F/A-18 & F-16 Pilots & Aircrews - Scramble Competition
Practice and timing can be of the essence when it comes to translating it all into a real life combat situation and this time, we drop in on one of those training exercises that helps out with both.
We’re on the scene as “U.S. Air Force pilots and crew chiefs rush to prepare F/A-18 Hornets & F-16 Fighting Falcons for takeoff during Exercise Eager Tiger at an air base in northern Jordan.”
We watch as all of the guys compete with the aim of taking home the fastest time to beat out their comrades for bragging rights that they’ve all battled to earn.
Check out the video below that shows the competitiveness unfolding as these guys really get into it. This looks like the climax of some intense training.
