David Rothenanger prepares to explain the controls. The aircraft was "just like my Ferrari," joked Bon Jovi, who was taking 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.
