    That's pretty cool. I got to see them fly around last December when I was at their base for some training. Really cool plane. They call them the dragon lady. Looks awkward when it just flies around.

    my dad used to fly these planes and i got to chase on a few of those exercises. its actually pretty cool. they need the chase car because it lands on only two wheels instead of the usual three. the person in the car acts as a spotter and tells them how high they are off the ground and if they are tilted at all. and when they land they have a crew ready and they run underneath the winds with big sticks with wheels on the end so that the plane can taxi into the hanger without dragging its wheels on the ground.
