I used to fly MH-60S's as my primary platform. But I've flown many different kinds of aircraft and IN many different kinds of aircraft, including F/A-18's and MV-22's.

My favorite was when we used to fly with the GAU-21's, it's a faster rate of firing .50cal gun.

Here's some random pics from the interwebs.

i can definitely comment on russia if you want but its pointless to tell stories from there, as there are 3 options: u call somebody and get away for free, u bribe him, u don't stop

if that exact situation would have happened in russia:
1) they would stop pursuit after 15mins
2) wouldn't be bothered to even start pursuit
3) block road in front, but the more cops involved the more u need to give away, so you always have to make a choice: u don't stop and hope they won't block road in front, so you escaped for free or you stop straight away and pay little "donation" and you get free road ahead

but most of the time if you are going over 200, they try to stop you and you stop straight away, they are very happy, giving you compliments that they did not expect you to stop, you are good citizen, 99% people would not even look at them, so they chat to you for 10 minutes and let you go
but depends on how you talk to them and how dicky they are

Russia sounds like a wonderful place. I hope to drive my M5 there one day. I just hope they have good roads.

110 in a 70. midnight, completely deserted hwy I-45 heading to Dallas from Houston. Got a warning. I had gone down to see my mom who had surgery and was racing back to my colic-y 6 month old and sick wife. Told him, "you know, I'd get more rest in jail"

his response was "just try to keep it down and good luck with the kid, I've been there before".


Pretty cool.

Fall 2012 I participated in a local exotic run that was pretty much organized mayhem, dozens of exotics doing excessive speeds between towns in Long Island to reach check points. At the time I had my B8 S4, and my friend had the same exact car, color, mods, etc. We kept up with all the crazy bastards doing speeds in excess of 140-150 on the expressways. After several check points, we decided to break out and never finished the run because we had to get back.

On the way back, with all the adrenaline running through our veins... we were in NFS mode and started dipping through mild traffic going 120-140 in and out of lanes and HOV lanes. We probably did this for about 10 miles, by nearly 10 exits. We decided to chill out and coast the remaining 2 exits before we got off the expressway to cross over into Queens. Literally 1 exit before we were supposed to get off, a highway patrol flys up on our ass as I was driving side by side with my friend. He probably did a Eeny, meeny, miny, moe and lit my ass up. I had to shut the car of and put the keys on my roof, told me he clocked me doing 110 in a 60, anything over 100mph is a felony so I got locked up. Spent 24hrs in the slammer, cost me about $3700 in lawyer fees and fines, nearly charged with a felony, but got dropped to a fine after 1 year of going back and forth to court.

It was stupid, irresponsible and reckless. Never again...

Word of advice, if you do stupid shit on the highway, keep doing it until you're in the clear, you never know who or what you passed at the speed you were going... keep going until you pass a jurisdiction or simply get off and cool down the heat. lol

Ever since, I've been cautious of where I speed, and how I speed. I'll never speed in unknown territory. I know my local highway like the back of my hand and slow down in every possible location that could potentially have a patrol unit sitting.

Fantastic. Was that an IND car?

Cool fact BTW: when it was founded Bugatti was a German car manufacturer because Alsace was part of Germany until 1919. Bugatti became French when it's hometown was handed to France after WW1. So it is fitting that it is now German owned!
