|From his youth on a farm without electricity, to flying
missions over southeast Asia, to the heights of power running part of a nuclear
weapons program, 83-year-old John Guiling has seen it all.
The 1969 University of Colorado Boulder master's graduate
speaks most fondly of his time as a pilot.
"I just had a marvelous, wonderful time flying the
hottest stuff in the sky," Guiling said.
Initially stationed in Albuquerque, Guiling worked
extensively with the then-new jet fighters, including the F-100, the first Air
Force fighter capable of supersonic speed in level flight. Much of Guiling's
work involved flight tests to see how weapons systems would work in real-world
conditions. Some tests went better than others. >> Read More
