Chuckle, I remember BS'ing with him once here at Flying Cloud when he was here with the "Red River Rats" fighter pilot's group - since this is a family forum I'd prolly better not repeat what he exclaimed about the "Mig Mad Marine" exchange pilot.

best, randy

You mean that someone had something bad to say about John Glenn?

Was it personal, or an evaluation of his flying skills?
