Moose Jaw (BS) - In an effort to save money, the Government today
announced an economy program for the CT114 Tutor jet's of 431 Air
Demonstration Squadron, stripping the airframe of unnecessary weight
in order to save on fuel costs. These unnecessary components include
the tail, wings, engine, smoke system and fuel cells.
The ground crew will now push the nine red and white jets through a
series of manouvers in local Zellers and Canadian Tire parking lots,
thrilling the crowds with their trademark spectacular show. As a
bonus for their added work load, the ground crew will be allowed to
make the jet noises and whooshing sounds.
An unexpected saving has been found now that there is no need for
liquid oxygen or a hydraulic system, but the electrical system has
been upgraded to included signal lights, four way flashers and high
The ejection seats are still operational in case of an encounter with
stray shopping carts.
Said Team Leader Major E.G.O. Maximus "We're very excited about he
new modifications and look forward to the lack of substantial G
forces during the show. Maybe now we won't be so tired when we hit
the bar after the show. Frankly, I'm happy with the new show
routine. I can't stand heights."
Too funny. Too funny.
A few weeks ago I went on a backpacking trip in Canada. I was driving thru BC with some Canadian friends and we were driving by a lake. I spied four houseboats in a delta formation and pointed it out and said.. they must be RCAF pilots. Well one of my friends snapped back "No, if it was the RCAF there would only be one houseboat."
