I know it's a bit mordern but if you are a pilot at heart you gotta love this!

Turn up the volumn and enjoy!


For those that wish they'd rather be flying .... (with good music background).



Here's a great 3 1/2 minute flight in an F-18, right from carrier deck takeoff to landing.

That video was AWESOME!

More proof that the best job in the world would be getting to play in the clouds as a fighter pilot.

The video is great, i just can't tell the same thing about it's soundtrack... Look's like the pilot that appear in the screen is a member of Blue Angels due to it's yellow and blue flight suit...

getting paid to stooge around the sky in millions of dollars worth of hardware, occassionally blowing things up and shooting targets down.

your pulse is up around the 200s many times during the flight.

OR

sitting in front of a pc all day, surrounded by a veritable menagerie of IT circus freaks, talking to equally bored people saying the same old thing over and over again

*sigh*

Hotel Bushranger,

Yes, I want to drive a jet, but only because they won't give me a P-38 or F4U...

Good luck, and never give up m8.


Shocking how fast the jets land on the carriers, when we land in PF, we are nearly at stall speeds.
