“I’m on the deck, haulin’ the mail…target’s at six miles. Lead calls ‘gate’ and I’m full blower pulling for all I’m worth, hitting the chaff and flare dispenser like a sledgehammer. Screaming towards the sun, I dip a wing and pick up the target at 11 o’clock low…looking good, rocketing through ten thousand feet, altitude passing quicker than it can be read – overbank, on my back and I’m easing over the top, pulling to the target, watching my lead, calling ‘2’s in hot!’ Now life happens in fast forward – target, lead, target, formation, target, target, target…finger on the pickle passing 9,000. A half ton kick in the pants tells me my two Mk 82’s are off the racks. Nearing the sound barrier, throttles come back and a seven G pull until I’m seeing stars – grunting out a ‘2’s off, safe’ like a weightlifter with a thousand pounds on his chest – roll on a wing and watch the tank hull incinerate in an explosion that you feel as much as see. ‘2 your hit…shack’ – A bullseye and I’m headed home.”
