I was coached at Pensacola to never trust the Air Force,
by a Navy pilot who had challenged an F-86 squadron at nearby Egland AFB
to an encounter at 30,000 feet with the Navy's new Cougar, F9F-8. According
to this officer, "Those cheating Air Force guys showed up at 35,000.
If we hadn't been at 40,000, they would have waxed us!" - Tom Nelson
