Just curious if anyone on here was/still is, a pilot while in the Military? If so, what aircraft did you fly? Are you a member of an Air National Guard or Reservist? I was a member of the Kansas ANG back in the late 60's and was a "crew chief" on a RB57A (photo recon bomber) and really enjoyed my work. Got to go up on a few flights and though that it doesn't get any better than this! I've always enjoyed airplanes and my one regret in life is that I didn't pursue pilot training. We had a few pilots that were farmers or that flew for the airlines and I always though that this would be the best of both worlds.
Anyway, any "Jet Jockeys" who like "dirt" and crave speed and power?
