I love the smell of jet fuel.

jet fuel exhaust.

Yassssssss

……Unless you get jet fuel on your skin. Then it burns like nobody’s business and the smell won’t go away for days (Same goes for clothes - multiple washings won’t get it out, you have to let it air out). That’ll cure you real quick of that one.  What about the exhaust? I’ve had my fill of stagnant airport air. The sounds of fighter jets making passes overhead, though? Music. The sound of the igniters firing as the jet engines on a Bell 206 Jet Ranger whirr to life? Symphony.
