Nathan Flies High at Tulsa Air & Space Museum

We were barely in the Tulsa Air & Space Museum before Nathan had found something exciting, the F-14 Tomcat, just like the plane Tom Cruise was shown in during the movie Top Gun.

Nathan just turned 16 years old and he's very patriotic and very interested in the military, and especially military planes. And the F-14 may have been a memory maker.

"Getting to sit in that one, just getting to experience what it's like," explains Nathan.

He tried out a number of exhibits its that required a light touch and a steady hand.

Nathan, like boys his age, loves video games and sports. He also not afraid to lead younger kids by example. He says, "It's better to look after little kids and teach them what's right and wrong and have them follow in your footsteps and into a positive, and better life."

Nathan is also in search of a better life and a family that enjoys keeping busy.

"I want a family that goes on trips and fun activities, and likes to explore things and all that."

He also says a family with animals would be nice.
