Bah-bum…Bah-bum…Bah-bum…His heart beats fast in his chest. The smoke clears and he can visualize the clear sky ahead. The roar of the turbines pulsates in his ears. The thumbs up is given. He catapults off the carrier—the feel of wind under his wings makes the pride in his heart swell. He twists and turns, zooming through the sky. Excitement at mach 1.8. His dream of becoming a pilot is finally coming true!
