    Cool! I've visited boomers, but never sailed aboard one. They are BIG boats ;) My sinuses are what caused me to move from aviation to subs.

    How I was... I was unsuccessful at attempting being an appointed artist, no need for it! The picture was taken soon before I was leaving. Behind me, one of my paintings they were asking from time to time, and ahead of me, from left to right, colonel Öttl, and colonel de Percin-Northumberland. Both French!

    8 years USAF: 87 to 95:

    half of that was spent in avionics systems backshop on F-111s (EF, D, and F series). I think they've mothballed them all, but I'd love to get my hands on an Aardvark papermodel. One of the coolest jets every build IMHO
