Since everyone is OK, thankfully, I feel the need to make a joke. The pic reminds me of a scene from a great aviation movie.............

Charlie: So lieutenant, where exactly were you?
Maverick: Well, we...
Goose: Thank you.
Maverick: Started up on a 6, when he pulled from the clouds, and then I moved in above him.
Charlie: Well, if you were directly above him, how could you see him?
Maverick: Because I was inverted.
Iceman: [coughs whilst saying] Bullshit.
I'm not a real aeronautical engineer, I just play one on Airliners.net.
