Everyone has heard of deceptive targets. We can even see infrared deceptive targets in action on one of the Army's air days with a little luck. An interview with the Phantom Luftwaffe pilot was a great inspiration for me to write this article. Sitting in the front seat of the beautiful legendary F-4, I asked about the deceptive targets and received briefly what I am presenting to you now.
Dogfights have always attracted attention. Since the First World War, their participants have been considered heroes, stories have been written about nothing, and they have become idols of generations. However, the reality of air combat is much more prosaic. Whatever the motivation of the pilots to fight, there was always a winner on one side and a loser on the other in a crippled or burning plane falling to the ground. This series deals with the struggle from their beginning to the modern age, when the sky is steadily ruled by jet engines.
The CIAF 95 Aviation Day ( its 3rd year ) took place at the military airport in Hradec Králové on 13 and 14 May 1995. The day before its opening, on Friday 12 May, an extraordinary aviation event took place at the airport, during which the F-16A aircraft of the Belgian Air Force was destroyed. Fortunately, the incident did not cause any injuries.
Mr. Mirek responded to my e-mail with the article Ejection of an F-16 in the Czech Republic. He wrote that he was interested in the article, for two reasons. Firstly, because he was a direct witness to what he described, secondly to ( I quote ) a " relatively accurate description of the event ".
The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a multi-purpose, compact aircraft with great maneuverability. It is designed for air battles and attacks on ground targets. It is a relatively inexpensive but very effective weapon of the United States and its allies.
In this dissertation, we will explain all the tasks performed when starting the engine and systems of the F-16 Fighting Falcon. Thanks to this manual, you will be able to start one of the best multi-purpose combat aircraft today. Before we begin, we must do one more thing. Raise your right hand and say: I will never take off F-16s without being asked. So I promise.

Tests of the new universal aircraft are currently underway, which should be unique in all respects. This is the largest contract in the history of the Air Force, in which many countries participate. It is assumed that after a long time, it will be an aircraft that will experience thousands of series. It has already received its combat name: F-35 Lightning II.
