Go by Foghorn.
« on: January 21, 2021, 01:20:28 PM »
Hello all,

Retired USAF F-16 IP, now turned civilian-employee test pilot on the same airframe (and a few others).  I've been lurking the forums awhile before I now introduce myself.  Love the simpits I have found on here.  Very, very impressive work.

Yes, you may ask me questions.  I still have an active security clearance and work in that community, so please understand if I refuse to answer something.

Again, I'm very impressed with the simpits on here.  Love the attention to detail.

Greetings Foghorn!

Great to have a real F16 pilot on the forum.  Thanks for volunteering your expertise as well, I am sure you will get many questions.  :thumbsup:

I think it's safe to say that all of us would be interested to know more details of your career/background. 

Welcome....

Wow, that's quite the career..  I would almost call bullshit that is such an accomplishment!  I'm sure will gain much respect here and you already have mine.  :beer:

So my first question is was "Foghorn" your official Callsign while operational?  If not what was it, and how did you earn it?   8)
