The Air Force might be one of the most prominent branches of the American military, but did you know there have been some famous faces over donning the uniform over the years? Both President Ronald Reagan and President George W. Bush both served their time as part of the armed forces in the sky. As if that wasn’t enough, actor Chuck Norris also signed up as one of the country’s air policemen back in 1958. Over the years, the American Air Force has grown to become the strongest of its kind in the world, even beating the likes of China and Russia for the top spot. As well as increasing in numbers, the Air Force has also extended their duties to include protecting the country from any threats from space. After all, you have to think about the future.
Sitting at the top of the leaderboard can be a mighty title for any country when it comes to the strength of their military. However, America has more to boast than their impressive numbers and stats. This country also has some of the top fighter jets out of any other country in the world. From special missions to surprise attacks, America has themselves covered from all angles, especially the sky. While many of us may have taken a trip on a passenger plane, could you imagine twirling through the air at many thousands of miles an hour? Top that off with the danger of war, and you are one step closer to understanding the life of someone in the Air Force. So just how do they get to spend their time in the air?
