Top Gun Maj. Rob Novotny

I had a Top Gun in the studio today. Major Rob Novotny, who appears in the Omnimax movie "Fighter Pilot: Opearator Red Flag" (now showing at the St. Louis Science Center) came in to my KMOX show this afternoon.

He told stories about flying missions over the No-Fly zone in southern Iraq in the 1990s and being part of Shock And Awe at the start of the war, too. He also explained the Red Flag missions used to train fighter pilots over the Nevada desert, which became the basis of the movie. All this while my colleague, Carol Daniel, couldn't take her eyes off of him. Okay, he's a good-looking guy in an Air Force uniform, but c'mon!

Listen to the conversation here.
