air to air schlieren photographic technology which shoots 1,400 frames per second, people are able to see how the airplanes create waves when air molecules begin to compress because they are flying faster than the speed of sound. These images were taken about 2,000 feet above the aircraft.

Imagine the look on the Zeke pilot's face when they fly up along side and proceed to smash in his windscreen with baseball bats...

Would be funny if one guy on either end jumped off and the lot flipped over the other way.  :ROFL:
