You are right of course Gary, I just get tired of hearing people reiterate how fences are useless.
Fact is, even the best pilot could lose control, even on the ground.
The usual flight-station fence at our field is supplemented by a 12' high fishing-net fence behind the pilot stations, and at each end of the pits.
I know, I know, some dim-wit could find a way to fly around or over the fence, but it sure reduces the likelihood of such an occurence!

If you cannot control your aircraft like every one else, don't fly in front of spectators. no special treatment should be given.
Glad it's so funny to you, and a big thank you for generalizing jet pilots like that. Try going to a jet rally sometime and watch, you make it sound as though jet pilots are all idiots, how many jet pilots have you actually watched fly their airplanes? I could make a pretty broad statement like that as well about almost any side of the hobby, but that's not fair either. Heck, I used to live in Alberta myself, I could make some pretty broad unfair statements about albertans if I really wanted to
