11/17/2010 3:34:14 PM ET As a Former Marine for life and being VERY active in both civilian and military Aviation now for well over three decades I am praying that this fine young Airmen is OK awaiting rescue...and that prior to ejection he ensured the potential salvage of that finest air superiority fighter in the skies around the world today in riding it down to hopefully a snowy fairly level spot prior to pulling the T-Handle. Let's ALL think positive and the Alaska Air National Guard WILL find him for they are second to NONE
