I Thought thehorsefarmer Would Enjoy This

A C-130 "Hercules"

cargo plane, an Air Force workhorse since 1954, was flying over the Persian Gulf on a mission when a cocky pilot in a

F-16 "Fighting Falcon" fighter flew up next to him.

The fighter jock got on the radio and 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 the radio and said, "What did you think of that?"

Puzzled, the F-16 pilot asked, "I didn't see anything. 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 sweet roll."

That C-130 pilot sure knows how to

Celebrate Life.

I think I remember getting a tour of one of those at Altus airforce base when the carnival was playing there, it was huge and no pictures of the cockpit allowed. I also remember them showing me a yellow line on the tarmac and telling me if I crossed it I could be shot...
