Default Need some help from one of our Navy/Airforce brothers

This is a little bit of a long story.

My stepsister, Jessica, started a "social project" called Hands Up! where she tries to find an many people as possible posing for a picture with their Hands Up! to spread silliness and awareness and in some weird way bring us all closer together.

It has been picking up a lot of steam and she is in a position now to turn it into an opportunity to benefit deserving charities.

So far she has raised over $2000 for charity.

This Charity Challenge she is doing right now will benefit The Run for Ricky and is a World Wide Scavenger Hunt.

You can see her video here describing the World Wide Scavenger Hunt:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nsfW...source=message

Since that video was posted she has 9 pictures to go out of the original 40.

Here is where you guys come in -

One of the items she needs is a picture of a fighter pilot, in his/her gear, with their hands up in the air. Really simple.

If anyone can help us out with Number 8 - a Fighter Pilot in uniform - we would be so grateful that it get's us that much closer to a $1000 donation to a very deserving charity.

I was hoping one of our BOTLs serving in the Air Force could help us with this one. To show our gratitude I will make a donation to the troop supporter of your choice, in your honor.

Any questions or clarifications please let me know here or you can reach Jessica via http://www.handsupthepose.com/index.html

I should also give a big apology to our NAVY brothers as well. You guys have some pretty nice places too right?

I thought that may be the real sticky part of this one, loose lips and the effect they have on ships and all.

Sure, if he is all geared up and has his hands up in the air that will work!

Just in a flight suit is totally fine. Standing on solid ground is totally fine as well.
