Resolved Question: Chuck Yeager's greatest
Sure , everyone knows Chuck Yeager was first man to "break" the sound barrier but could the following sentence depict a greater accomplishment?
Flying the new supersonic F-100 Super Sabres, the 1st was considered one of the Tactical Air Command’s (TAC) elite units. TAC was then in the process of developing in-flight refueling capabilities to support long-range deployments of fighter units. Such complex operations were still very problematic. Mission aborts, navigational mistakes, communications failures and tanker rendezvous miscalculations were common. In 1958, Yeager planned and led the first flawless trans-Atlantic deployment of a jet fighter squadron in TAC history, as all of the 1st’s F-100s landed together and on schedule at Moron Air Base, Spain. JetDoc; see what you mean..you might have a point...just don't know enough about the man.
