I reckon Zaph will know this one,I'll be very disappointed if he doesn't.What was a sort of standing joke in the USAF about a failed PAR (Precision Approach Radar) type of landing?

If you've never listened in one of these,it's what they do when amongst the things the ILS isn't working.The radar controller talks them in from 30 or miles out like this.........'XXXXXXX you are 30 miles from touchdown,on glideslope,on centreline'. 'XXXXX you are 29 miles from touchdown,on glideslope,slightly left of centreline' etc etc until they're on the runway.

The joke is along the lines of 'At the end of a PAR talkdown,I broke cloud cover.........'

Ok, I admit this one was pretty obscure. The program was Bold Orion, it was an ALBM. On its last launch it successfully intercepted a satellite for the first time. It came within 4 miles, but that is close enough with a nuke.

Not going to ask a question about this. Kind of interesting though. A C-141 towing an F-106. The tow aircraft had to lift off before the "glider".

I liked it. It was fun. I don't expect much from a war movie anymore.

I read Bat 21 in 7th grade. In 1983 I attended one of Col. Hambleton's lectures while I was going to SERE school.

What Navy aircraft was the B-66 derived from?
