Back in 1973 I was stationed in Thailand, working on RF-4C aircraft. The plane was powered by a pair of J79GE-15 turbojets that provided it with about 34,000 pounds of thrust in afterburner. They were also, arguably, some of the smokiest engines ever attached to an airframe. Now, you ask, what bearing does that have on a blog? Just this, many blogs do the same thing, blow hot air at a high speed and smell of exhaust smoke. I promise to do my best to provide my opinion without the hot air and the smoke. Of course, if you think my opinion is hot air and smoke, that’s fine too! The only thing I ask is if you leave a comment, do so respectfully, and I will reply in a like manner. Let’s start this adventure together. Chocks out, proceed to the next Marshaller.
