"Back in the early '80s I was stationed at Ramstein AB. We took our F-4Es to Deci (Sardinia, Italy) for air to air combat training on the Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumented (ACMI) Range. At the time the F-15 was relatively new and it wasn't unusual for an old F-4 pilot to win against a new F-15 driver.

We had a young pilot who had quite the reputation as a good stick and a quick thinker. Our wing commander, a one star general who later made four but should remain nameless to protect his pride and honor, decided that he and this hot shot should take on some Eagles. He thought it would be a good test of this young Lieutenant's skills.

Once clear money these two rhino drivers went off to do battle against four eagles. This was a stacked deck if ever there was one.

The plan was for the two Phantoms to rip through the flight of Eagles, get positive identifications, and come around and mix it up with them. As they closed to radar range the general (he was flying lead of course) said to go to burner for the identification run. He did. The lieutenant chopped the throttles, put out the speed brakes, and more or less came to a sudden stop. The general went through the enemy formation screaming that they were bad guys so the lieutenant started firing radar guided missiles at them. Got all four and became an instant hero among the USAF and British F-4 people on the island.

When they landed the young pilot's feet couldn't touch the pavement since he was being carried around by the troops. That lasted until the general taxied in and started in on our young hero for using a superior officer for bait. Needless to say, his attitude only made things all the sweeter for not only had a one F-4 beat four F-15s, he'd done it using a general as cannon fodder.

The lieutenant didn't buy a drink the rest of the deployement."

Even more!!!

In his book, "Sled Driver", SR-71 Blackbird pilot Brian Shul writes: "I'll always remember a certain radio exchange that occurred one day as Walt (my back-seater) and I were screaming across Southern California 13 miles high. We were monitoring various radio transmissions from other aircraft as we entered Los Angeles airspace. Though they didn't really control us, they did monitor our movement across their scope.

I heard a Cessna ask for readout of its ground speed." 90 knots" Center replied. Moments later, a Twin Beech required the same. "120 knots," Center answered. We weren't the only ones proud of our ground speed that day as almost instantly an F-18 smugly transmitted, "Ah, Center, Dusty 52 requests ground speed readout." There was a slight pause, then the response, "525 knots on the ground, Dusty." Another silent pause.

As I was thinking to myself how ripe a situation this was, I heard a familiar click of a radio transmission coming from my back-seater. It was at that precise moment I realized Walt and I had become a real crew, for we were both thinking in unison. "Center, Aspen 20, you got a ground speed readout for us?" There was a longer than normal pause.... "Aspen, I show 1,742 knots" (That's about 2004.658 mph for those who don't know)

No further inquiries heard on that frequency.

That is one of those all time classics you have in the military that you will never forget. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I was reminiscing with one of my former squadmates just two days ago on the phone and we were talking about similar classics that happened to us...Some of those things were great times indeed...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

The Dornier Do-17, another brilliant example of German engineering, a ???Schnellbomber" which could just outrun all fighters, this plane led to the German victory in the Battle of Britain and indeed, the Second World War.

I have the impression, people in the airforce always had their share of fun and excitement, listening to stories to former airforce pilots. Could also be that you keep remembering the good times and not the bad ones.

BTW I heard another interesting one from a former instructor.
He was an instructor in the Belgian Air Force, getting green pilots through their paces on Alpha Jet. At one time, he was an instructor for a pilot on his first flight in the Alpha Jet. All was proceeding well during the flight, until suddenly the cockpit started to fill with white smoke which filled the cockpit immediately and blocked view outside and the instruments. Fearing a fire, the instructor yelled to eject. In the confusion and because he didn't had the same reflexes yet as his instructor to pull the handle,the instructor left the airplane first. As soon as he left, the smoke disappeared as sudden as it appeared.
Seeing the instruments again, the young pilot couldn't see any warning light, nor any indication there was anything wrong with the air plane. So he flew on and landed the airplane in an emergency situation on to the nearest airbase.
Back on the ground, investigation revealed that the young pilot must have punctured either the G-suit or a fire exthinguiser (not exactly sure any more) with his knife, causing white smoke to fill the cockpit.
Anyway, the pilot was reprimanded for not listening to the instructor to eject but at the same time was praised for saving a rather expensive airplane.
And next to that, he made his first solo on his first flight!!
