Fly a jet fighter in winter

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011
Winter is coming and we can feel the cold slowly but surely getting there. Fall is not the best month to fly a jet fighter because the weather is changing rapidly, the ceiling is very low, and it rains many days of the month.

Ok the sun is not always there, and it may snow, but when the sun comes out and clears the sky, you get a pilot’s dream sky with a very pale blue sky, beautiful snowy scenery, a comfortable temperature in the coRead More....
