So Luna and I took a brief trip to Earth recently to catch an airshow. I was excited, finally got to see the Blue Angels fly. Luna had fun too; her exact words were, “I can see why Rainbow Dash holds the Wonderbolts in such high regard.”
Here’s the thing, though…pulling stunts with the body you were born with and have used your whole life is worlds removed from pulling them in an F/A-18 Hornet, which weighs 11,200 kg and reaches speeds of (I’m guessing at their airspeed during the performance) 1,000 kmph. Just sayin’, I think the Blue Angels have the edge in talent over the Wonderbolts.
Also, I wore a sleeveless shirt to the show, and since I’d never been sunburnt in my life, I didn’t think I’d need sunscreen. This was a mistake. I am now sporting two large burns across my shoulders, and it hurts to even put a shirt on.
