I'll have to look that up. Never heard of it.

Watching the special features on the Blu-ray of Top Gun I guess there's only like 2 F-14 Tomcat squadrons left. Weeping openly On the bright side The F/A-18D Hornet is an ultimately superior aircraft to the MiG-29 Fulcrum despite being underpowered with the MiG's having an edge with a top speed of Mach 2.3 and climb rate of 65,000 ft./minute where the Hornet has a top speed of Mach 1.8 and climb rate of 50,000/minute. American fighter pilots are pretty much the most experienced in the world which really gives the Hornet the advantage.

I post that then this report comes up sadly...

Baghdad, Iraq (CNN) -- Two U.S. Army pilots died Sunday in a helicopter accident in Iraq, the military said.

The pilots' aircraft "made a hard landing" inside Contingency Operating Base Speicher in northern Iraq, according to a military statement. "There were no enemy forces present and no hostile fire was reported."

They were assigned to Task Force Marne, which is responsible for U.S. operations in northern Iraq. Their identities were withheld pending family notification, the military said.
