should paint nose art on the plane and call it "Salmon Chanted Evening" or "For The Halibut" - it's hard to make a nose art / fish pun with the word sheepshead.

Jet aborts takeoff after 'fish strike' at Florida air base

A jet departing from a Florida military base had to abort its takeoff because of a "fish strike." Officials from the MacDill Air Force Base near Tampa tell The Tampa Tribune a Gulfstream G-IV jet being flown by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) hit "a 9-inch sheepshead" fish in the incident, which occurred in September.
