You know, I realize it isn't Friday (yet) but... Was just wondering if you guys have any good pictures of aviation themes that tug your heartstrings a little?

Here's one of my two-year old daughter. I call it, "The Future of Naval Aviation".

I take hundreds of photos each month. Finding one like this is a real gem. Wish I could do this more often.

She sure loved those T-45s.

He was coming out on the bottom of a loop without sufficient altitude and ejected .8/secs before impact.

It was at Mountain Home AFB, ID.

I have two video clips of the accident. One taken from the ground and one from the onboard camera. I will try and get up a link. (I see the next post has links to the videos.)

It was not a loop, it was a Split-S.

They article says he is working in the Pentagon now. I wonder if his career is ruined.

Probably doesn't help it to crash a multi-million dollar piece of govt equipment in front of thousands of people.
Glad he was alright though.
