    Your son has made some wise decisions. How about a picture of the "lawndart"??

    thanks for all the nice comments and e-mails.

    jim w. i'm afraid the only ride you or i will be getting is in my cessna 140! both of us are far to big to get in an f5. plus i'm sure we would test our proficiency with a barf bag.

    Bruce, tell David is he ever gets to LNAS to stop by Kingsburg and see some of his old shooting friends. We still shoot on Tuesday evenings and Sundays.

    VFC squadrons are "adversary" squadrons barfin. The F-5 is supposed to resemble a mig, i.e. faster, tighter turning, etc. They resemble the T-38 supersonic trainer. They are very efficient little aircraft using about one third the fuel of an FA-18.
