F-14 A/B/D All over this jet. Nothing better then being in the cockpit when this thing is running. Being next to them on the catapult is also pretty
cool, but it's very hot and you have to look away from the heat since your face feels like it will melt off.
F/A-18, forgot which models Inside cockpit when parked. Not as much all over time as the F-14s. Doing a "push back" on the flight deck are cool
since this jet is light enough to be "push backed" into the parking spots by hand, yes it is running. Just don't get close to the intakes or
something bad might happen.
F-117 It is small, but cool. Knowing certain people can make your time with one of these way more exciting then just walking around and looking at
it. You will notice that this jet is built very differently if you have enough time around other jets and notice the "small things".
SR-71 Saw and touched
Space Shuttle Saw on launch pad and in flight
F-22 Saw flying and parked, not touched yet but I will work that angle soon.
F-15 Inside cockpit. Much different then Tomcat, but still cool.
F-16 Inside cockpit. Small airframe, but cool jet.
A-10 See these way too much, sound like lear jets since the engines are the same. Did I mention that the gun is really cool
C-17 Flew around in these, really big but don't have the back up siren when they move in reverse. This is cool seeing this jet go backwards when the
cargo door is open.
C-5 Really big inside, no fly time though
C-130, regular cargo ones and the attack versions Way too many rides in these. Really loud inside and hope that the pressurization system is working
properly. Bring a pillow if you can.
C-2 COD for those Navy folks, getting a catshot is one of the best rides of your life. No traps, but my friends said those really sucked, but were
cool to have done.
A-6 Touched and saw flying at work, but then they got decommissioned and went away. That was a sad day at Oceana.
EA-6B Touched and help swapped LOX bottles, just as loud as the old A-6. I say loud since they are annoying loud, not just loud.
CH-60 Knighthawk Touched and sat in but no fly time.
AV-8 Harrier Touched when parked, but that's it.
E-2C Hawkeye, touched but hated these things when running. I don't like propellers.
P-3 Saw close up, but not touched
F-4 in cockpit, saw flying, big airframe.
CH-46 Chinook No ride yet, but they are cool. Not touched.
V-22 See them alot, not touched yet, want ride.
S-3 Viking touched when parked, sound cool then they are running, that vacuum whooping noise is cool.
Tornado touched when parked, no time in cockpit. Another cool jet.
B-1 Saw flying and parked and got real close, missed my chance to check it out inside.
B-2 Saw flying but not touched.
B-52 Touched and saw flying
KC-135 touched and saw flying. Missed chance to go on refueling mission.
Apache See them all the time, no ride yet.
Blackhawks See them all the time, no ride yet.
Huey Cobra Seen flying and touched.
Huey Bell Senn flying and touched. Need ride to get ride in one of these.
OH-6 See them flying all the time
A-7 Touched many yeas ago.
I can say that I have seen and touched many modern Army, Navy, and Air Force aircraft. I can't wait to see the new UAVs that are out. I have seen
many foreign aircraft but want to keep this post short. Being on the flight deck is one of the coolest things to do, and watching some of the stealth
aircraft fly is worth going to an airshow or joining the AF. I am sure that I forgot some that I have been around, but I think this is enough for now.
Did I mention that I like aircraft?
