Hello Dave and team,
Just a quick note to say how exhilarating it was to take my first 'Hunter Flight'. Nothing can prepare you for the feeling of the G forces building and the sheer thrill of speeding over the water and beach-scape while flying at low-level. Dave made the whole process feel completely safe due to his vast experience and obvious flying skills.
It was also marvelous to spend a few hours with a group of people who have such a passion for what they do and the professional way they imparted something of the history of the Hunter. That helped to make the whole experience a totally enjoyable one. I will be highly recommending the flight to anyone who is interested in doing something special for once in their lives. Many thanks to all involved.

Know and use all the capabilities in your airplane. If you don't, sooner or later, some guy who does use them all will kick your ass.

The important thing in aeroplanes is that they shall be speedy.

Beware the lessons of a fighter pilot who would rather fly a slide rule than kick your ass!

An excellent weapon and luck had been on my side. To be successful the best fighter pilot needs both.

It was qviet, very fast, not noisy or cold in the cockpit with an astounding rate of climb...very un-gentlemanly, should be banned
