    I sat in the upper east back then. The planes were so loud and then I thought they were going to hit the building across north avenue.

    It was AWESOME!!!

    Yes. They both lost their wings.

    Thats so ööööty. Wonder if they could get them back. That’s a million dollar decision and lost training.

    Where they Tech grads/fans?

    At least one of them was (the one they show opening up his flight suit in the highlight video) - he lived across the hall from me when he was a freshman, and I ran into him at various road games (Clemson, UVA) over the next few years after I graduated and he was still in school.

    They didn't get them back. There's a story in the AJC from 2010 about the lead pilot's struggle to get his wings after the incident.

    While it’s a worn out cliche, I’ll state it anyway -

    I can’t believe this was 10 years ago.

    sitting in 222, lower-upper east, this was one of the coolest things I’ve seen. It’s a shame that, here 10 years later, I assume these guys never got their wings.
