Happy Christmas Eve folks.
I thought I'd pass along to you a video we found deep in the Military.com archives. Give it a look before you cut out early today from the grind.
This is rare archival footage of preliminary flight evaluations for the US Naval Academy class of 1982. We did some video forensics here and we're pretty sure we're seeing Midshipman 4th Class Edward Carroll's very first go at becoming a Naval Aviator.
We need some more eyeballs on this thing to be sure, so give it a very close look and let us know if you think this is the man himself.
Whoever it is, darn nice flying, though!
Merry Christmas everyone...
