Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me; I want people to know 'why' I look this way.
I've traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.

Cool. A couple of reg violations, but cool. Someone I knew in the AF, flew over an apartment complex in Lubbock, Texas, (Reese AFB, 3500 Pilot Training Wing) kicked in the afterburners over the apartment where his ex-girlfriend lived. Escaped a court martial by the skin of his teeth. Had to pay for some broken windows though (or so I heard, wouldn't know personally.) But hey, it was Viet Nam and we needed every hot shot we could send over there to get shot down.

Agree, that was just that bit TOOO close, but not as close as this guy, then again in the end he was technically so close as to be not flying.

The low and slow banks reminded me of the B52 at Fairchild AFB doing the same thing and killed a crew because the pilot was hot-dogging. Accelerated stalls are a bitch at low altitude:
