    .. and the video is also very encouraging .. at least for an 18 yo aviation enthusiast like me .. to keep on fighting until I reach my goals.. couple of weeks ago I had several pre-selection tests from the swiss military and also flight training with instructors and flight psychologists and I passed all of them.. this means that I'll start my aviation career in one and a half years when I finished school ( currently doing grammar school).. and then I'll start flying on the PC-7 and later on with the F18 Hornet yey!!

    Re: Tribute to all Military Pilots

    Yeah, this is a great clip. I think most of it comes from "Carrier" which was a 10 part show from PBS depicting the life abort a carrier. It did so highlighting both the life of the lowly toilet cleaner moaning about his job to the XO of the ship and the decisions he had to do.

    I watched it on Netflix -- definitely worth a watch.
    Thanks,
