What a day …. spent all day at the Navy Dare Bombing Range, watching Navy F/A-18’s drop ordenance and strafe various ground targets. Somehow I’m just fine where my tax dollars are being spent. This particular aircraft performed a sneak pass on the spectators that RATTLED everybody. It was AWESOME. Later, and pictured here, he performed a beautiful Dirty Roll (essentially a roll with landing gear down). You go, you Hot Dog, you! Thanks for the show! How do like “dem” apples, Mr. Colley?
