I figured they were trying out some new stealth technology on some old planes....boy, did it work. I never saw or heard any of them! Great job!

So, this was meant to honor first responders in harms way and they completely dissed everyone of them due to lame safety info - What a disgrace!!

Some of us missed it? No everyone missed it what a waste of time, why not cancel and reschedule?
