When The Jets Fly,
Running time 9.35 minutes

Keeping the peace is a violent enterprise.  
Preparing to vanquish the enemy whoever or wherever that enemy might be,
requires practice, practice, practice. Unlimited taxpayer funds to support the forever war, 

feeds the cycle of procurement and obsolescence with aircraft and weapons
systems constantly upgraded, perfected and discarded, only to begin again.
The result is ever more training, on ever more
complicated weapons systems, often requiring more space for war play.
On Whidbey Island, WA and in Burlington, VT and in many places in between,
the growing demands of the U.S. military to wage war, is turning civilian spaces

into military hell scapes.
