In late 1968 I got "my" E-Ticket ride from NAS Pensacola to DC in the back
seat of a nearly new Navy F-4J . I got the full monte: unrestricted climb,
a really fast nape of the earth run across Eglin AFB, a Mach 1 blast over the
Gulf, an inflight refuel and a blown tire on touchdown at Andrews AFB. But
compared to seeing the curvature of the earth below, and an inky black sky
above from the bubble of a U2 gliding along at the edge of space, mine was a
walk in the park.
