Thunder over Louisville is part of the KY Derby celebration. P art of it is the airshow. This year there were F-16's (omg how loud when they kick in afterburner), F-15's, F-18's and best of all the F-22 Raptor. If you ahve never seen the Raptor perform folks I can tell ya....there is no plane in the world that can take it. It turns on a dime. It's "new best be sure" I was lucky this year...I was at a party in a condo sitting 20 yards from the river.

I can see one of the pilots having engine trouble and having to bail out in some remote hills in KY by a river.
He will be found by some local "citizens" who will make him "squeal like a pig" for a few weeks until they are distracted by a sheep or first cousin found caught in a fence, allowing "Sky-King" to slip away to be found on the side of an interstate by a family from out west in an RV after crawling through the wilderness for three days.

For the love of god don't crash in the deep south!

Nope, thats in eastern Kentucky, I wouldn't go there. You could end up in somebody's soup. I worked with a guy that got transfered there and he said he had to fix some bullet holes at work because there was a "honky tonk" across the road. LoL, he fit right in though.
