Bye bye Vomit Comet

285 gallons of vomit and nearly 10 years after it first flew, NASA's final converted ""Weightless Wonder" KC-135 has been retired...



It will be replaced early next year with a modified C-9

Some traditions won't stop, however. The first person to vomit in the C-9 will probably get "a little plaque -- all in good fun of course," Yaniac said.

I hope that if they try the cat experiment again with the new plane they have things set up a little better.

I hope that if they do 'the cat experiment' again the cat rips their collective faces off...
