welcome to the forums, when you trade for the 700 se make sure you wear some clothes that are cheap, they may fly off!

trust me boom, i've seen how the pilots fly.... :grin_nod: :grin_nod: ;)
That has a lot to do with it! haha. Showing off behind us has almost taken us down.
As long as they know what they are doing, I dont care. Like coming up for contact inverted. Or two of them in formation all tucked up tight to each other. and the boom in between...that kind of crap can be cool. surrounding the airplane and dropping flares, then going full burner and crossing in front of us...haha....pretty cool.
Sometimes though, they come hauling ass up on us and I have called breakaways several times cause even there speed brakes are not getting them shut down in time. These are the idiots that end up with scratches all over the wing.

exactly! haha. We just got done doing an acceptance inspection from a jet that flew back from depot, and the fresh paint job is all f***ed up on the door. pilots always "blame" that crap on the boom operators. I've been on an incentive ride in a 135 so I see how precise you guys are...but there is the occasional boom operator that isn't always perfect....but that's not you, haha
