A C-130 Maritime Patrol
Maritime patrol in the Gulf
A C-130 was lumbering along on maritime patrol when a cocky F-16 flashed by. The jet jockey decided to show off.
The ' hot shot' told the C-130 pilot, 'watch this!' and promptly went into a barrel roll followed by a steep climb. He then finished with a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier.
The F-16 pilot asked the C-130 pilot what he thought of that?
The C-130 pilot said, 'That was impressive, but watch this!'
The C-130 droned along for about 5 minutes and then the C-130 pilot came back on and said 'What did you think of that?'
Puzzled, the F-16 pilot asked, 'What the hell did you do?'
The C-130 pilot chuckled. 'I stood up, stretched my legs, went to the back, took a leak, then got a cup of coffee and a cinnamon bun.'
When you are young and foolish - speed and flash may be a good thing.
When you get older and smarter - comfort and dull is even better!
