*SCROLL DOWN*UPDATE WITH NEW FIGHTER JET PICS
One of my buddies stationed with me in England in the early 1970's sent this, then I soon found it on this beautiful blog. My buddy was an F-4 pilot, two tours in Thailand during the Viet Nam war, and four years in England flying for the 78th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 81st Tactical Fighter Wing, RAF's Bentwaters and Woodbridge. I mention this because when I got his email I could just feel that he was hurting to be back in an F-4 flying a low-level mission. I can only dream, and envy him his memories. Even though I was in the Air Force for over 21 years, I was ground-bound, but I worked with the greatest bunch of guys in the world, fighter pilots, and listened to their tales. They were surprisingly quiet and humble, had great self-deprecating senses of humor.
George W. Bush was a fighter pilot, and it shows to his advantage as long as you leave the liberals out.
Strap in tight, turn up the volume, the music is great too, and prepare to use a Mirage as a weed-eater probably somewhere over South Africa.
Noticed a few Air Force fighter jets on your site today. Airshow in Quebec City last weekend. The Blue Angels and a F15 stole the show with their incredible acrobatics. The humidity was 98%....notice the pulverization cloud surrounding the F15...literally, the speed of these jets can pulverization the H2O molecules....creating this vapour cloud...
Thnaks Jay, you made my day. The previous Angel Decoy pctures can be viewed here.
Excellent post here, especially for those in search of how to think. (hat tip Eric)
