Yes there's going to be a patch...
...unfortunately it's a Cabbage Patch doll, made up to look like Robert Mitchum. The doll flies an extraordinarily powerful helicopter loosely based on a standard helo but with a paint job that says 'attitude', and an odd hawklike noise as it goes past. A short period in command of a B-17 Squadron, 8th USAAF, mysteriously deployed to Shangri-La follows. The Cabbage Patch doll cracks up, and hides a B-17 so the CIA will find it's brother, Earnest St John Borgnine. Matrix then bring out the game 'WindWolf', starring that guy who nearly married Jello. (I think that was her name). An amusing camp fire scene lifted from 'Blazing Saddles' features heavily.
Think that covered all the rumours....oops, forgot the Sun....okay, approx 4.5 billion years from now there'll be a 'poof' noise, but due to lack of air you won;t hear it. It'll get very warm wherever you are, the Sun will seem to be a mite closer. Then it will get very cold. THEN 1.9 will have been out for some indeterminate period of time.
By the way, '12 O' Clock High' was part of the RAF aircrew NCO training syllabus in the late 70's, we too had to stop regularly to discuss it.
