While inspecting the roof on our house in preparation to put it on the market, the lady real estate agent noticed (along with my wife) the big dent in the guttering in front of the garage. The lady asked what had caused this damage, and the wife was looking at me with hands on hips...if you are married, you know what I am talking about...
I gathered up all my inner strength, and asked them "You never heard? It was hit by an airplane... a communist Mig-15" They both looked at me in confusion....then the wife started flapping those elbos, with that...WTF look on her face..."When?" " A while back"... I replied as I scurried away.
It is true...I didn't say it was flying when it hit the house. As Paul Harvey used to say...."For the rest of the story....." I was moving a Mig-15 on my 30' trailer and pickup truck, from Mojave, Ca. to Detroit, Mi. I stopped at home for a few days...when turning around in the drive, I backed the top of the fin into the gutter. No damage at all to the Mig, didn't even remove any paint. No need to tell anyone, as there were no witnesses.
So if you ever hear a tale about a Mig hitting a house in Blue Springs, Mo., well it's fact, not fiction!
