    Edit: we'd need a two-seater because Anthony Edwards hadn't been to Med School yet. F-4Es were still active in 87, F-111s, nah Maverick would've been an Eagle-driver.

    Edit again: the F-16 hasn't been with the Thunderbirds since 1983 because it's NOT cool... just sayin.
    Ok Ok Ok but come on man nothing is cooler that a Tomcat trimmed up for Mach-1 plus. Nothing.

    I'm glad the movie will keep the original story line, so many remakes these days are just politically correct story and character changes. When I first heard about it I figured they had replaced all the fighter pilots with lesbians.
    Where's the Kaboom? There was supposed to be an earth shattering Kaboom.

    I was always partial to the F-16. The last time I was assigned to an operational F-16 Wing was 1989. 347th Tactical Fighter Wing, Moody AFB, Georgia. We worked hard and played hard. We were still flying A-Models (1978-1983 IIRC, only C-Models went to Desert Storm if that tells you anything.)

    The F-16 has that bubble canopy reminiscent of the P-51D Mustang and the F-86 Sabre, it has a cool factor. It's a small aircraft, when you're a Supply Troop that means the parts aren't as heavy. I worked WRSK (War Readiness Spares Kits, spare parts for the aircraft for the first 30 days of a war was the premise) 88-89, the heaviest part was the 20MM gun (it weighed a little over 250 pounds.) The main tires were 14-inch and looked like a cross between tires on farm equipment and cheater-slicks.

    The Viper did many things and did them well. Air-to-air, air to ground, Wild Weasel (get the enemy to turn on their SAM Radar and shoot a missile at them), does Mach 2 and can pull 9 G's.

    That's the world we live in. We stay ahead or end up in chains. At least we're able to have mortgages.

    I know the aircraft but not like you do of course. It has cool factor but I have always loved the look of the Tomcat. P-51D/P-38/F-86/F-14 in that order. I love the other warplanes of course but those 4 are my tops.
    And just know T.G. would have lost a lot of style points with out the carriers.

    P-38? I missed the twin-tail devil! Designed by Kelly Johnson (the guy who also was responsible to the F-104, U-2, and SR-71) the Lightning had twin Allison engines, four .50 cals and a 20MM cannon. It was bad to the bone, just ask Yamamoto. Oh wait, you can't, he's dead! Got smoked by a P-38 Lightning!

    "Glacier Gal" was the P-38 dug out of a glacier in Greenland. It was restored in about 10 years and was at an air show in 2004 at Langley AFB. It sounded like the baddest hot rod ever. The P-51 with the Rolls Royce Merlin (also built by Packard) engine had a very unique, very classic sound. The P-38 just sounded bad ass!
