    I just returned from the FTU graduation of Son #1. Nearly three years out of the Academy and he is still not done training. When he gets to his operational unit next month he will still have 10 more training flights with that unit before he becomes mission-ready.

    The squadron at Luke put on a great show for the graduate's families over three days. We got to tour the flightline, ride in the simulators, and go out to the desert range to watch them drop live ordnance and fire the 20mm cannon and shoot rockets at night. The pilot's spouses got to take a "Taxi ride" in the jet to see what it feels like to ride. It was an incredible week.

    I thought I would share the public version of his class graduation video:

    F-16 B-Course Graduation - 13-FBG

    Good luck to all of the new appointees!

    Awesome video Stealth! Congrats to your son "Booger"! I am sure you are very proud of him.

    My son got a ride with "Psycho" in the 308th on Wednesday of that week. Back at USAFA now getting ready for graduation and "hopefully" training for the Boston Marathon...

    Hope I'm at Luke in a few years attending a graduation ceremony too!
