October 1 marks the 29th anniversary of my first jet solo.  After a quick swim in the dunk tank and a change of uniform, I was awarded this solo certificate by Captain Wright from Dagger flight.


This first solo was followed by my infamous “surface-to-air hook” by the Sunfish RSU controller.

Good times!
