    Incredible Jet Landing

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    First time I saw a Harrier was at Keesler AFB, MS. I was in my dorm room, about 50 yards from the end of the flight line where the planes would leave the runway. I was looking out my window, on the 3rd floor, and saw this jet coming down the runway about 50' off the deck. I could see it slowing down, but not loosing altitude. I thought, this jet is gonna stall and crash! When it got to the end of the runway, it hovered, turned 180 degrees, angled upward and took off like an arrow from a bow. I didn't have a clue jets were capable of doing that! WoW!! I think this was around 1974 or so.

    there is another amazing feat of a pilot bringing in an F15 with the right wing totally missing. He had no idea it was gone as the fuel coming out clouded the area. He had had a midair with another jet. All survived.

    These folks are professionals at what they do. Flying with some of the Heli crews in VN sure made me a believer.
