"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

That's a flier - not just a pilot.  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

"The potential for things to go wrong was reasonably high." Totally deadpan. If that man is not a test pilot within 5 years, I'll buy everyone here a meal*

That was an extremely well executed, low level, in-flight arrestment in the short field gear.  That approach and landing took one hell of a lot of finesse...

That's not just a flier, that's an AUS flier; that's characteristic AUS deadpan.
