I Flew with TAC's Top Gun

Brown mentions one of his other articles where he rode in an F-106. That one has a picture of four guys jumping up from their card game to intercept a bogie. All were playing cards while wearing partial pressure suits, including helmets. What a way to live.

You have to jump to page 178 to finish the article. In some cases the "go to page ..." is a hyperlink to make it easy, but not in this case. But you can go to the address bar in your browser, look for "pg=PA110" and change the 110 to 178.
