He is the only pilot in the world to be re-certified to fly the Starfighter more than 40 years later. In  2007 and 2008, he flew #2 in a flight of three F-104's at air shows across the US. It was the only flight of 3 Starfighters that ever flew for public air shows in the 50 plus year history of the F-104 which was used by 15 countries worldwide.
