  1. I find it Ironic justice that the Reagan will very likley be a lead striker in the assualt on Iran when/if it comes.

  2. Yea C-Low, Considering the circumstances of 1979 you would think it could have been named the USS ‘Carter’ so the pastel-pink planes could drop flowers of Peace on the Soverign Republic of Iran

  3. Toejam, I don’t know about you, but my curiosity is up. Would a pink Cessna 150 actally need a hook?
