Pub time for NASA bods? Orion spacecraft test launch called off


Reminds me of a story I read many years ago -

An F-4 Phantom came across a B-52 somewhere over the States and started to show off doing rolls etc. After a minute or two, he flew along side the B-52 and radioed him saying 'I bet you can't do that'. The B-52 came back with 'Ok, we bet you can't do this!' The B-52 flew on straight and level.

After a couple of minutes the F-4 jock radioed back 'Do what? nothing has happened?'

At which the B-52 replied 'We have just shut down 2 engines'
