    There are no routine ejections. All the training in the world doesn't prepare you for the real thing.

    military flys so many sorties a day it seems like more should crash. good mainentance by the crews & well trained pilots keeps the numbers pretty low.

    That's why it's such big news when one goes down. It happens so seldom.

    I'll try, but I'm probably wrong. Since it's called the RNoAF, is the answer the "Royal No Air Force"? :D

    My house is directly under the flight path they take from an AFB nearby. It bugs me out when they practice flying under radar. Usually just after dusk, and the planes fly so low and so slow it is fucking disturbing. Usually they go over high enough that the planes are tiny, but when they fly low, they things are as big as my garage, and flying directly over it.

    This is actually a better video. Old as fuck, but the narrator will remind you of school movies as a kid.
