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 here's one.
Which prototype fighter aircraft built and flown in the 1980's used over 10,000 parts that had already seen a lot of supersonic service time in 3 different other aircraft?
