  •  Did you ever fly (0+ / 0-)

    a B1?

    I'm just curious if those would have been easier to fly on the crews in these scenarios.

      I know people that flew it.

      They liked the airplane but said it could kill you pretty easily.

      Too much angle of attack and it will pitch up violently, and you won't be able to recover from it.

      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!

        I understand that, like fighters, those can still fly upside-down. Not so with the BUFF.
