Another RIO gets screwed out of flight time..............

From Wonkette. Wonder if she was the last person to throw up in the back of an F-14?

Bathroom gossip and war pornographer Kyra Phillips was reportedly the last journalist (or TV announcer, whatever) to be flown around in an F-14 so that she’d do a fluff feature on how great it is to do a fluff feature on the military. Some Kyra highlights from the transcript:

-->“Maybe because I’m addicted to it, and I just can’t get enough of it. I feel like this is my life in another lifetime, Carol.”
--->“But it’s been — I tell you what, it’s a piece of history, happening right here before our eyes. I mean, naval aviation goes back decades. It’s participated in all the major wars.”
--->“I can see you guys coming in now. Why don’t you give our viewers a taste of what we’re going to do once we’re airborne?”

Hardly what I call insightful reporting. But she gets to fly in the Tomcat and I don't. What's up with that?
