Back when I was a student pilot in Navy Flight School, I was flying solo along the beach, conducting precision aerobatics practice. As I finished a barrel roll and set up for a loop, I heard a student-and-instructor aircraft check in to the area, and the exchange went like this. ... Instructor: "Solo aircraft 123, was that you that just did the barrel roll and loop?" ... Me (half-expecting an observed critique from the instructor): "Solo 123. Affirmative." ... Instructor: "Solo 123, I have a FAM-1 [new student] here that wants to be just like you when he grows up!" ... Me: "Roger that." ... as I pulled a victorious aileron roll! -- Greg Cole
