CNBC Script: Veterans Join Forces to Create Bourbon at 700 MPH

Anchor: Shep:
A COUPLE OF VETERANS ARE ON A WILD MISSION.

THEY’VE GOT A VERY COOL FIGHTER JET.

BARRELS OF UNUSUAL CARGO.

AND A SPECIAL OPERATION THAT NEEDS TO HIT 700 MILES AN HOUR.

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS:

Trk 1

IT’S ONE OF THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY FIGHTER JETS EVER BUILT

CAPABLE OF TAKING OFF AND LANDING VERTICALLY

HOVERING LIKE A HELICOPTER

AND IT PACKS SERIOUS POWER

TOP SPEED:

More than 700 MILES AN HOUR

IT’S A SEA HARRIER JET

FORMERLY PART OF THE BRITISH ROYAL NAVY.

THE PILOT DOING THE BARREL ROLLS:

HE’S A U-S MARINE

SOT:

ART 12:47:14;14         In its normal mission of fighter reconnaissance or strike//It could carry missiles, it could carry bombs, or it can carry fuel.

Trk 2

RETIRED LIEUTENANT COLONEL ART NALLS

SAYS THE JET’S ALWAYS BEEN ONE OF HIS FAVORITES.

SO MUCH SO that HE PULLED THE TRIGGER…

AND BOUGHT ONE:

SOT

 ART NALLS: 12:44:47;09        This actually belongs to myself and my wife; my wife owns half of it. So she– and she’s very quick to point that out, that she lets me use her half of the airplane.

Trk 3

COLONEL MOSTLY FLIES IT IN AIRSHOWS.

BUT IN HIS NEXT MISSION 

INSTEAD OF GUNS 

THE FIGHTER JET’S CARRYING.

WELL-

I’LL LET THE COLONEL EXPLAIN: 

SOT:

ART 12:50:48;21  we’re gonna put two external fuel tanks on this airplane, one on each side, that have been specially modified to carry three oak barrels with bourbon, 

Trk 4

Yeah! BOURBON:

 THE BOOZEY MISSION …

The BRAINCHILD OF COLONEL NALLS AND ANOTHER VET:

SOT:

SCOTT SANDERS: 13:54:36;08  I was talkin’ to Art. He owns a Harrier Jet, and I own a distillery. I mean, what’s– what’s– there’s the magic right there.

Trk 5

A FEW MILES FROM THE AIRSTRIP IS THIS CORN FARM.

IT’S WHERE RETIRED NAVY REAR ADMIRAL SCOTT SANDERS TURNS THE CROP INTO SPIRITS.

HE’S GOT  BARRELS AND BARRELS OF IT.

EVEN STORING SOME BELOW DECK ON the U-S-S CONSTELLATION IN BALTIMORE HARBOR.

THE RUM AGING ONBOARD THIS 166 YEAR OLD WARSHIP

GOT THE VETS THINKING:

SOT

ART 12:52:10;03 I said, “Hey, we oughta age some here in the Harrier. Let’s put some in the– drop tanks and let’s go 700 miles an hour and see how the pressure affects the taste of the bourbon in– in the oak.”

SCOTT SANDERS: 13:46:30;23 this nose cone goes on here. We’ll seal ’em up, we’re– have two of these fuel tanks, and then we’re gonna put ’em on a Harriet Jet and fly ’em up to 15,000 feet//

Trk 6

WHY YOU ASK?

SOT:

SCOTT SANDERS:  13:47:55;09     Because it’s crazy.

Trk 7

And maybe, they say… maybe THE PRESSURE AT THIS ALTITUDE MIGHT well MAKE THE BOURBON… TASTE BETTER. 

SOT:

SANDERS 13:48:16;04 So that liquid’s gonna push into the wood.// It’s gonna get a lotta more flavor outta the bourbon, that’s the theory. Will see what happens. 

Trk 8

TESTING THAT THEORY WILL NOT BE CHEAP: 

SOT:

 ART NALLS: 12:53:45;02 This airplane uses 1.2 gallons per mile. It’ll burn a gallon every two seconds when I’m in the hover. You cannot pour it out of a five-gallon bucket as fast as what this engine will convert it into heat, thrust, and noise.

SOT:

SCOTT SANDERS: 13:53:21;20 It’s very expensive and, my partners would say, “idiotic!” 

Trk 9

THE COLONEL SAYS HE’S  DONATING HIS JET AND FLIGHT TIME.

THE ADMIRAL… THE BARRELS AND BOOZE 

THE PLAN: 

SELL THE 700 MILE PER HOUR BOURBON.

At a PRICE TAG of AROUND 145 BUCKS A BOTTLE.

SOT

13:53:26;20 SCOTT what this is about, it’s the charity, it’s what we’re doin’ it for.

SOT

12:52:53;22 ART  all the sales will go to the Semper Fi Fund,

Trk 10

SEMPER FI AND AMERICAS FUND:

THAT’S  THE NON PROFIT SUPPORTING COMBAT WOUNDED

AND CRITICALLY ILL MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES.

SOT

ART NALLS:12:55:26;19 I like bourbon, and there’s a lotta people that do. And a lotta people that would say, “You know what? I get a good bottle of bourbon and I get a good story to tell.”

Trk 11

IT’S A GREAT STORY COLONEL.

AND A GREAT CAUSE TOO.
