This is so awesome. It's sad that we lost our best foe. :( »
May I present the Mighty EP-3E. Best damn SIGINT/ELINT platform in the world. (might have a slight bias - I used to fly with VQ-1) »
Wow, I've been in similar control situations in my '69 911... I wish I could describe it as "drifting"... it's really more like "skidding and getting lucky." »
I see other commenters complaining that the Iraqis are using Russian hardware - I feel a need to defend them. »
