  1. I’ve heard stories in the Air Force about three generations of sons flying the same B-52. Not the same type of aircraft, the exact same B-52 carried the pilot’s father and grandfather.

  2. When I joined the Air Force my Mom bought a lithograph of an F-16 and hung it in my old bedroom. I never paid attention to the tail number. I was home on leave one time and looked at the markings. It was the jet I was assigned to at the time.

  3. My parents split up fairly early in my school years, and dad wasn’t always around much. In the 2nd or 3rd grade, we went to a Texas National Guard base on a school field trip.

    We were touring a transport aircraft when a teacher pointed to the pilot’s names painted on the side and asked if I knew one with my same last name. I did. It was my dad’s plane.

    He wasn’t on duty at the time, but the rest of the crew let me tour some of the spaces the other kids weren’t allowed to see.

    So that was cool.

  4. The world is telling me some thing right now… I just recently (2 weeks ago) got accepted into the Army’s warrant officer program to become a pilot. I am currently at a hotel awaiting MEPS to enlist Wednesday. The Kiowa was my first exposure to helicopters and only one i have seen up close and personal in terms of military aircraft. (It was retired). I get my ship out date on Wednesday upon enlistment.

  5. I haven’t found the helicopter that made me want to become a helicopter pilot because I never became a helicopter pilot and because we were dirt poor and could not afford flight school, now I am in my 40s and I gave up on my dream, but I still feel like a kid when I see them flying in the sky.

    This post makes me feel so good that some people get to achieve their dream.
