Gun smoke is another air to air weapons meet held on the range. The winner is Top Gun. Maybe it's just a USAF thing.

William Tell is probably a just as big held at both Tyndel and Ft Walton.

yeah they send the babies up against them and the 15's. babies hold their own.

the super gets shite on by 16's tho. it takes a HELL of a pilot to beat a 15/16 with a super hornet.

I give the nod to Navy pilots as being more skilled over the Air Force boys. While the Air Force boys have better planes the navy guys have the skill.



My brother is a retired Air Force F-16 pilot. I love watching his cockpit tape of the time he went to Miramar about ten years ago and went up against their three best. He got 3 kills.

Still a pretty sweet job. How often do those things break? I've heard something's broken or needs maintenance after every flight.

SU-37 is invalid due to it not being in active service.
