I hope his father is a Croatian general. He may need a friend at the court martial. Still, it's a thrilling ride if you can get away with it.

The Pilatus is a fine work of Swiss craftsmanship.

Possibly true, but that's completely legal in the US if it's on a low level military training route.

I imagine that the Pilatus pilot was training for something like this:

The crop dusters do that at 11 oclock at night to the field next door. Pilots are crazy look them in the eye they are nuts. My neighbor was retired from the airlines[MD80 or 90] and was a NAVY A4 pilot for a while along with other aircraft and one night we were having drinks and I said when I was 25 years old I was going 150 mph regularly on my motor cycle and thought I was cool. At the same time you were going 750 miles an hour and you were really cool. Actually CT8 giving me a smile only a nuts pilot can give he said I was going faster grin . You just have to love the yee haa that makes a pilot a pilot. They are so fun.
