Very nice. I spent a great deal of time on AFB's, and would sit for hours and watch F-16's do touch and go's. I still love flying, and would like to work on my license at some point.

My major was in mech engineering, and spent a great deal of time studying various types of jet propulsion and aeronautics. Even thought about going OCS after college to try and fly, but it wasn't too likely I'd a passed the vision test.
