Default Flak Alleys

Tried a variation on a theme last week. Two of my sons ambushed my combat plane as it was about to land, using their automatic nerf guns. I was a bit mad at first, as they know not to get close, when the the Idea of a flak alley hit me. So we made some protective AA gun emplacements, totally plane proof and either side of the flyzone, and had a great time seeing who could hit the plane with the foam darts. Low level passes with the power off, automatic fire from the bunkers, dressed in helmets, goggles and flak jackets. Just the thing for over active teenagers. Until my wife found out and banned the whole thing Seems I went from adolescent to mid life crisis and completely missed being a responsible adult........

Absolutely a male/female thing Michael. Of course it's irresponsible and great fun hence it's not suitable. Welcome to the recycled teenager brigade!

The only reason I can think of that she wanted to stop this is because she probably thought you were trying to come up with a new way to generate excuses as to why you needed to buy a new plane...

Default on the other hand...

maybe she is tired of me climbing trees, being chased by cattle, getting zapped on electric fences and generally wreaking havoc with crashing planes after a dogfight ( I fly/crash from home) Although she does make up for it by being beautiful......
