Sorry for the slow update, guys! We had some website issues that seem to be resolved now (or so we hope). Here we go!
If you grew up in the eighties and you were dreaming about flying as a kid, you should be very familiar with the movie referenced in today’s strip. We all know Chuck is a huge fan and even I cannot tell you with certainty how many times I have seen it. We are very well into the double digits on this one …
It should come as no surprise to you that there are many related references throughout the years since Chicken Wings first started. So why shouldn’t Chuck spend his “weekend away” just like Maverick does?
I heard that the navy had the highest level of new recruits when the movie first came out. Boy, must these guys have been disappointed to learn in flight school that everything Maverick does is the exact opposite of what they are looking for in a pilot, HAHA.
I am still very sad that the F-14 Tomcat is gone and that there aren’t any left over to fly demonstrations at air shows. Along with the Corsair and the SR-71 I have always thought that this was one of the coolest planes built. And the size of the thing!!?! Really impressive.
