     Yep, and I'm old enough to remember the "Steve Canyon" TV show of the late 
1950's.  As I recall, he flew an F-106.

     Which reminds me: One of our local broadcast channels recently became the 
local affiliate for the scifi network COMET, and one of the shows they 
broadcast is "Men Into Space", of which there were just 38 episodes.  I never 
saw them all back then as we moved to France halfway through the series, so I'm 
getting to see some episodes for the first time.
