    We had a "terrain clearance light" that could be aimed from the cockpit.

    Sometimes on night low-levels people on Lake Powell would try to spotlight us - then we'd shine that light back at them.

    If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
