Crew Chief Profile
2nd squadron "Comet" , -
The aircraft I've flown with. It was in 1996 for an air to air gunnery in Corsica. Amazing, wonderful, even if I threw up right after the landing. I was waiting for an F16 flight for a long time. A bit less than one hour looks like one minute! It was so short!!!Got just time enough to realise....not more! We took off, waited for our turn by making some aerobatics figures. Right after, we searched and ducked onto the target (flag towed by a 500 meters string). And it already was the end......
