Right into the danger zone...of Ypsilanti

Back in '88, when there was a Mrs. Fluffy, we went to an air show, and I climbed into an F-15, just for my photo op as 'Imperial Oppressor of the Month.' I'm grinnin' 'cause I turned on the FLIR, got that Sidewinder growl tone, and blew an AMC Pacer back to Kingdom Come...who wouldn't grin at that?

I loved going to airshows as a kid back in Michigan. The family would pile up and head to one part or another of the state to see all the awesome aircraft.

The Blue Angels and Thunderbirds were always my favorites. I found some video of a Thunderbird accident with one lucky pilot. You can find a ground shot and cockpit shot here:
