Yes, this is me... (take two)

Typically, when one is works in a Air Force Fighter Squadron, right before leaving the base for the last time, one gets what they call an "Incentive Flight". I was stationed on Kadena Air Base, Okinawa, Japan in the late 80's. In February 1990, two days before I left the island, I got mine.

This is me, checking the oxygen mask, to ensure it works.

From another angle.

The crew chief is strapping me into the seat. It really is a two-man operation.

Another F-15 flew next to us. They aren't supposed to do this during an incentive flight, but because of the job I did, I knew all of these pilots.

Yes, that's really me.

Real hair color? Not so much.
