Major Ambler Furry's Rules For Survival

These collected sayings aren't the sole product of Maj.Furry, USAF, but the distilled wisdom of men who have fought in combat since time immemorial.
Almost certainly these sayings existed in a well-developed form when the Egyptians first fought the Hittittes.
Finally it is important to note that the order is insignificant, Whichever rule applies to the situation best is NO 1.

1)Always remember your jet was made by the lowest bidder.

2)Train like you plan to fight.

3)If you're up to your eyeballs in Gomers (enemies, I think), you're in combat.

4)When in doubt, use industrial strength deterrence.

5)Never fly in the same cockpit with someone who is braver than you.

6)Priorities are man-made not God-made.

7)A plan never survives the first thirty seconds of combat.

8)If it's stupid but works, it ain't stupid.

9)Only turn to blow the opposition away;otherwise, run away and fight another guy.

10)Always honour a threat.

11)Know the opposition.

12)Know when it's time to get out of Dodge.

13)Always know how to get out of Dodge.

14)The important things are always simple.

15)The simple things are always hard.
