so, the week between xmas and newyears myself and my buddy jim got some formation training down in florida. his extra was down there for its annual inspection, so once that was finished up we blasted off and tried not to have to make a skydive :wink: we got instruction from a very high time extra guy, craig fordem, and the man with the most f-14 time in the navy, dale snodgrass. doug, being a navy guy, you may recognize his name, if not google it he has quite the credential list! anyways, i flew craigs plane and he coached me, and jim flew his with dale. it was awesome, the airplane looked pretty big sitting there in front of you! heres some pics of me flying lead, and jim in slot.......

Sounds like a nice trip.

I will have to look the 14 driver up. I actually get very little contact with pilot types. And never the fighter jocks.

And never worked on 14s. Just got to sit in one ...... once...... in a hangar at JAX.
