Whiskers dropped to one hundred feet, and fed power in. The runway was coming up and his speed was .98 Mach. He started and eight point hesitation roll and was on knife edge as he flashed past the tower with the thunder of afterburners rolling across the field.
Pete flushed with pride and told Talley, “Your boyfriend is very popular with the locals. I can guarantee you that the Tower offered him that high speed pass, because he’s so well liked here. I know he wouldn’t ask. He’d feel like he was imposing.”
Talley said “that was a beautiful roll wasn’t it. He’s so good.”
“In more than just aviation. He is a very good cat.”
Whiskers popped the air brakes got the speed down and extended the gear and flaps to land. He turned final and settled to the runway. He returned to the ramp at a fast taxi.
He shut down, performed his checks and called for the ladder. Talley placed it on the aircraft and hugged him hard once he’d climbed down.
Pete came over and held out a small box. Whiskers took it and opened it. Inside was an embroidered patch, It depicted an Eagle descending with Talons extended, and the words Talon Pilot below the image. There was also a set of wings, silver with a lightning bolt in the center. These were special wings for supersonic flight. Pete said, The Patch is for your Flight Jacket. I had it made for you. It’s like the one my dd had on his flight jacket. The wings indicate you’re qualified for faster than sound flight. They go on your Flight suit.
Whiskers said, “Pete, Thank you so much! What a thrill.”
Pete told Whiskers that he was honored to have him for a student and a friend.
At that point Talley pulled Whiskers to her and said “come and tell me what it was like for you.”
Angels Lucy and Sylvia were busy adjusting the pedal and seat placement in the front cockpit to accommodate Talley’s shorter legs and smaller body.
The aircraft would be ready for her training when she and Pete were ready to begin.
Pete watched Talley and Whiskers and decide that Talley’s lessons could wait, while his sister and his friend enjoyed the excitement of the moment.
I left a friendly vote with purrs and hugs.
