Ramstein Air Base, Germany, November, 1988: Musician Jon Bon Jovi listens to Capt. David Rothenanger as he settles into the cockpit of an F-16 Fighting Falcon from the 526th Tactical Fighter Squadron. He described the aircraft as "just like my Ferrari." Bon Jovi took a break from his European tour to play a benefit concert at Ramstein, the proceeds of which went to a fund to help victims of an August air show disaster at the base that killed 70 people.
