So this morning, FOX News has an on air tribute wishing the USAF a happy 68th birthday with a four ship fly by.................................of Navy F-18 Hornets!!
I guess with all the cut backs the Air Force doesn't have a four ship left to get air born!!

    Regarding the military and the press, all military and military aircraft look alike to the press.

    Yep, Happy Birthday to the Air Force.

    I remember drill Sgts in the Army saying get yer XXXX hands outta yer pockets, you can't wear AF gloves in the Army. Or this ain't the freaking AF, get your XXXXXXXXXX hands outta yer pockets private! Get on down and knock them out (push-ups).

    Marine Corps and Army seem to make more of a deal of their Birthday than the Air Force. I didn't even know until the Generals email letter came out today.
    Happy Birthday Fly Boys.
