Re: Long Range Hunting....Absolutely

Your support and words of gratitude are what make it all worth it. When we see that our service and sacrifice has a purpose, we can go another day.

I'll try to answer all questions in a few words.

BOMAN: My first combat drop (bombs employed in combat) was Jan 24th, 2003. "Flash" and me were the only two F-16s up that night over Iraq. Cruising up WAY too close to Baghdad's ROBUST air defense looking for missiles/anti-aircraft artillery through our NVGs, I called for afterburners as we zoomed to 35,000 supersonic to get max standoff from the target as we pitched a couple 2000-pound GPS guided bombs into an Iraqi intel/communications outpost. I guess you could say we "hung up their phone". Many more combat missions later, and after losing 20 pounds in a couple months, I came home to enjoy much-needed rest that I never really got after all. There's your quick story...

Echo5: I did a lot of CAS and Killbox "hunting". Mostly 500 pound LGBs on tanks and other armor. I hit an SA-9 one day (IRON HAND), and cooked off the missiles. That's like shooting a full aerosol can with a .22 pistol from a couple feet away.

The high probability of mortality was well worth the rewards....not that I go around looking for wars to fight...
