From “Top Gun” to top shot


Ever since I first watched the movie “Top Gun” I have been fascinated with fighter aircraft. It has always been a dream of mine to fly one, but that dream has changed to the pursuit of captioning images plane to plane, which is no longer a scenario available to the general public. I attend 2 air shows a year, and I greatly look forward to each, even though the demonstrations don’t change from year to year.

One of the demonstrations I always look forward to is the one featuring the latest in military warfare aircraft. I had the privilege of seeing the F-22 Raptor team last year at this same show. This year the Navy brought along the F-18F Super Hornet.
