    Someone needs to go shoot these good idea fairies. We are short of transport aircraft and they trash haulers want to get in the bombing business?

    Just cause something can be done doesn't mean it should be done.

      And they act like its some revolutionary idea. Guess they missed the logbook entry where we launched a Minuteman Missile out of a C-5 in 1974

        Which, again, falls into the school of "Well, just cause it can be done doesn't mean it should be done."

        Gather the metrics and engineering diagrams then put this idea on the shelf as only something needed to be done after all other launchers are gone and it's Doomsday Time.
