I've done a lot of crazy things in my life, but this may be the most insane. On Friday morning, I will be riding shotgun in an Air Force Thunderbird with Capt. Kristin Hubbard. She's Thunderbird number 8 and an advanced pilot. She's logged more than 1,000 hours of flight time in the F-16, which is good because I've only logged about 100 hours on Flight Simulator.
