The Israeli Defense Force is considered to be one of the highest trained armies in the world and the IAF branch is legendary in its readiness and combat effectiveness. After getting a chance to work in the AIM54, now it its time to get some valuable training in the lost art of dog-fighting. Today's mission will be guns only...the way nature intended it to be.
"Good morning, Captain. We need you to hold on the flight line---we have a damaged C-17 coming in for an emergency landing. The high tempo of this training exercise can lead to high stress on our equipment...and our personel.
We will give you authorization for start up and taxi---lets hope she makes it in okay..."
