    A C-130 was lumbering along when a cocky F-16 flashed by. The jet jockey decided to show off.

    The fighter jock 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-1 6 pilot asked, "What the hell did you do?"

    The C-1 30 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 flashy may be a good thing. When you get older and much wiser, comfort and dull are not such bad attributes to have around, now are they?

    Yeah I heard this one years ago.

    The Chinook guys used to even change the aircraft to a Chinook and a Blackhawk and mess with us.
