I actually happen to be building a Metal Earth F14 at the moment. One of my favorite birds.

In that light I will dedicate this build to him.

“If you ain’t cheatin’, you ain’t tryin’!”

That was fun to listen to. Dale Earnhardt Jr said something very similar about future nascar racing a month ago. I like to call it, "unseen" advantages  :D

“If you ain’t cheatin’, you ain’t tryin’!”

I've always subscribed as well to the theory if you find yourself in a fair fight you were inadequately prepared.

That story makes me wonder what his AH handle was.

RIP in any case.  :salute

Wiley.
If you think you are having a 1v1 in the Main Arena, your SA has failed you.

No truer words ever spoken, Wiley.  If not unpredictable and coming from where the opponent doesn’t expect you, ya ain’t tryin’ hard enough.

He was my friends neighbor in Idaho.
Dale had just returned from FL, picked up his recently overhauled Marchetti and was leaving the airport to land it on the runway he shares with my buddy.

Paul suspects it was heart attack or stroke on takeoff.

There is video and audio of the incident that was just put up on youtube.  That doesn't seem to be the case unfortunately.
To each their pwn.

My friend  Ward Carroll on YouTube has posted about Snort

Ward and I served on  4 separate cruises together as we both were attached to CAWG 8 on both the Nimitz and then the Roosevelt...(hmm we actually had 3 on CVN68 then 2 on CVN71)

He has a lot of good old times  tells of flying different navy fighters
"When one considers just what they should say to a new pilot who is logging in Aces High, the mind becomes confused in the complex maze of info it is necessary for the new player to know. All of it is important; most of it vital; and all of it just too much for one brain to absorb in 1-2 lessons" TC
