Hey there guys :D !

You know, this site reminds me alot of a fighter pilot or aviation nut hangout bar. I've met a lot of great people here and developed a few really great friendships since I found this place back in May of last year 8) . I got to thinking the other day and I realized that I probably wouldn't recognize most of the people here if I met them somewhere! Call me crazy, but I think it would be really cool to know what the people I spend so much time online with actually look like :) .

So let's start posting pics everyone! I'll start things off here with a couple of me. I can't wait to see who I've been talking to all this time!

I was lucky enough to get the chance to meet Habu at Aviation Nation 2004 at Nellis! That's Habu on the left (the hat's a dead giveaway!) and me on the right. Just to answer the question before it's asked, no, we didn't arrange anything about which shir

GREAT PIC :D ! Thanks for posting those and I have to say, nice to meet you :wink: ! It's probably going to start warming up over there (just like it will here!), so keep cool, OK? How do you live in that weather in all that fire fighting gear :shock: ???

Hope you're havin' fun and stayin' safe!

I'm having a ball since I've been home! Decent food and regular marital relations does wonders for your mood! I've been back since December after 7 mos. in the sand. I miss living on an F-16 base though.

Due to a bit of bad luck I don't have any good pics of me with any of our jets (why do each of these posts seem to lead into a story?)

This photo was in the Jan 91 (or maybe Dec 90) issue of Airman Magazine. The magazines were delivered to our base in Doha, Qatar on the 20th of January - the day after 87-228 was shot down over Baghdad. (http://www.f-16.net/f-16_fighting_falco ... -2254.html) It was suggested to me by several people that 'it would be better' if I didn't have my pic taken with any more aircraft. I'm not superstitious, but just to be safe...

Visibilty in the S2-B is unfortunately poor. Doing acrobatics, its fine. Departure and landing has been known to scare the most experienced Pitts pilot. Like the Viper and other Air Force Fighters, thank goodness for "Lookdown/Shootdown" capability.

I've got one somewhere of me building a helmet. It's a b&w, but alas, I have no scanner. I'll have to beg, borrow, and steal, er DEAL, and I'll post a pic soon.
