I read in a Suadron/Signal publication about an F-14 Tomcat test pilot by the name of Emory Brown. A friend of mine told me he was a real top-gun ace in Vietnam. Anyone have any info. or can confirm this.

He said you had you're work cut out if you were going head to head with him.
That was an understatement. He wasn't nearly as good of a volleyball player as he thought he was though. Then again, none of the fighter-jocks were as good at V-ball as they thought. Topgun producers had to "draft" the hummer team to teach the actors how to play. Then they cut us out of every shot.
