SEE THE EC-130 Hercules AWACS and the USAF F-16 at the Hamilton
International War Show!
Read about their exploits in a Transcript of mission radio traffic! (quoted
in Defense & Foreign Affairs Strategic Policy Monthly):
Pilot: "Good day, I am in position 80. No movement underneath. Please
information of red MiGs [jargon for Yugoslav combat aircraft]
AWACS: "Hello Charlie Bravo. Mother here. Patrol northwest direction
Prizren-Dakovica. There are no red MiGs in the air."
Pilot: "OK, I am going to 3,000ft."
AWACS: "Mother to Charlie Bravo. You get reinforcements in about 10 minutes.
There will be something interesting south of Dakovica."
Pilot: "Charlie Bravo to Mother. I am coming out of the clouds, still
nothing in sight."
AWACS: "Mother to Charlie Bravo. Continue to the north, course 280."
Pilot: "Charlie Bravo to Mother. I am keeping 3,000 feet. Under me columns
of cars, some kind of tractors. What is it? Requesting instructions."
AWACS: "Mother to Charlie Bravo. Do you see tanks? Repeat, where are the tanks?"
Pilot: "Charlie Bravo to Mother, I see tractors. I suppose the Reds did not
camouflage tanks as tractors."
AWACS: "Mother to Charlie Bravo. What kind of strange convoy is this? What,
civilians? Damn, this is all the Serb's doing. Destroy the target."
Pilot: "Charlie Bravo to Mother. What should I destroy? Tractors? Ordinary
cars? Repeat, I do not see any tanks. Request additional instructions."
AWACS: "Mother to Charlie Bravo. This is a military target, a completely
legitimate military target. Destroy the target. Repeat, destroy the target."
Pilot: "Charlie Bravo to Mother. OK, copy. Launching."

April 11-17, 1999 in Kosovo. (The New Rome & the New Religious Wars, by
