My last flight
And this was shot during My very last low pass during my last flight ...
Well a PPL is meant for single seat single engine aircraft and the F16 is just that. There are two basic principles to flying: 1) what’s goes up will come down 2) if you’re pulling on the stick and the trees are getting bigger, you’re probably flying upsi...
That is a terrific capture.
My Uncle flew the F4 Phantom many years, and logged over 4000 hours and mission time in Vietnam. I loved that aircraft, and sat in it several times as a youngster. These past few years, he has flown the plane at airshows. He is mid 70s now, but still gets...
I got one ride in the backseat of an F4, amazing machine Back in Vietnam it was an incredible machine and it still is Thanks for sharing

Apologies late response but you’re niece is not far from the truth. Can’t say more about it other than that once operational, the failure rate was still high (putting it mildly) and no pilot really liked carrying them because you never knew. Later version...
Much appreciated. Please allow me evaporate one of the biggest nonsense scenes in this movie that apart from some items was/is a great movie; - “hitting the brakes so the aircraft chasing you will pass you and as a result you’ve turned from being chased i...
