Postcards from MCAS Beaufort from Patty Wagstaff
MCAS Beaufort hosts a great airshow every two years. The last time I flew here was in 2005 and it's very nice to be back. I've always enjoyed flying USMC airshows because the Marines have a great "get it done" attitude. Nothing is too difficult and everything is done with ease and a smile. El Toro used to be one of the huge (they called it "The Mother of All Airshows" - I wish I still had one of those t-shirts) USMC Airshows in Southern California and we would see crowds up to 2 million in a weekend.
At the show I'm joined by performers Skip Stewart and my old friend, Jurgis Kairis (from Lithuania). Skip and Jurgis each do their solos and then their "Tinstix" show with pyro by Rich's pyro. I am having fun flying a show with two aggressive and creative performers like Skip and Jurgis. It ups the ante for me, inspires me and makes me want to go out and kill snakes!! That's what Duane Cole used to call it when I was flying well - "She looks like she's out killing snakes". Unfortunate phrase because I like snakes and don't believe in killing them needlessly, but it does make a point.

How to land an F-16 with a spinal injury - Air Force News
Flying above the Gulf of Mexico in the early afternoon, Maj. Booth Johnston steered his F-16 Fighting Falcon upward at better than 500 mph.
The 9-G turn pushed Johnston, who stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 200 pounds, into the fighter's seat, a sensation not much different from hundreds of other times during his 2,500 hours in F-16s.
Then something snapped.
Near the top of Johnston's spine, the disk between the fifth and sixth vertebra suddenly popped out of place, pinching the nerves that connect his brain with his feet and hands. ...
