In the words of today's guest, "You're not truly sh*t hot until there's a comic about you."
This week, we talk to Austin "Farva" May, the author of the relatively new web comic "Air Force Blues."
Air Force Blues directs a finely-tuned wit at the US Air Force and fighter pilots in particular. We caught up with Farva at his home during a recent evening to talk about the Air Force, flying, and comics.
May was an airborne surveillance technician on the Boeing E-3 Sentry for four years. The E-3 is a a military airborne warning and control system (AWACS) aircraft that provides surveillance, command, control and communications in all weather conditions.
