  1. The phrase (Judas Goat) was also used in World War II by the 8th Air Force, U.S. Army Air Forces B-17 Flying Fortress and B-24 Liberator crew members. Each bomb group employed a nearly worn-out bomber known as a formation, lead, or assembly ship. These aircraft were brightly painted with group-specific high-contrast patterns in stripes, checkers, or polka dots, enabling easy recognition by their flock of bombers to form up from various airbases over England and fly strategic bombing missions over Europe. After guiding their own combat bombers into the appropriate formation groups the assembly ships would return home—thus their poor condition and lack of camouflage and weapons mattered little.

    Rivet-R Mini has left me speechless!

    As do a lot of their stuff. Place an order any way, and they will get it made. You might wait a while, but at least you will be on the "list".

    I also picked up some sunstroke after Christmas. It was 41 deg C, so we spent most of the day in the pool. Next two days I was down and out.
