Bob,No one told us they were having skydivers bring in the game ball. We thought the B-1 flyby was it. So, at the cue, "And the rockets red glare..." we launched a red comet and two maroons. We looked up, and red comet was homing in on one of the two skydivers. He escaped. The comment around the firing line was, "Where the **** did he come from?" The reply, "De plane Boss, de plane" remained unspoken.More than a few folks have come up to me in the days following to comment on our targeting. We have another chance on the 7th of April.I bet the communications are better then too.Doc Bryant

Wow, an actual event. Definitely some downright poor communication in there somewhere. Someone should have really gotten dressed down for that one. All it takes is for one individual to screw up, and you've got the makings of a disaster. Not good.~Bob~http://www.avsim.com/other/usaribbon.gif

They do have some phenomenal pictures sometimes.
