The first time we hung out, Wingnut showed me footage of bombs he’d dropped on an ISIS mortar team that was shelling fleeing women and children from a village.
Obviously, he’s a U.S. Navy fighter pilot. But more than that, he’s one of the sweetest, most thoughtful guys I’ve met.
And I’ve always wanted to know, what is it like being a fighter pilot? The training. Landing on a carrier for the first time. What’s it like to break the sound barrier? What’s it like to drop bombs on human beings?
So we got together and I asked him my questions. Like many in the military, he’s also a great storyteller. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
