    Wow this has the same premise as a movie with Scott bakula in it!
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    The B-52 didn't actually form up on the Cessna, rather stayed high above the mountains to relay messages back and forth between the Cessna and air traffic control.

    But, still. Would be quite a sight!
