We've all overcome a lot of adversity and hurdles to get our packages done. If you havent watched this movie yet, its worth the 1 1/2 hours it is. Its called Speed and Angels. I believe its free on Hulu right now. Its about 2 pilots who were told they'd never fly, but got the chance to fly the F-14 and fulfill their dream as Naval Aviators. Trust me, you'll feel motivated when its over.

How do you know about "Speed and Angels" and not "Firebirds"?? "Lean forward and choke yourself!!"

 

Yes it is a Topgun knock-off. A very cheesy Topgun knock-off but worth it. You can probably google Firebirds panty periscope scene and will laugh your butt off.

Its got great helicopter porn...... acting? Don't set your sights much above a high school play. How this movie didn't destroy Cage is beyond me!

That's because Cage destroyed himself. Can't stand him.

Hm.. If I ever become an Apache driver, I'll have to yell random things in the cockpit like Cage... But, regardless, watch Speed and Angels. It'll change your life. For serious.

I finally tracked down Speed & Angels and yeah it was a pretty good movie. Navy looks like they do some fun flying but doesn't seem like they see as much action as the rest. Plus I found it kinda funny how much they hated being on the boat when its only six months "deployed" and while they are still away from family, etc they dont take incoming so it cant be all that bad!

Sorry brother, a 6 month deployment is still a 6 month deployment. And. . . I will take getting shot at over the boat any day of the week. Trust me, it blows. Troof.

haha i feel a cliche coming on.... "grass is always greener on the other side"... anyone?

 

Idk guys, I'm sure it sucks and there are plenty of other ways to die out there... however at least your showers don't freeze in the winter. I can't speak for it though since I havent been on the boat for a deployment.

 

I could see being at a nice BIG base may be better than the boat, even with incoming. FOB/COP life though is way worse than any boat I've ever seen, heck if you are on a carrier like the pilots from speed & angels you would even have more open space to roam than some places ive seen. Oh well, it all sucks im sure.
