Thanks, Jack. Really enjoyed that video, especially since I didn't have to mute the music as I do with so many aviation videos. Unfortunately, I feel compelled to add this:
The Super Sabre was a fine machine.
It was big and fast and lean and mean.
The Pilots who flew it
Were hot and they knew it
And with their opponents they wiped the sky clean.
(My profound apologies to all who suffered through the above 5 lines. I'm seeking professional help.)

That video was a lot more fun than this "Sabre Dance," which was shown to us in Pilot Training as an example of what not to let happen to you. Unfortunately, the first fatality of my class was killed in an F-100, not in those circumstances but apparently suffering "target fixation" during a bomb run, and not pulling up until too late.

Inspiring. And the music, especially by Enya added a great touch.
