Thorsness Takes Flight in F-16:

Medal of Honor recipient and US Air Force legend retired Col. Leo Thorsness got to fly the back seat of an F-16 two-ship flying out of Luke AFB, Ariz., recently, reports the Arizona Republic. The base’s 310th Fighter Squadron invited the 74-year-old, who spent six years as a North Vietnamese prisoner of war, to spend a day with the Luke unit.
