My Boxster and GV

Here is a picture of my Boxster and a Gulfstream V that I got to taxi down the taxiway...sure wish I could have flown it.

Dude....excellent video, I no longer have to contemplate a similar exercise.

She was breathing a little hard at the end, eh? Any idea what the distance elapsed was for that? I would imagine you were sweating Johnny-Law (did you remember to put your flight-suit on, just in case?).

Welcome back to civilization btw, I'm sure you were just itching to drive the Box while you were gone.

I hope the AH-64 pilots weren't friends of yours, although I'm sure you're all pretty tight.

I was not sweating the law because the road is abandoned.. It leads down to a closed race track and there is never traffic.

It is good to be back in civilization.

I have lost a lot of friends in the Apache community. I did not know these individuals, however it was my old unit. These guys are all heroes.

One thing I forgot to mention SD987...I'm at 4500 ft. I imagine being at sea level the car would be at least a little quicker. Also, I only have access to 91 octane...not 93.
