You are such a stud muffin...haha. You don't look a whole lot different now. You have aged well. How many missions did you fly in Nam? and were all of them in jets?

Bob has the canopy installed. Looks like we got a zombie for a pilot, or maybe he just flew in from Tokyo.

It should weigh less than 50, maybe 45 lbs so shouldn't need a J-57 to get it off the ground.

Ahhh...Republic. How did the saying go: "If you could pave a runway that went completely around the world...Republic could design a jet that would use every inch of it"...something like that anyway!

I used to fly with a friend at Eagle (and he got me on at the Mother Empire) was an original FastFac in the F-100 and then flew weasel missions with the -105. Those guys were sure cut from different cloth...crazy is putting it lightly!

Anyway...every time I would say "so Pete...what did you think of the -105"...he would always start the same way: "OMG...that sled...well let me tell you..."
