Prior to heading north to watch the solar eclipse I spent a couple of days checking out the aircraft they have on display at Hurlburt Field and the Armament Museum.

The highlight for me was seeing the F104 Starfighter in the metal. My all time favorite when I was a kid.

The Colonel told me many stories about jumping out of several of these planes during his time as an Army Ranger. The one that I thought was the coolest is in the last two photos. He and three other men would curl up in the tail of the plane and role out a small door in the side. Blows my shit away just to think about it. He also explained how of all the planes he's flown in this was the only one that the pilot could make him sick in if he wanted to.
