I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
I'm pretty sure they used up your money about 13 trillon dollars ago. By the time you drive on the first public road or drive past a school your 16,000$ tax contribution is used up. Unless you make over 2 million dollars a year, you can stop worrying about how the govt wastes "your" money.
Also a 4-6 hour flight from MO. dont these things go about 1300 mph. its more like a 40-60 min flight.
I think there is a restriction on planes breaking the speed of sound when flying over populated areas, so most likely they would stick to around 600-650 mph. I could be wrong, but I think the rules state this unless there is a need (such as defense).
Yeah I asked my future brother in law, who is an officer in the AF what would happen if they broke the sound barrier and he said every window w/i like a few mile radius would be smashed if it was close enough to the ground. This plane normally operates well above 30,000 feet.
Mythbuster's had a really cool episode about this. Adam actually flew in a F-18 Blue Angel (I believe) and they had a hard time actually breaking the glass windows. It is mainly a pressure difference causing the glass to break, so if you have an average size house you should "probably" be ok. This website says what issupersonic airspace, so not sure they will be able to break Mach 1. It's actually interesting info and something I didn't know until looking for the rules.
I remember about a year ago they had a jet flying over the Detroit River for the boat races. It was pretty awesome, my friend and I thought it was going supersonic but it was actually just water vapor creating a neat effect. Anyway I asked my future brother in law about that and he said it would have smashed car windows, so when you say average house, do you mean the bigger it is, the less likely the windows go?
Because if its smaller things with windows that get smashed, my brother in law is still right, if not he's wrong and I get to mess with him over it.
Your brother in law is right, the smaller the space, the more likely it will break the windows due the pressure. With a bigger space you are more likely for the pressure difference to be less drastic, anything can happen, it is just less likely to occur. One of the interesting things on the show was that they had wine glasses sitting on a table next to the house and they didn't even move, due to the open nature of the glass.
Cool, thanks for the info. Pretty interesting stuff.
The B2 bomber isn't capable of supersonic flight so this whole discussion doesn't matter in this instance.
You just ruined our entire discussion with your stupid facts (/s). At least this can still apply to other aircraft, just not the B-2.
Sorry didn't mean to bring everyone down. Maybe just this one time for us it will go supersonic to try and keep up with Denard.
Does this mean that Denard is breaking the law, I hope the press boxes were designed with reinforced glass, b/c we don't want anyone to get hurt from the glass exploding.
formative years just off-base at Tinker Field in Midwest City, Oklahoma. At the time, it was the largest SAC base in the world. It was the height of the cold war, and the B-52s were still in the air 24 hours a day. The surrounding communities were also chosen to be the first civilian areas exposed to sonic booms. We would be in school, and the building would vibrate. It was especially exciting if we were on the playground. I don't recall any broken windows, though. I could have saved Mythbusters the expense.
We had multiple B-52 flyovers daily. My collie would run clockwise around the yard when they took off, and counterclockwise when they landed. When they passed almost directly over our house, they were at about 500 feet.
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
I currently live right next to Ellington Airport (the NASA AFB) and we have T-38s flying over our house all day. The ones that get bad are the F-15s, as they usually fly over in groups and they are extremely loud (they shake the whole house). The interesting thing is my Sheltie (mini-collie) could care less, she will occasionally look around as to what is making the noise, but will just go on playing as usual.
I grew up in Brook Forest. Loved hearing the jets from Ellington
In Meadowgreen, Pineloch and Hwy 3. I love the jets too, I am an Aerospace Engineer so I usually have to drop everything and run outside to see the planes fly over.
I promise I don't mean to be a smartass but B-52's aren't capable of supersonic flight either although I'm sure they can be really loud.
I should offer my services to the U.S. Air Force as an information officer or something because I ought to get paid for this stuff.
I know they say it's stealthy, but I don't think we'll have a hard time seeing it.
Fireworks? Stealth B2 Bomber?
USA! USA! USA! USA!
I am pretty pumped up right now...this will be sweet
I enjoy any acknowledgement of bad-assery. B2 bombers are bad ass. This whole Saturday is going to be bad ass.
Intensity is a lot of guys that run fast.
Freaking Christmas. I'm glad my kids are coming, it'll be cool to watch it thru their eyes

It's gonna be so bad ass the rain drops will just have to go around. Not today, rain drops... not today.
"Thanks Christopher I will get on it ASAP.... Happy Easter to you as well!! Go Bucks!! jt"
The B-2 isn't even capable of breaking the sound barrier. The flyover is a training flight with a specific time on target at a certain altitude and airspeed, similar to a lot of other training flights.
Accelerate Your Life
I can tell you that it's just as fun for us as it is for the crowd....I've done several flybys over sporting events, and the best part of it all is talking with the people in the crowd afterwards when we make it to the game......
I actually contacted MI administration in an attempt to do a flyby over MI stadium for a MI/ND game (brother's a ND grad--I'm a life long MI fan), but I shipped off to a desk job before I could complete the deal.....
I fly F-16s and here's a quick video of my flyby at the Boston Red Sox Game 1 World Series game in 2004 taken from a fan in the stands and posted to YouTube....
It would have been awesome to fly over the Big House.........hopefully one of the B-2 pilots is a MI fan at least!!!
Great video from Fenway, where I have enjoyed many a game. Must have been a trip to do a World Series flyby! And I commend you on trying to work out a flyby at the Big House - I always hope the pilots are fans.
Don't f*ck with America. Especially at night.
They no longer call me Bisbiño
In what is I'm sure a "super cool story bro" moment, I actually had the privilege of seeing a B2 fly directly underneath my plane in a cross-country flight at about 38,000 feet. Apparently they pilot of my plane had been in contact with the B2 crew because he announced the flyby just as it happened.
Seeing one of those planes up close was remarkable.Strategic bombers are so intense.
However, the heavy work is still done by the venerable B-52. It's been in service since 1955, and will still be flying for at least another quarter of a century. Nothing beats a flyby by a BUFF - Big Ugly Fat Fellow... (actually the phrase is more colorful, but this is a family blog).
I saw a B2 at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base (The only cool thing in Ohio). It blew me away how big that plane is. I also saw a B2 flyover at an Air Force Academy game, very weird seeing a silent plane fly over.
