You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

    Click on the "What's new" at the upper left on the SNOPEs web site and scroll down. You will find a picture of an airliner taxiing past the burned out wreckage of another.

    The big ugly green face is the "REMOTE LINKING FORBIDDEN" picture.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Not sure where that one is...but when I flew through Iceland, when we were taxi-ing in and out of the terminal there was a plane that was burned up. Looked like they used it for training evolutions, they had it pretty well held in place.

    Should have seen some of the looks on the flight, I sat there and snickered the whole time.

    No, not quite the right color... The expression is about right, though...

    I thought it was working last night....oh well....

    Changed it to just a link....
