I’m Attempting to Fly With the USAF Thunderbirds
I never in a million years thought I would ever have the opportunity to do something like this but, I'm jumping at the occasion. The US Air Force reached out to local people in the media to see if anyone was interested in flying with the high-flying Thunderbirds. I realize that this will probably be the only time I am asked to do this, and if I get any older I might become too afraid to do it. So, I submitted my applications and medical evaluation yesterday. Fingers crossed!
One thing I thought that was hilarious about the whole application process was on the medical evaluation. They ask for the height from your butt to your head. Yes, they ask for your butt-head measurement. In case you were wondering my doctor didn't write YES, he recorded 35 1/2 inches. :)
