A LOMAC Mission Report: It Happened So Fast! Page 5

Back To Page 4

 

As fast as our fight began, it was over. I call the Americans.

“Overlord, 711, picture.”

“711, picture clean.”

“711, picture clean.”

We’ve done it! Vasily tucks into his accustomed spot on my wing as I punch in the nav-return mode for a direct flight return to Sochi-Adler.

Vasily tucks into his accustomed spot on my wing... ...as I punch in the nav-return mode for a direct flight return to Sochi-Adler.

The landing is bumpy from the turbulence, as predicted by the met officer, but my Pos HUD pops up at the outer marker just as programmed, and I pop my drogues to show off as I touch down. It is a showy landing; I must point far to the left of the runway and crab as I approach, then snap into position for the landing. It is most tricky, but pretty to see. You would call it a “photo op,” no?

Inbound on Glide Path. NAV.

Wheels down.

Chutes deployed.

And now, perhaps the Turk will be more careful of Georgian airspace. We will see in the future. This war has only just begun.
