I was able to witness something that was pretty cool yesterday. I was on Tyndall Air Force base watching 13 pilots graduate from B-Course to become F-22 pilots. Got to get up close to an F-22, walk under it's wing and just look at all the details. It was amazing. There was an F-22 simulator as well. The F-22 is a much bigger airplane than I was expecting.

Thats really cool, did you get any video footage?

No, the Air Force confiscated our cell phones during the ceremony when we could get really close to the planes. The only photos I got was when we were in the tower looking over the field. Not much detail with those.

They are so concentrated on security with the F-22. (Rightly So). My son's fiance was one of the graduates. It is funny when we are talking about the planes and the things it can and can't do and then she gets to a point where she can't answer because it is hitting around some of the areas that are too secure. She just goes silent thinking of a way to answer safely. It's funny.
