I always liked going out to Saint Louis when this bird was new. My company's gates were straight across the runway from the MD's factory. There
was always something going on there to watch. F-15s, T-45s, AV-8C&B and F-18s were always being test flown...cool. It made good conversation for the
rest of the day especially when you would see a "Viking Departure." A full afterburner take off, then straight up to 15000'.
