One of my oldest friends daughter is graduating from F-15e pilot training this week.
Cool to have a daughter that's a certified bad ass.

This is her in front of her airplane.



And in the hanger.

Very nice!

I asked a Fighter pilot how he could accept pay for what he did.

He just grinned at me.

Congrats.

My best friend during college flew an F-15C during Desert Storm.

She is embarking upon an interesting career.

Congrats to her on a cool ride.
I really like the Wright Bros. flyer drawing on the vertical stabilizer.

Times have changed a lot in these past fifty plus years. It was fifty-two years ago that I gave my first salute to a female officer, a WM. A Captain, I think. She was walking on the sidewalk away from Disbursing as I was going there. I was a Corporal over four stationed at MCAS, ElToro, CA.

Congrats to the young lady!

a old co-worker I use to tease him about his daughter
his oldest daughter ( very nice looking ) ended up marring a guy his family ran the local airport he was a pilot planes he joint the air force became a top fighter pilot.
I use to compare his daughter to the top gun movie with Tom cruse
when dating he would fly her out of state for dinner or just travel for the weekend
