About the Cover:
Capt. Tom “Huffer” Huff, U.S. Navy, and retired Navy Capt. Robert “Hoot” Gibson, recently got together at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland, to allow Hoot the opportunity to fly the Navy F-18 Hornet pictured in the background. Both are lifelong modelers and AMA members and they took the opportunity to pay homage to their modeling roots by including a couple of their models shown in the picture.
Hoot became an astronaut in 1979, and has flown five missions aboard the Space Shuttle, four as the Shuttle Commander. He may be best known for his famous handshake in space with Mir 18 commander Vladimir Dezhurov in 1995, after docking with the Mir space station. Photo by Liz Goettee.
