You have to one up this guy in Belgium then to make him feel better about his poor choices in life.

Next time you're doing the maintenance on a fully armed fighter, just ripple a few missiles off the wings - that should upstage this guy no problem.

Sure but the first action/thing is to apply all kinds of safetypins/gear etc on the armaments right?

I wonder if, because safety with armaments is always so important, the lineup of planes at a hangar or airfield isnt layed out in such a way that aircraft are never parked in eachothers line of fire?
Thats how I would design the layout of an airforce compound at least.
