- Total Time
Cliff, been there done it and had a blast. Once in a life time. Enjoy.
I took off right behind some SU-30 Flankers in India when I was out there. Once I had 3 of them use me for intercept practice out there too. Had one go right under me, and zipped past my wing.Hi!
They are on facebook
Friend me "cliff lapp" to see them.
PS-Here's some stuff that's not in the PIX. When we were at Dar-es-salaam the other day, we heard a massive roar while taxiing and looked over to the runway. A MIG was taking off. Mig-17? Mig-19? Something VERY old. It was VERY small, and made LOTS of noise. Didn't have time to take a pix. There is another crashed Mig just off the runway at Juba, and I WILL get a photo of it, at some point. Especially in Juba, I often see aircraft I don't recoginze. The last time in, there were 3 I didn't know.
Classic!I'm may be the Captain (and all that bumfh) but SWMBO is the Admiral. Orders are often phrased as requests or merely observations. One risks Her displeasure at one's own risk.
Worship?? Well, no, but we've been married a long time though it doesn't seem so. I've no desire to attempt a trade in on a younger model.Classic!
One of the coolest guys I know worships the ground "his Queen" walks on in conversation. If it were just about anybody else, it would sound like fingernails on a chalkboard.
I'd bet you're much like my close friend.
