    Is that the way you can tell? I thought it might have something to do with a pelican pulling a 3g vertical climb with F-18's.

    Yes, I thought Pelicans were only cleared to 2g max in all envelopes?
    Course, I might be wrong.......maybe it's the latest F43K Pelican, with the airfoil mods?

    Good old bug-smashers...

    And for the record, that's a new, top-secret mod on that pelican. Word in the intelligence community is that they are working on the SNIPER pod modification and possible some stealth upgrades. Surprised this photo leaked out.

    ;)
