Prologue #3

Even though this was not combat, the simulated ‘feel’ of combat peaked your adrenaline. Flying at 300 feet above the ground was exhilarating and beyond thrilling. You absolutely cannot describe to anyone the feeling of speed, about 400 miles per hour, at that height. Constantly looking behind and ahead, staying oriented to the task of situational awareness, flying (without hitting the ground), looking for threats in all quadrants and maintaining position through map reading and pilotage. Wow, what a treat.
