I saw those guys... at least two of them... they put on a nice show, some barrel rolls and flips... they were Burning up there so I yelled, "Finally our tax dollars going to good use!"

Your freedom to be at an event like Burning Man and yell shit like that in English is your tax dollars being put to good use.
How much tax do you even pay?

What a great view! Though I'd like to see the view when they flew pretty low over the city and then did a vertical climb.

Too bad they didn’t sonic boom the place.

If you have never been privy to crack-of-dawn sonic boom-boom, it is truly epic. No words can describe.

I’ve been through several. Mostly on China Lake in the Mohave but also two Space Shuttle double whammy’s.

when I was a kid, they were fairly common around here, we are 30 ish miles from a NORAD base, and others in the general area.
Yeah, I remember running outside when we heard them, to see a "Jet airplane"......

Was that during your youth, like, before electricity?

I grew up in Albuquerque and we would get boomed regularly in the 1960's. Then I stopped hearing them. Somebody must have decided booming a city of 200,000 was a bad idea.
