    In their defense, Dougs dad was an Air Force Major who snuck him into simulator and yoke time. He was trained. Besides he was versed as a pilot flying Aeronca's and Cessna's in the movie too. :D

    Where are the swabbie fans? They are in hiding because they got their asses whipped by the Falcons 35 - 7.

    Hiding? Sha, please. I came on this site the night USC lost to unranked Furd and took us out of Natty contention. You think I'm in hiding over the Midshipmen's loss today? Hell no. Today's game won't even come close to the ultimate spectacle on December 8th.

    Skyhawks were flown by the instructors in the Top Gun school scenes.

    That's really what I was referring to, I should have said simulated. Trust me on this one fact.....I know exactly what an A4 looks like and I would never misidentify them as the F5E's.

    Nothing else looks like a Scooter.

    Don't you live in Morgan City? Do the planes from Belle Chase ever fly over?

    We see an occasional F-15, usually in pairs, but its pretty rare.

    I havnt seen the Thunderbirds for awhile. I was home to see my mom in Alzheimers facility years ago and they were performing so I walked outside but I couldn't get a good look cause they never came close enough. Was at Barksdale AFB.

    Do they still use the T38 Talon?
