One thing to remember: try hitting the "STOP" button on your web browser when you start to hear the jingle. That'll stop it quick. It's also possible to hit "STOP" while the page is loading, so you don't have to wait for the graphics or the jingle.
And speaking of sounds, one beautiful summer day several years ago, I was sitting in my living room reading a book with all the windows and doors open, when I heard the approach of a low flying airplane. I didn't think much of it (we do live near-ish Mansfield Airport), until the tone got lower and lower and the volume kept growing and growing until I realized something was different about this one. Suddenly, it dawned on me: "Hey," I said outloud, "that's a B-17!" (I've been to a few airshows).
I literally jumped out of my chair, and ran outside. Sure enough, a few seconds later directly overhead flew not only a B-17, but a B-24 and a pair of P-51 Mustangs for escort! They couldn't have been flying at more than 1000 feet off the deck (it's like I could reach out an touch 'em they were so low)! Man, I wish I had a video camera for that one... That scene remains the coolest thing I've seen flying over my house, bar none.
It seems they had a fly-in at Norwood Airport that weekend, and were going to an airshow on the Cape that day (which just happens to be a direct line over my house).
Oh, and Bernie? My dad (4126th Strategic Wing) swears by a B-52 MITO! (Minimal Interval Take Off) "One rolling, one halfway down the runway, and one just taking off, all at the same time, until all planes are off." Yikes!
