“Commander Williams to base. Will our F-16 withstand the sun-searing cuteness of The Archuleta in a flight suit? Come in, Houston. Do you copy??”

“Heh. Heh. Not likely.”

    YESSSSSS. 100000x YES. This guy always finds a way to surprise me. Never would have guessed that he’d be flying with the Thunderbirds today lol.

    Thanks and welcome back TOfan, knew this would be up as a post of yours!
    Yes, TeamThunderbirdsHair, ha.
    Wow, David has got to be one of the most adventurous people….some of his adventures make me nervous! Could not do that (even at 25). Good he loves it though and boy, he already has a lot of unique experiences under his belt (or hat).
    ….and how can you not love the ‘whack’ hair. 🙂

    Zero Gravity Whack Hair FTW!!! :)))
    haha…That pic above = Everything. Something, to me, about seeing post-mission David, who’s seemed a *tad (*ton) more buttoned-up & reserved at times…dazed & exuberant post F16 loop-de-loops! An F16! lol.
    Love his adventurous side ~ DA livin’ life.
    TOfan…if this hadn’t brought you off your “time-off” for a bit….I’d have come to Canada to find you and check your pulse. 😉

    Deb, I was so happy to see you found the time to make this post! This is the happy, unpredictable David we all love. His enthusiasm, sun glasses and blowing hair for the win!

    How fun was this?! From the book of never ending David Archuleta surprises. Fans will be all over that “jet head” look. (It gets my vote.)

    And that “Top Gun” climb into the cockpit? Please step aside, Tom Cruise!

  6. ray says:

    yes to all the above

  7. Bridget says:

    Yeessss…happy to see him soooo happy!

  8. TOfan says:


    p.s. I legit did not know he had that much hair up there! hahaha
    p.p.s. Not that it’s all about the hair. 🙂 Except when it is. 🙂

    YES, chicken hawk hair
    (enjoy seeing him a little less “buttoned up”)

    I happened to be on twitter while this was all going down–most fun I’ve had in a while (guiltily, that includes concerts). Just so happy for David that he got this opportunity–not many do! Make sure you have preserved both videos–they show two different rolls: a long slow barrel roll and a really scary looking roll that I don’t know the name for, but was around the long axis of the plane.

    So glad my fave site has #TeamThunderbirdsHair humour! I would have been sad if you’d missed this great opportunity. Enchiladas, lol! Nearly every passenger in a fighter gets sick, can’t say for sure that David did but … nah, I won’t guess. He’s tough.

    Um, can that “Top Gun” pose be the cover of David’s next album? Because gorgeous. In that pic you can see some of the gear David would have had to learn to operate, including (gulp) parachute and leg compressors that helped him not pass out.

  14. refnaf says:

    Oh what fun!!! For David and for us!!!
    I too did not expect all that hair!!!
    (((((hug))))s all around!!

    I am thoroughly enjoying the contrast between the picture in the header up top (from his photo shoot) and the lead pic in the post. 🙂 🙂 🙂 #newera
