“Sparking Down the Runway, Say Intentions”

“Snoopy” was the RSU Controller one night when a UPT student retracted the gear early on a T-38A touch and go, and the jet settled onto the runway before the IP could react. As he watched the jet slide to a stop, all he could think to ask was, “Sparking down the runway, say intentions…”

In later flight room conversations, he expressed gratitude that the RSU comms were not recorded at the time
