I live in shreveport right next to Barksdale air force base so we have B-52 flying all the time, and also some A-10 warthogs, it is awesome to be in the air in a small plane when there is a B-52 flying that is relatively close.
I don't think this incident was harmless. Officials dismissed the potential risk as very low because the plane has a small payload, but what about one of those suitcase nucs? If this was a dry run of sorts it proved that a small plane such as this will be followed but given a pass. Scary stuff. I didn't know it cost $50,000 an hour to keep one of our jets in the air? Glad no one got hurt but this was a real costly event.
I guess he thought that Cesna had warp engines. How else would he get away from two jet fighters. Frankly, I think the pilot is a perfect example of what happens when brother and sister decide to have a child...
Measure TWICE - Cut ONCE! 'Cause the Lumber Stretcher is broken! I'd throw more things away, but I'm afraid someone might want them...
