YGBSM meaning.... You gotta be sh**ing me! The reaction to the description of the Wild Weasel mission when it was explained to an Electronic warfare officer who had transferred from B-52s. Much has been written about the WW mission who went up a[...]
This is the first car model that I ever build. 😀
