Because I know I will not be writing more about jet fighters soon – I am taking a holiday too – I and the rest of the team wishes you all a Merry Christmas and the very best for 2013. We have had a fantastic year, despite the economic crises and we have been fortunate to fly numerous planes and experience many rides around the world. We have been blessed also in meeting a lot of very good and talented people that have become friends. 2012 has been magical, and unless the end of the world actually happens on 21st December, 2013 looks very promising too. On the downside, we have been witnesses of rising tensions and the amazing arms race which is currently occurring and that nobody seems to want to acknowledge. We have had to go deep in the press clippings and mandatory purchase declarations to fully get to the bottom of things. Another downside has been the number of crashes this year. We have lost many talented pilots, and our thoughts go to their families. We are now signing off for the holidays and we wish you the best for 2013.
