The nineteenth century resort that is North Korea seems to be in a spot of trouble when it comes to getting a major portion of it’s air force off the ground.
A large part of it has been grounded for want of a few gallons of cheaper gas.
North Korea has been forced to ground a fleet of Soviet-era military planes because of the high oil price, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported.
And note, these aren’t gas guzzling Air Bus 380’s, what’s grounded are 50 year old Antonov An-2 biplanes that putt along the sky at 30mph dropping special forces behind enemy lines.
Picture Willie E Coyote.
May I suggest the North Korean air force invoke the first Law of Cartoon Physics that teaches “Any body suspended in space will remain in space until made aware of its situation..”
As long as they can get one of their bi-planes off the ground, and no one tells the pilot he’s not supposed to be there everything will be just fine!
Problem solved. Kim Jong-il, you can thank me later.
