This is military fighter pilots' jargon. When the last missile is fired or when the ordinance has been dropped on target, it is then time to quickly get out of the area-of-operations. The pilot turns his plane towards base and shifts into after-burner. This has since been adopted by the civilian community to mean when a decision has been made, especially if it was a poor decision, you forget about it and press on with the next phase of the mission.
Man, flak was hairy out there so as soon as I dropped my load, it was turn and burn time let me tell you.

I had three on my ass. I braked, banked and ended up on the tail of one. I pulled the trigger and his wing just exploded. I lined up another, got tone and fired a sidewinder up his exhaust and he was gone! The third one ran for home so just befor turn and burn, I fired another missile in his direction."

In the restaurant world, this phrase describes the method by which a server will try to get a table out of his section as quickly as possible. This method is especially useful when dealing with customers who are not spending a lot of money and therefore, will not leave a big tip.
Popular methods include speedy food delivery, dropping the check before clearing plates, using short and speedy sentences, and anything else that will expedite the process of getting those cheap customers the hell out of there.

In the world of resale, the practice of reselling an item very quick for little to no profit (or sometimes at a loss), usually in as-is condition or with no work put into the item.
