Luke likes the classics.

Come to think of it, I always wanted to fly the F-4. J-79s sound so badass and the jet is so mean looking.

During my JO tour at Mugu, VX-30 was still flying F-4's. They would jump in the pattern just for shitz when we were out bouncing and get some waves... every pass was burner on-the-go and the LSO shack would shake like it was coming apart. You could always tell the one guy they had who was recent ex Air-Force... never quite got the hang of the ball.

Nothing like 10,000'+ of asphalt to shoot for...

*Opens wallet* I've got a few Krone to throw in for the official MiataTurbo.net private jet. I even know a pilot, she's rated on multi-engine...props though. Should be the same, right?

One of my favorite birds.

When I was about 11 years old we picked up a computer game called USNF '97. I played that game for hours and hours and hours and hours and hours. I love going to air museums and still remembering what things are from that simulator.

No, I'm not as cool as you people who have actually flown these things. I shall bask in your awesomeness.

Serious question: let's say that you acquire a Russian-built MIG 29 for personal use in the US. Where the hell do you get service parts from?

I actually got to fly in the backseat of an F-4 for a test mission doing simulated attack runs an a SAM site. It was a blast, but the rear seat sits so low that I could barely see out. I can't imagine trying to do a rear seat landing.
