    Been around for a while. Many years ago a guy who ran a mortuary in my former home town sent his daughter there and she got a ride in a MiG-29. He did a bunch of press stuff with her saying she was the "fastest kid" alive. All BS but she did go on to graduate from the Air Force Academy. I don't think she ever held any type of official aeronautical rating.
