One thing you should never ask a guy or gal is "are you a pilot?" If they are they'll let you know. If they're not, don't embarrass them.

Reheat?

A buddy recommended I take a look at AirForces Monthly, but in the first feature I read the author uses the term 'reheat'. I guess he meant afterburner - does anyone say reheat anymore?

That's an excellent question. An illegal order can and should always be disobeyed or ignored, on the simple grounds that it is an illegal order.

Still baffled;- in my post I asked a question, I didn't make a statement.

There's a difference. I'm no lawyer, but very much doubt that asking a question constitutes either libel or slander.

Q-Codes;- a brilliant, ground-breaking idea - in 1909. Possibly not that relevant, or even useful, more than a century later? Discuss.
