    "bucth o here"????

    Respect the man enough by at least ATTEMPTING to spell his name right.


    Lt. Cdr. Edward "Butch" O'Hare deserves better.

    Most of the time, misspellings are just annoying. I'm not great at grammar or spelling but I'm not going to disrespect a hero by butchering their name.

    Put in some effort before you start typing with your elbows.

    You are an idiot.

    It was a sportive pictorial response to Cosimo's perspicacious reply to your inquery of Lt. Commander Edward Henry "Butch" O'Hare's final action while he was leading the U.S. Navy's first-ever nighttime fighter attack launched from an aircraft carrier.

    Misspelling and typos are one thing... blatant, skull crushing laziness is another.

    "bucth o here" is not phonetically close to the target and your sentences are built in the voice of a third grader.

    You're kidding yourself if you think it's an honest case of misspelling.
    It's laziness.

    Take it as constructive criticism.

    Not if they hit the top/sides of the canopy, plexyglass doesn't add much protection, and there were a few examples of these tough a/c being taken down in such a way. (in fact it was the pilot, not the plane that was taken out) Granted this is an unlikely type of hit, but it did happen.

    Most, if not all, of the people on this forum who use English as a second
    language do better than you do, fly boy. Marcel is Dutch, V2 and Wurger
    are Polish..... even the Aussies (who have a language all their own) do
    better that you. I'm beginning to think like TO..... I think you're putting
    us on...... If not, then I have to agree with Der Adler. Our present school
    system is in deep do-doo. You might try "preview post" before you hit the
    submit button.
