The bird Colonel in there is Marcus Anderson.  He ended up as a three-star.  

I hadn't seen that video.  Thanks for posting.

He was later killed when his F-15 experienced a flight control issue on take off. 

Was he the one with reversed controls?

It's all fun and games at the range until you manage to down your wingman, and yourself.  Great video; things get a bit western at 14:45.

Great restraint by this Eagle driver. It must have been tempting to have pulled up and rolled back inside the turn.

Cool find!  And British adds are annoying.

True. Have added alternative version, but it replaces ads with shitty propoganda editing. Can't figure out how to embed YouTube video.

I don't know anything about HALO, but what altitude is considered high?  When do you need O2?

High-Altitude Low-Opening (HALO) operations are jumps made with an exit altitude of up to 35,000 feet mean sea level (MSL) and a parachute deployment altitude at or below 6,000 feet above ground level (AGL).  HALO infiltrations are the preferred MFF method of infiltration when the enemy air defense posture is not a viable threat to the infiltration platform. HALO infiltrations require the infiltration platform to fly within several kilometers of the drop zone (DZ).

Cool mini doc featuring an American photo recce Spitfire pilot. 

Protip: view in YouTube app/website so you can use the subtitle function. That dude’s Bay Area standard-issue voice is hard to listen to. The subtitles are spot on though, so it’s easy to see where YouTube’s algorithm learns its words.
