Sitting in the rear seat of an F-16 cockpit while flying over the Utah Test & Training Range, Syracuse Mayor Jamie Nagle witnessed firsthand the expertise of the American military, and it left her "awestruck."
"It was incredible. I cannot think of words to describe it," said Nagle, who took a 90-minute flight in a Fighting Falcon with Air Force Capt. Matthew Belle on July 17.
"Outside of the birth of my kids, it is the most incredible thing I have ever experienced," Nagle said.
