Re: Brigadier General
Years ago, well a couple of decades ago, I was driving up the FLA Turnpike to Orlando and four A-10's were "attacking" a Cypress hammock. Bad Cypress trees, Bad! The A-10s would circle like buzzards, then one by one peel off and make a pass at the bad Cypress trees. They repeated this a couple of times before I drove out of sight. I figured the A-10s had flown all of the way from Myrtle Beach, SC to punish those trees.
Fun to watch though. When Homestead AFB was had active duty units, I was on a sail boat south of Miami when a couple of F16's made a pass on us. I saw them stack up to the SE, turn and make a shallow dive at us. They did not get close but I know they had us in their sights. Good for them they pulled up and did not get close! We almost pulled out our M1 Carbine to show we meant bizness!
