Tower, this is Ghost Rider requesting a flyby

On March 3, 1969 the United States Navy established an elite school for the top one percent of its pilots. Its purpose was to teach the lost art of aerial combat and to insure that the handful of men who graduated were the best fighter pilots in the world. They succeeded. Today, the Navy calls it Fighter Weapons School. The flyers call it: TOP GUN.

 

Then there are the many look a like Top Guns like Mike here. He was with a large group of 'flyers' attending the concert at Blackpool Pride. He was more than happy to pose for my Strangers photos. Do like those Ray bans!

 

This picture is #031 in my 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at www.100Strangers.com
