    I'm so glad I don't have to listen to that hot-miked mouth breathing in my job.

    (That's not to say that I've never used an "O2 mask" voice when checking in with HDC at Cherubs 3 :) )

    "Kill that motherf***er!"

    That was excellent. I think I'd have to KIO due to intense abdominal pain from laughing if I heard that coming from the backseat.

    All that being said, solo ACM flights in the T-45C - Hi-Aspect and Three-Plane specifically, are still, despite flying the Hornet, the most fun I've had in an airplane.

    Same here. Especially when you complete the syllabus on an out and in with the Commodore as the bandit and the Skipper as your lead, and the brief ends with "no matter what you are getting your softwings today, now lets go have fun".

    I was starting to think that Sam Kinnison was alive and well and now an Air Force IP.

    If memory serves me, there were simimlar words coming from a RIO during the Gypsy Libiyan MiG-23 shootdowns. RIO - "F**king shoot him", Pilot - "I can't, I don't have a f**king tone".

    Not sure where you are at in the RAG, but Hornet BFM > 3 T-45 "ACM"

    Strike and Strike-Fighter complete, with the exception of SES. Starting Fighter-Weps and BFM Friday or Monday, would be my guess.

    I'm not saying the Hornet isn't a great deal of fun to fly, it is, and incredibly capable. Rather my sentiment was that T-45 is very simple, and the flying was pretty much the sole focus... And it was easy! The cost/benefit curve for pure enjoyment, at least so far, lies with the Goshawk. I may ammend that statement in the future, but not right now.

    Cool, you will definitely enjoy the Hornet BFM syllabus....learning curve is a little steeper than -45's, but it's a lot of fun....that and you will never see pitch buck again
