I know, todays been a really drag day here too. If that would have been an F16 , that tree would have been uprooted and blown to Connecticut.
I recall reading that when we sent a bunch of early P38's to England in WWII, they stuck Merlins on the plane and, contrary to the skunk works guys telling them to mount the engines so that they counter rotate wrt to each other, the Brits mounted the engines all pulling in one direction. The result was that the early P38 got a bad rap for always flipping over and crashing right after takeoff. LOTSA torque in one direction and the plane would rotate right into the ground.
After the D series and the Studie's and GE's and Merlins were properly mounted, the p38 became the fastest and deadliest plane until the Me206 in 1945 (too late to ahve any effect. Thank Goodness that Hitler was a tactical and logistical douche bag)
