The walls have been shaking here these past few days, with the thunderous roar of jet engines. All work stops and people come out to stare up at the sky, and watch the aerial acrobatics going on high up in the sky. This is what is causing the commotion. Somebody said there’s going to be an air show here next week, and these are practice maneuvers going on. As we stand there searching the sky trying to figure out from which direction they’re coming from, they suddenly appear from the opposite direction. People shake their heads at the noisy distraction, but in the same breath remark that the pilots are so good. He’s a Russian, they say, and he’s not so young. But he likes to fly over the base here and rattle the windows and walls since he arrived here.
Hmmm … can’t wait to see what he’ll do during the air show.
