Welcome to the fiftieth episode of the Lessons from the Cockpit podcast, a new milestone for our show!
All of you have heard of an airstrike or raid on something or someone in hiding popping up in a valley, a downtown building, or a facility along a river. My Air Refueling Control Team planning and executing operations were involved in some of the highest profile attacks we call Time Sensitive Targets or just TSTs. This episode gives listeners a foundation on why and how they happen and a behind-the-scenes look at some of these very news-worthy TSTs. Most of these were extremely intense events and a few were unsuccessful.
The Lessons from the Cockpit show is financed by Wall Pilot, custom aviation art for the walls of your home, office, or hanger. Please take a look and order one or two of these very detailed four, six, and eight-foot aircraft profile drawings printed on vinyl you can peel off and stick on any flat surface. Wall Pilot also does custom profiles of your favorite aircraft with your name, unit emblems, tail number, and weapons load. Go to www.wallpilot.com to see the Ready-to-Print and custom order forms.
Prints of the B-1B Lancer bomber, involved with numerous TSTs during Operation Iraqi Freedom’s Shock and Awe campaign is Ready-to-Print from Wall Pilot.
