    Incentive Ride

    I got my ride in this jet during Maple Flag 2000 when this photo was taken. Mine was one of the last rides of the TDY, and this jet flew code 1 for the entire 2 weeks flying two incentive rides per day. We pulled 9.2 G's twice with a centerline and surprised a small fishing boat on one of the local lakes. I could see all of the boat passengers' faces very clearly. It was a great ride and I didn't puke!! Thanks, Col. Solonman!
