Mistress Carrie (callsign NARKO) activated by the Mass. Air National Guard... AG

August 13, 2010


A couple of years ago MSgt. Smith from the Mass Air National Guard came up to the studio and invited me to fly in an F-15 Eagle. I SAID YES!!!

At 9 G's I 'took a little nap' earning the callsign NARKO, short for narcoleptic (they added the K to make it more Rock N Roll). But, at least I didn't throw up!!! Evidence included! My empty vomit bag!

Today MSgt Smith called to invite me to fly with Lt. Col. John Klatt in an aerobatic airplane! Lt. Col. Klatt is a pilot for the Air National Guard, but he also flies in airshows in this aerobatic aircraft.Â

According to his official website www.johnklattairshows.com the aircraft I will be flying in is called the 300 Extra. The Extra is powered by a 300 horsepower variant of the Lycoming 540 six cylinder engine. It weighs 1470 pounds empty and is certified to a load factor of +/- 10 Gs. NICE!!!!!!

Watch John Klatt in action here!!!

Thousands of people will be headed west to see the Westfield International Airshow next weekend, and I'm going to get an early taste of the action!
