    I'm sure this has been posted here before, but I wanted to share it with those who haven't seen it.

    THIS is why U.S. NAVY pilots are some of the best anywhere:

    The Navy has no pilots. They are better than pilots. They are Naval Aviators

    Actually.... as a "blackshoe" I usually referred to them as "$%&*@#+ airdales"!



    But... overall... they're much better than those pilots in the Air Force!
