I guess the bright side of this is at least it is not the cockpit canopy like my F-16 cracking.

Not sure if I related this at any time, but I'm from Long Island originally.... seen my share of tri-state potholes --- and I can defiantetly tell you, no place on earth has worse potholes than here in the Cleveland OH area !!

Although our club field is very nice.... good place to fly. I-90 would rip the landing gear off of a 767 come March.....
