Not really, but as close as my ass is ever going to get. My wife did her "fini flight" (last flight) with her current squadron and the mechanics were kind enough to include me by putting my name on the side of her jet. She's now off to Beale AFB to start flying U2s. I was originally supposed to fly in her final formation in another jet, but this whole Iraq thing pulled the plug on that.






I thought it was pretty cool to see my name on it. Wish I could have been there.

BONUS QUESTION: What kind of jet is it in and what movie did it play a "bad guy" in???

Free blinker fluid for the person who answers it first:thumbup :banana :lao

It's a T-38 Talon and it has played bad guys in several movies. If you're thinking the Mig-28 in "Top Gun", those were F-5Es and F-5Fs.

I'm pretty sure its was just F-5E's and A-4 SkyHawks.

Yup, a couple of times. Had a chance to taxi in one, but declined.

Those T-38's are some nice jets. That's the plane they trained us to work on in Wichita Falls, TX. before I moved on to McGuire AFB, NJ to work on KC-10A's.

Congrats to you and your wife.

That would have been a great ride. A guy I know who works for Time Magazine got a ride in friggin' B1B, and they let him fly it for about 45 minutes!!

That is awesome. Congrats. and Best of luck to your wife. I was just at the Air show at Selfridge Air Base this week end. Seeing the F16's and F18's in action is unbelievable. Not to mention feeling all 6 Blue Angels doing a low altitude fly over. Speechless......

now...name the variant aircraft that was based on this airframe yet never made it to production.
I'm going to guess the F-5A/B/C/E or the further variant F-20 tigershark.

Did I win a cookie?
