Callsign of the day

Callsign "Cruise"

During SUPT I was constantly listening to Highway to the Danger Zone, Take my Breath Away, and always watched TOP GUN. I even tried to get my classmates to do the "she's lost that loving feeling," routine at the local bar. Anyways I ended up flying the F-15E and I love it.
