INDEED.
I especially like the pictures of the vintage planes, the Lancer and the inverted Spartan :clap: .

USAF B1-B Lancer 85-0059 (oldest in current service) has hydrologic system issues and is currently parked at RAAF Amberley AFB in Queensland, when it took off to return to Albenise AFB in Texas the nose wheel gear would not retract, it was decided it would fly to Amberley as they have suitable jacks there.

I think you're the one with hydrologic issues, Marty. Logopaedic ones, too.

The b-one may be big and with a load of power, but its influence in hydrologic systems is probably negligible:
Hydrology is the study of the movement, distribution, and quality of water on Earth and other planets, including the hydrologic cycle, water resources and environmental watershed sustainability.
