    C-130s and A-10s were designed, among many other things, to be able to land and take off from very primitive or chewed up facilities. I imagine F-18s are a bit more rugged - due to the realities of carrier landings - than F-15s and F-16s. Then there's AV-8Bs and V-22s.

    Nothing new really. Towards the end of WW2 in Europe, the Luftwaffe used the Autobahn as makeshift airfields when their airbases became unusable.

    Great secret - it was part of the (public) Eisenhower interstate proposal during his tenure.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    Do they have turn signals?

    Revelation 15:1
    And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.
