How Can I Choose?

I'm often asked to name my favorite fighter jet. Would you ask a mother of three to name her favorite child? There are no words to describe the feeling of standing near the runway at Zhukovsky Airbase outside Moscow and seeing a MiG-29 make a low pass, but then again, the site of the magnificent Buccaneer folding up its wings in Cape Town is something I'll never forget either. Flying in the L-39 jet trainer with USSR L-39 champ August Reinbach was definitely incredible, but so was the flight over The Palace of Sun City in a Tiger Moth.
