Let's go somewhere I can't fly Hi, I'm Christine Mel Christine served in the United States Air Force for 20 years She was the first woman to fly the F-35 Christine is now an F-35 flight instructor at Lockheed Martin Today We'll be breaking down


and television clips about



s setting off flares behind enemy lines. They're painting us, it means there's a Sam site on the ground that's seeing you on his radar. Sam is a single-missile tracked surface-to-air missile. In that, what they are representing here is a kind of mix between a radar-guided missile and an infrared-guided missile.

We need a bigger bunch in the hunting community. We don't say heat decoys, we say flares. Infrared guided missiles are usually short range. missiles and they can't fly for that long, a missile will normally burn up in this boost phase and once that boost phase burns out that's it, if you have a target that reacts quickly that missile won't be able to continue turning at the same time. left, turning right. left up down there is simply no possible way that this missile can continue to fly the way it does. What is it? Most airplanes have a main caution light and that just lets you know there's something wrong with your airplane, I don't know. any plane that would give you a master caution light if you're being attacked by enemy radar, so that doesn't make sense for this scene at all, this plane goes up, which is the opposite of what you want to do, absolutely Yes You have an infrared guided missile following you, the first thing you need to do is maneuver your plane and put out flares.

They hardly put out flares. Now going high gives this infrared guided missile a nice blue color. clear background so it can track you from the heat seeking missile, what they should have done is stay crouched and continue flying inside these canyons because they hide closer to the ground so there is a lot of infrared clutter, so to start with, the missile never locks onto them and is never launched, aren't you going to miss all this excitement racing an F-22 Iron Man? Tony Stark with his Iron Man suit surpasses these up to 22 initially at least for its acceleration to supersonic the f-22 is one of the fastest


s we have.

Supersonic simply goes faster than the speed of sound at the time we first broke the sound barrier. It was a bit of a violent event. Today you will finish. it goes supersonic several times during its flight and you don't even notice it in any way, that's a uav, what is it? I can't see anything, whatever it is, he just bought the farm. I think the ghost has been handled, sir, usually because of his involvement in another plane. To say that it has been tampered with, you will want to verify that it has splashed, meaning that it has exploded and is no longer flying.

They're talking about a superhero in a suit. I think everything is acceptable in this case. Funny how that is. it works uh disobeying orders red tails 11 o'clock it looks like I'm being moved cattle you'll always wear your mask your mask not only gives you oxygen so you can breathe but also your microphone is located in your mask So if they pull down your mask and you're just talking , no one can hear you because there is too much ambient noise in the cockpit, so no one can hear you over the radio and it happens in almost every fighter


movie where they crash. their mouse to talk to each other to say something but it's not realistic at all let's go look for it where is the lightning bolt?
How are you? Taking a train from the front like you should have done. Its my desicion. The beam remains in formation in most cases after your flight. leading is the correct answer because they are usually more experienced than you and better than you in the plane in this situation the flight leader made a very poor tactical decision his partner decided not to follow his direction easy easy we have to cut your head off, it ended up being killing the train, so they'll praise him, but they'll probably question him for not following instructions, I'm just trying to keep you guys inspired. tinted eyes that will help combat glare.
I'm on the bumper of course, that doesn't eliminate the glare shining on the canopy or different things in the cabin that make it difficult to see. Do you know if there is light outside? You wear your sunglasses and you can see a little better. They're trying to cross the channel looking for enemy fighters. If I was an enemy fighter I would definitely be flying high and would try to keep the sun behind me to avoid someone seeing me, yes it is out of combat, you can also do this in the middle of a fight, you can stand towards the sun, which will hopefully cause you momentary blindness and give you an advantage, even if only momentarily, because you can't stay in front of the sun forever chicken simple port of pearl okay, let's go left right right right right like we're going right or to the right as if we were going to the left well now you have me all confused I don't know, decide the biggest training The rule they are violating is the bubble, which is how close you can be to another plane in the air


during training.
At least the closest you can get to another plane while fighting them is a thousand feet once you're done. training that will normally be down to 500 feet, those are some aces they could definitely throw out for a stunt like this, not only are they putting themselves in danger but they are also risking a total loss of two very expensive p40 aircraft. Things like this don't work most farmers are grounded pilot language the incredible indians golf 909 are transmitting in the blind guard offline there is a frequency called the guard frequency that airplanes can use to transmit emergencies transmitting in the blind guard transmitting in the blind on guard was a very accurate statement for her to do Indian golf nine or nine, so it is a sign of recovery in civil aviation, her call sign is her tail number, so november indicates that she is a civil aircraft in the military we generally fly with call signs that are assigned to each squadron so you hear kong, for example, kong one one and those are associated with military aircraft mayday mayday indian gulf nine or nine are friends fighting on board there are children when you say buddy spikes you're getting radar warning indications from a friend plane You'd say buddy shot up to let them know you've been locked in for a couple of reasons, the most common being: "Hey man, don't shoot me 'cause I'm a buddy too nice guy".
There are a few things on her plane that make it a little unusual, she has some sort of radar warning receiver or an infrared warning receiver that lets her know that someone has shot at her. She is able to maneuver this airplane like no commercial airplane she has ever seen. It is activated. She has afterburners on these. engines and gives you a little extra thrust, which is not something you would see in a civilian aircraft. She is doing a fantastic job of being very descriptive with what she is doing with her plane and where she is.
I have to congratulate her on that. don't play anymore teamwork top gun we got a thousand, there's no closure, man, it's coming right at us, okay buddy, what's on your mind? I love the movie, top gun, it came out, I think I was in fourth grade, fifth grade, maybe it inspired me to want to be a fighter pilot, although in the air


