The Global Hawk

An Amazing Aircraft
This is a photo of the Global Hawk UAV that returned from the war zone recently under its own power. It is a remotely-piloted aircraft.
It flew back to the US by itself by a pilot who was in a warm control panel at Edwards AFB.

It can taxi, take off, fly a mission, return, land and taxi on its own. No blackouts, no fatigue, no relief tubes, no ejection seats, and best of all, no dead pilots and no POWs.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
I read once that you should never argue with a fool because someone watching might not be able to tell the difference. That’s good advice.

Joke of the Day

When at work:

When I take a long time, I am slow.
When my boss takes a long time, he is thorough.

When I don't do it, I am lazy.
When my boss doesn't do it, he is too busy.

When I do something without being told,
I am trying to be smart.
When my boss does the same, that is initiative.

When I please my boss, I am brown-nosing.
When my boss pleases his boss, he is co-operating.

When I do good, my boss never remembers.
When I do wrong, he never forgets.

When I make a mistake, I am an idiot.
When my boss makes a mistake, he's only human.

When I am out of the office, I am wandering around.
When my boss is out of the office, he's on business.
