Actually, I believe that was Gil Robb Wilson.A mile of highway will take you a mile, a mile of runway will take you anywhere. ~Steve, Blogger from Ohio
In my military and commercial experience, "oh s**t" covered it all; from a dropped ball point to just before impact. Never spoken with emotion, quiet and flat. Unlike the ridiculous Smithsonian channel Air Disaster reenactments that show the crew screaming and wild eyed like a teen age girl. Those guys got weeded out long before.The thread is 'best quotes', not most common.
That’s GOOD Pops!Coolest pilot that I every flew with was the owner and operator of the skydiving club in the next door hanger for almost 20 years. John was an old crop duster pilot. Flew all of his working life. If I was in an airplane and the wings just fell off, I would want John in the left seat. If there was a way to fly a lead manhole cover John would find it. The only time that I seen him move a little faster than slow motion was when I was in the right seat of the B-18 and he switched to two empty fuel tanks on base and both engines quit.
