  1. Word is that, hungry for a kill, the Bison pilot chased the PAF Viper into Pakistan in order to get him into an R-73 WEZ.
  2. Has the Air Force explained how an operational Navy pilot (whose experience appears to have been mostly in an FBW fighter) and a non-fighter AF WSO, came to be flying asymmetric weapons release tests in an ejection seat equipped aircraft with manual controls? And just how wise was all this when they collectively had only about 10 hours' experience in the Super Tucano? Are these questions people are asking, or able to answer?
  3. True. Have added alternative version, but it replaces ads with shitty propoganda editing. Can't figure out how to embed YouTube video.
  4. Great restraint by this Eagle driver. It must have been tempting to have pulled up and rolled back inside the turn. Russian propaganda version https://youtu.be/i7iyDCchsg8 British tabloid version https://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/news/video-1853224/Russian-fighter-jet-banking-USAFs-plane-Baltic-sea.html
  5. While luvvy actors and the liberal elite give each other a pat on the back for being so wonderful (i'm talking about Oscar nominations, if that's not clear), this video reminded me of the people who really make the world go round.
  6. No, that one happened about eight years later.
  7. Interesting to see Gene Jackson at the end. Jackson was one of the early HAVE IDEA pilots, flying MiGs out of Groom Lake back when that stuff was properly super secret squirrel. He was later killed when his F-15 experienced a flight control issue on take off.
  8. Brave mother fucker. Took himself out with a grenade following an exchange of rounds. https://t.me/directorate4/1433
  9. No mention of getting caught out by adverse yaw? He obviously didn't do it 'right'.
  10. Bremonts are OK for guys who do a time hack every day, but if you want a watch that keeps time for, say, a week, then I would avoid. I have a Bremont and love everything about it... apart from its ability to actually keep time.
  11. I interviewed both of the widows of the two pilots killed in the Constant Peg programme. Their stories are heart wrenching and their emotions were raw even after the passage of so many years. It took 30 years for one of them to find out how, where and what her husband was doing when he died. The other had a pretty good idea what her husband was doing, as I suspect the Schultz family does, but that's not the same as knowing for sure, and it's not the same as getting real answers. "Doc" Schultz may have made the ultimate sacrifice, and I doff my hat to him, but his wife and five children are the ones who must live with the consequences. In my mind, they are the real heroes. My thoughts go out to them.
  12. For those who don't get to see the VTRS: https://livestream.com/wab/tailhook2017/videos/162478715
