Due to the price increase in ammunition, do not expect a warning shot.

Sig Sauer, kinda like Glock except for men.

Wow!! Can a 747 pivot like that on one bogey?

Yes, the B747 has body gear steering, allowing it to turn sharply although the tyres do scrub slightly.

Smart ATC or what?

Smart yes. The heavy does not have to wait so long for wake turbelence from the light aircraft before it can take off.
If the 747 went first the Citation would have had to wait 2 minutes before taking off.
