Want to see a F-16 pilot dodge Iraqi SAM launchers? Yes please.







 
 

Amazing! You can skip to 3:00 when it starts or skip to 4:20 to see when things get really hot. Skip to 5:15 for the heat of it all. I have to say what skill on the pilots part. You can really tell what he is dealing with the tone of his voice and his breathing.

  8. Man... Jet pilots are nut.

    I would love to fly one of those things (preferably an F-22), but I'm not so keen on having missiles fired at me.
