So, like I told you last week... I (callsign NARKO) was asked (activated) by the Mass Air National Guard (again) to come out to Westfield Mass. and fly. Of course I said yes!!!
I flew with John Klatt who is a crazy good pilot.
He's got over 13,000 hours in the sky! He flies the 300 Extra plane in airshows around the country. This is an acrobatic aircraft, and it can do some things that the laws of physics should not allow!
Here are some of the pictures from my flight! Keep your eyes on www.waaf.com for the flight video, that will BLOW YOUR MIND!!!

Here's what was waiting for me when I arrived!
I had to wear the 'smurf suit' for the flight! SEXY!!!
That's my pilot John Klatt double checking my emergency parachute... Just in case!
Ready for take off!
Just after take off. This picture was taken from inside the chase plane... Wait until you see the awesome video they filmed too!
We got pretty close to the chase plane during the flight! It was cool! Notice my stylish headgear!
WAAF video guru RAZ filming from the other plane! So cool!
This was the 'test' to see if going upside down would make me sick... HA! Yeah right!!! This was just the beginning of this crazy flight!
It's so hard to describe what this looks like from inside the plane! The canopy is so clear, it looks like you could just fall right out! AWESOME!!!
Such a great view!!!
Eat my smoke!!!!!
Can you tell I loved every minute of this flight?????
Here I am attempting to get my brain 'unscrambled'
I had to stop by and visit my old friend the F-15 Eagle!!!
And I bumped into my F15 pilot WOD!!! He kicks ass!
Click here to see the video from my F-15 flight with WOD!
I saw this on one of the airshow planes... It gives the term 'bird strike' a whole new meaning!
Here I am with my two favorite Air National Guard pilots... John Klatt and WOD!
A HUGE thank you to Chief Johnson, MSgt Smith, John Klatt, the John Klatt Airshows staff, and everyone in the 104th Fighter Wing of the Mass. Air National Guard! Thanks for a great day! I'll see you at the AIRSHOW this weekend in Westfield!!!
