Classic gear from yesteryear; vintage audio standing the test of time.

I hate to say it, but every time I hear the word Superstition Mountain,

I think about a horrible Air Force T-38 crash while I was in pilot training at Williams Air Force Base.

Two other student pilots and myself were driving back to the base at night from a movie in Phoenix. We saw this huge fireball in the Superstation Mountain area East of the base, and would later learn that it was one of the student pilots flying visually at night for training purposes. Lots of fast airplane but way too little flying experience. Of course, that was true of all of us at this time in our earliest days of flying.
