    Tomcat Tribute...

    All you dedicated disciples of U.S. Air Supremacy on here, I'm sure you've seen this one. I was real bummed when they retired them last year, but this is a great Tribute, sound-on is a must...

    My favorite was the F-4!

    Cool!

    When I was in the Air Force I use to love to watch the F-4’s and later the F-15’s take off AND/or have simulated dog fights over the mountains outside of Anchorage, AK. Watching them kick in the after burners and climb straight up was fantastic!

    Looks like an F-4 flying chase on the first ejection too.

    Yep I noticed that too, those big smoke pipes are pretty recognizeable...the closest I ever got to what you do is having the Navy tell me my vision wouldn't cut it for a pilot, but that I could be a RIO (had the grades, athletics, congressional letter of recomendation, everything)...didn't want to be a RIO. Nowdays I get my fix from the Ace Combat series...can't feel the G's but I can dream can't I ?

    It worked out good though, would have never met my wife and had the great life I'm having
