Welcome @intj! What aircraft did you fly in the USAF? My dad was a KC-135 pilot for most of his career and we lived at Fairchild AFB. Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho are among some of my favorite memories. Have fun planning your African adventure. Lots of great info on this site.
I flew C-130s, T-38s, T-1s--in that order. Ended up with two C-130 tours, two T-1 tours, one T-38 tour, and a couple of staff tours.
The closest I got to a fighter was my T-38 IP tour, but I did hold my own against an F-15 pilot one day when they let us take two T-38s solo--which was rare as Instructor Pilots.
I do like it here in N. Idaho. Reminds me of Southern Oregon when I was a kid....
