Kiwi Top Gun

Tim Costley, a Kiwi Air force pilot, has created a smash on YouTube, but as a fellow Kiwi, I cringed when I watched it.

Tim is based at the central North Island Ohakea Air Force base. He ad-libbed a song in a Townsville mess hall, and now has his own following on the net. He even released the song on iTunes.

It started when some Aussie pilots asked him to sing a song about them.

"I consider it more of a documentary than a song,'' he said. ``They're an easy target. But, yeah, I just made it up as I went. It's all satirical. There's always been plenty of banter between Huey and jet pilots. Unfortunately for them we're better looking and much smarter.''

Tim says he hopes to recoup the $35 it cost to make the video.
