Mind – A lot of people ask me what’s it like to fly fighter aircraft. Most think pilots spend their time cruising the clouds followed by happy hour at the bar. We might wish it to be that way, but then reality strikes. Of course flying is fun, but mostly flying fighters is a lot of hard work, studying, and preparing both mentally and physically. We prepare because there is a lot of stuff going on once airborne. As a wingman I can remember flying on the wing of now retired Colonel “Ballz” Wilson. On almost every mission I flew with him he raged away killing all the bad guys in front of us, while all I could do was keep sight of him and not run out of gas. We would get back to the debrief and I had no idea what just happened, he would smile and put the whole mission back together for me. What’s the point? You may not fully know what is going on around you but that’s ok, hang on, stay visual, stick with the plan and you will come out all right! Do the workouts, do something, learn new stuff, stick with the plan eventually you will figure it out.
