Go Low, Go Fast

     Today I re-hacked my low altitude currency.  There’s nothing like flying 500 mph 500 feet above the terrain! After the low-level across northern Honshu, we buzzed over to the range and simulated dropping 500# laser guided bombs and designating the target with LANTIRN targeting pods.  Finally, we capped the relatively short 1.2 hour mission with three simulated high-angle strafe passes, safed everything up, and RTB’d.  All in all, it was a good day.
