Post Next Air show

Just received this from Wasgington; enjoy it. Zareh

Following from a highly reliable source inside the Capital Beltway:

AP Wirenews:

Citizens of Afghanistan are reportedly looking forward with great
anticipation to reports of an international air show to be held in the skies over their nation.

An unnamed official informed us that "Now the rest of the world will look upon our beloved city with great honor just as they do Farnborough, England and Paris, France," referring to the sites of two other famous international air shows.

The exact date and time of the upcoming Kabul International Airshow has not yet been announced. It is believed that event organizers feel that such an announcement would detract from the fun of the celebration by "spoiling the surprise."

Unlike most air shows the Kabul Airshow will feature almost no static ground displays but will have an unusually high number of aerial demonstrations and fly-bys. "We are most pleased by this feature of our air show. Instead of a lot of different kinds of airplanes just sitting around on the tarmac, the aircraft attending our show will actually be up in the air demonstrating what they do best!", Associated Press reporters were told.

Participation will probably be largely by aircraft of the United States Air Force and Marine Corps. including appearances by F-15's, F-16's, A-10's, B-52's and Apache helicopters. It is rumored that opening ceremonies will feature a tomahawk-cruise fireworks display. A few B-2's, and F-117A's may also help out in some unseen capacity.

Several other counties have expressed an interest in sending
representatives. These include all nineteen nations in the NATO alliance as well as Australia. The excitement generated for this gala event has even prompted the Israeli Air Force to apply for participation.

Of course, no one is more excited than the Afghan people themselves. Great numbers of them are in the streets of Kabul looking constantly heavenward in gratitude for the historic event which will soon take place in their skies.

It has been observed that some are so concerned about missing the show that even as they bow to the East they keep snatching worried glances towards the West. Thousands, in fact, have been seen leaving the city and fleeing to the mountains carrying food and blankets -- obviously eager to get a good vantage point for the air show, and to make a picnic of it.

And after the airshow's over, we can open the new 10,000-hole par 2 Kabul Country Club. Don't like the course? Just wait a minute -- a couple of carpet-bombing runs will change it!

Thoughtfully provided, of course, by a single pass by the boys at the 16th Special Ops Wing of Hurlburt Field and their new toy, the AC-130U Spectre gunships.

I can just picture the AC-130U crew saying "We know what you're thinking. Did they fire 10000 shots or only 9000? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, we've kinda lost track ourselves. But being as this is an AC-130, the most powerful fixed-wing gunship in the world, and would blow your heads clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punks?"

My apologies to Detective Harry Callahan of the San Francisco PD.
