    A preflight announcement from a commercial airlines pilot:

    "On our flight today, we will be flying at 34,000 feet. To give you an idea of how high that is, we would be able to fly over 23 Empire State Buildings stacked one on top of the other.

    "Our speed will be about 600 mph. That's just over the muzzle velocity of some .22 pistols.

    "We'll be pushed along by two Pratt & Whitney JT-8D-200 turbofan engines. While thrust to horsepower varies with altitude, the total 40,000 lbs. of thrust is greater than the combined power of ten D-9 diesel locomotives.

    "IOW, we're 'faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, & able to leap tall buildings in a single bound' & as always, your crew stands for 'truth, justice and the American way of life'!"














    [NOTE: It's my understanding that discounted tickets for these flights may be purchased at some newspaper that apparently is published in the city of Metropolis, IL.]

    Salty is again plagiarizing Mr. James Olson.

    Expect a parcel of Kryptonite soon.
