A candid shot of Veterans reliving their past
Posted By: Eastern Shore Charlie, 01-05-2009, 05:51 PM

I went to Dover Air Force Museum since I needed a photo op and saw this scene of two older veterans on the flight simulator. Since I did not want to disturb them I just did a quick snap to capture the moment....thought it was cool how the one gent just flew that jet fighter into a perfect 3 point landing...he was relieving his past and you could tell he was completely into to it....

Nice shot! Makes you wonder how many thousands of hours of stick time he may have had... :-)

Great shot and story. nice to see. As for "how much stick time" Imagine how much stick time with shells flying at you. I bet these 2 could tell a tale or 2...

I can't believe they had back seat drivers in the cockpit too?!?
