Dan Hampton is back to discuss a wide range of issues. Last time we talked, our conversation ranged from women in the cockpit to employing his beloved F-16 to kill the enemy. This time around we cover everything from the USAF's plan to keep a portion of its F-16s flying until 2048, to the service's pilot retention woes, to America's strategy in Iraq. As usual, "Two Dogs" has strong views, and is unafraid to share them.

Thanks for sharing this one. Very interesting!


I'm curious to know, does the color of the sky matter to you?

Good to hear from Dan Hampton again. Viper Pilot is one of my all time favorite books!
