Great post....and love the picture of your father with the Vulcan. That plane was such a stunner for its time.

Great picture of your Dad with the Vulcan!! I remember the first time as a kid seeing that aircraft in the James Bond movie "Thunderball"

Just remember John Wick didn’t kill all those people for a random car. It was a Mustang

2 tours in the USAF with the ARIA fleet. Picture below from Edwards AFB back in the 90s; I'm in the flight suit next to the guy wearing a maroon shirt.

Fun fact - the Aircraft I logged the most hours on is now in the USAF Museum at Wright Patterson AFB Ohio. A good "official" history of the fleet is here:
