What he said!  BTDT too.  I'm now working overseas as a contact !P with others from all over the western world.  Some are good, some aren't, and that funny part is the worst ones are the guys who talk the most about how "special"they are, for some reason they seem to mostly be from the UK.  The pilots we instruct and evaluate are not western and about 10% would be decent, some even good, by western standards.  So boys, it's all relative and it could be worse!

As for the whole Nichols Cage "Firebirds" thing, I will say as a career USA guy I never ran across anyone close to that "character."  I ran across some pilots who should have NEVER graduated flight school and been sent to an active duty unit and I ran across some real selfish d-o-u-c-h-e-bags, but never in my 25 years someone like the Cage character.  There were plenty of guys who seemed to think the were the best thing since sliced bread and often BSed each other about such things, but my experience was that all pretty much melted away after folks went down range.....
