I believe he wants to play two more years! I didn't listen yet but I heard he said it. If thats true good, we will have plenty of time to miss these guys when they are gone so why rush it? If he can still contribute thats great.
ďThe [Navy] specs called for Mach 2.34. We actually tested the airplane for Mach 2.5. I flew it 2.5 a couple times. When you fly a Phantom, itís built for 2.0, but when you fly that fast you know it. Itís like sitting on a beach ball; you donít know which way itíll go, itís so sensitive. In a F-14 itís like sitting in a Cadillac. Itís solid. You donít realize youíre going that fast.
