It really is phenomenal to think about this. I have 70 or so hours in this high performance airframe and Iím allowed to formation solo. I still recall when I couldnít strap my self in the jet or even hold 100 feet in straight and level flight. Now I get to fly 10 feet away from wingtip to wingtip while at 90 degrees of bank screaming at ~200 knots at 30 degrees nose below horizon. The progress is amazing.
Regular solo was exciting. Area solo was fun. This was exuberating experience. And then I got to do it for 1.6 hours. It required so much concentrationÖ just wow. Itís too bad I lack of skills to paint a proper picture of this experience. I could try, but wake up time is at 0400 in the morning.
