. . . . The morning is saved just by the short glimpse of a F-84 tail-section on an 18-wheeler flatbed in the opposite highway-lane! ;-)

(*): or what the best term might be !? (Anyone?)

Seeing tail on a flatbed?

Yes, a rugged one together with the related piece of fuselage!
But in second thought there might not have been the exhaust-hole of the F-84 :-/
And then again: The F-84G didn't have much exhaust compared to later jets - Hence, I stay by my first thoughts!

And believe Me: I am digging hard for the explanation!

Back to subject: It's funny how such an experience in the traffic jam can lighten up the entire morning :-o

Would save my morning as well  ;)

If there was laid something in the 'tail on a flatbed', I surely didn't!

"Tail" is American (at least) slang for the part of female anatomy that usually most interests men. Of course a flat bed is where one most usually engages tail. :)

.......... You're left alone home and zap's past a TV-channel wich have showed the 2001 movie Pearl Habour for about an hour (attack scenes to come right up) - And turn up the volume to a point where it probably haven't been before, and lean back to enjoy a little hour of aircraft-action (whereafter the rest is uninterresting and You continues the zapping) :-)
