Two fighters. A 2 seat MiG 21, and a MiG 25. I've also been in a number of fighter trainers (Iskra, L-39, T-28, Stearman). All neat stuff. The MiG 25 was an experience though. The Soviets can build fighter airplanes. They're meant for harsher stuff than our planes.

AC-130 Spectre gunship. Not a "fighter", but does have ample munitions.[:D] Only as an civilian observer...during a nightime live fire. Loud and awesome. I was invited to go as a guest with our local congressman. Wish I could do it again! [b][blue]NAKED[/blue][/b]

None, never had much use for glamor boy fighter jocks. :-) P-3 Orion guy myself with 200 hours flight and 3 hours stick time. Remember, when the SHTF what would you rather see: Tom Cruise shooting down a cute little Mig, or a P-3 taking out a ballistic missle sub that carries 50 city killer mirv nukes. Fritz

None. I did make it up a few times in the back seat of an OV-10, which, by my modest standards, was pretty exciting (sorta like a P-38, only slower [:(]). CJ: Shouldn’t there be one or two biplanes in that list of yours? [:D]

You guys are lucky. The closest that I ever got was sitting in the cockpits of the: F-4 Phantom, F14 Tomcat, and P-51 Mustang, and that was during an air show.

I think the real question is which weapon system is most favorite. As for me its gotta be the 2.75 in rockets. Thats a REAL PILOTS weapon! Just stick and rudder (actually tail rotor)baby! I love the smell of cordite in in the morning...IT IS THE SMELL OF VICTORY!
