it would have taken 9 hours to get jets in the air
What the store wasnt opened so they could get some model airplane glue ???
In the real world US military jets are kept ready to deploy at all times...
Whatever happened to “Scramble, Scramble” ???
Nine hours? More like nine minutes.
CBS said the pilots were on break and it would have taken 9 hours to get them back. I guess the work rules are such that they military pilots are entitled to a full break of 9 hours between shifts.
Hey, don't shoot the messenger. I'm only reporting what I heard on the CBS Evening News as an explanation as to why those jets did not take off.