and not the navy, but it's just classic airspeed 300, find a map, I'm going for missile jamming, the term missile jamming may be a misnomer in this case, excellent, usually a fighter pilot. will lock an enemy plane with its radar that plane would have a radar warning receiver that would let them know they are being locked in, that's the first step come on lock in baby bingo they probably already had a radar lock in real life yeah this was in real life, okay buddy, so it wouldn't change much, the bandit plane would feel a little more threatened and would hopefully leave, which will get you out of the queue, clearly they are big, but yes, we employ two ships and four ships to provide mutual support and The core element is two ships, they provide mutual support to each other, so if they intercept a bandit, they are both together controlling the bandit, checking their six for other bandits and making sure they accomplish the mission.
Very common greetings, no. It's not typical to roll Vernon over an f5 and communicate by handing them the bird, but it makes for a fun story and a great movie poster maneuvering back to base, so we typically fly low levels around 500 feet and about 500 knots. fly lower than that, but if you're talking 500 knots at 200 feet, your margin of error is very, very small, in fact, your time to die is so low that any small mistake and you're going to impact the ground, the time to die is a concept where, if you are flying level at low altitude, your time to die is the time it takes you to impact the ground, if you are in a slight descent and you are 50 feet off the ground, going super sonic, your time to die is about half a second, but flying under the bridge to try to shoot someone at low altitude goes almost supersonic at 50 feet off the ground, which is very unrealistic, the part where they show an eel attacking a gun that they do not like it.
They used to fly with attack eagles and that made me a little sad. We will call the turning radius of a fighter plane approximately half a mile. They are at low altitude so their turning stroke will be a little smaller because the air is denser, however these guys are circling the skyscrapers very closely between other skyscrapers, which to me would indicate a radius of turn of I would call it 500 feet or less, which is not something that is accurate at all, such silly but very exciting signs from the sky. fighters in this clip two french mirages are chasing a pilot who stole a mirage there are international signals that you can use when you are intercepting another plane the fighter interceptor must approach the left wing of the intercepted fighter and move its wings to allow that intercepted fighter know that it is being intercepted and then what you would do is fly slightly in front of that plane and turn your nose to take it where you want it to go, obviously the black mirage in this case was not cooperative when the president travels, we are in the air on an aerial patrol of combat looking for anyone who might be up to something bad, so we train on how to intercept planes that usually move very slowly and don't know where they are.
The control zone is an area behind you. airplane, you can think of it as a banner that you carry behind you at all times. The closest to your plane is defined as a reaction limit, so you don't want to be too close to a fighter that you can't react to in time. to maintain the offensive or avoid crashing into that plane the two mirages intercepting the black mirage those guys are flying so close to this other mirage they have no idea what this person's intentions are so they wouldn't have flown as close as they were representing There are dogfights with skycrawlers, you see this maneuver a lot, hit the brakes, it will fly by in flight school, we learned the term climb, explode because it is not that effective, so if you have the air speed to go vertical and you are a defensive fighter then you certainly could, but when you do that you're opening up your turning circle because God's g is pulling you down and you're going up, so you're very predictable and opening up your turning circle, so it's potentially a lot It's easier for the criminal to continue pulling a little harder and shooting you in the process until you end up dying, so I'd say it's not very common in real life for an anime movie to accurately depict the dynamic environment of finding another plane. but i don't necessarily think the moves they used were the most accurate coffin corner green lantern damn tom what the hell do you need those things f35s what else the times i fired missiles in training i fired them at drones given the nature of war and where we're headed, I think it's pretty accurate that we'll be fighting drones a lot more, let's go somewhere I can't fly, what the hell is he up to?
They are referring to what I imagine. aircraft roof, where drones can no longer operate due to whatever limitations they have in the coffin corner, as they reference in this movie, I have no idea we use the term aircraft sealing and the roof of an aircraft , which is also the maximum altitude you can fly at could be driven by physiological restrictions or could be driven by engine restrictions eyeball rules of engagement ceiling set at 50,000 feet roe or rules of engagement are simply the rules that you must comply as you're out there fighting the shutdown, now your engine said compressor stop, which by the way is not what the F-35 will tell you, but okay, so the engine said compressor stop and still It continued to burn, so it seemed.
He coughed a little, but then, as he went downhill, he clearly recovered. Dunkirk Jack Jewel field estimate two 70 gallons 68 gallons for the sweeter ones, reference the gallons in thisclip, which is how all these fighters measured their fuel in the era of modern fighters. Nowadays, they don't measure your fuel in gallons, they measure it in thousands of pounds and you have to check your fuel regularly. What is your fuel? Want to make sure you're accelerating accurately? Return? No, no, I'm pretty sure it's just the In case there's no trapped gas and make sure you check it so you don't fly over your bingo fuel, bingo fuel means you should stop what you're doing and wait now ode what Otherwise, you won't have enough gas to make it understandable.
I enjoyed watching all the clips, they were very entertaining and funny because of how inaccurate they are in many ways, but as far as talking about fighter pilot stuff, I could do that all day. If you are interested in becoming a fighter pilot, I absolutely recommend that you do so. It is an exceptional career, very rewarding, very challenging, very fun.
