call sign: moneypenny.

"Negative, Ghost Rider. The pattern is full."

{Yes. That is a Top Gun reference.}

That's me in that photo. Pretty bad ass, huh?

Yesterday I flew in an F16. I'm still recovering from the following:

1. Pulling 7 Gs.
2. Going 750 mph. (That's a little over Mach 1.)
3. Bolting straight up to 18,000 feet while going a little over Mach 1.
4. Doing a barrel roll.
5. Flying inverted (that's upside down, folks) several times.
6. Puking.
7. See #6.

So, until the vertigo stops and I get back to normal, the photo above will have to tide you over.

with love from Pittsburgh,
Laura (aka "Moneypenny")

I am glad to see you again. I couldnt access it and I missed reading. When I was married in a previous life, I got to fly the fighter jet stimulator (I knew someone who worked it) at an airbase. It was freaking amazing. I missed the runway though on landing ............. Hope all is well with you!
