I've always like flying but the extent of my knowledge has been limited to boarding passes & miniature ginger ales.
We drove an hour & a half to go see the world renowned U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. I quickly fell in love with the opening acts, especially Red Bull's aerial sport pilot, Kirby Chambliss. Flying looks thrilling, like a roller coaster on steroids.
From being on the Air Force base, I started to crave to know more about planes. Even though I would pee, then pass out, it would be so cool to be a pilot of an F-16. The right wing pilot for the Thunderbirds is a girl, Caroline Jensen, which made me want to throw my fist towards the sky. McKay prefers the A-10. I'll fly the fighter jet. He'll fly the assault jet. We'll live happily ever after.
