  1. Hi David, have you seen the recent Chinese movie called Sky Fighters (歼十出击)? It is like a Chinese Top Gun with rival J-10 and Su-27 squadrons. Crude but interesting aerial special effects, but it looks like real airplanes used in ground shots.

    Here’s the trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dg4h0A1oS1g.

    (I have the whole thing on video with English subtitles.)

    I enjoy your great blog.

  2. I was a F-4E driver in 496TFS at Hahn AB Germany in early 70’s… 4 Italian F-104s (acro team?) departed Bitburg AB and crashed in close formation a short time after takeoff… never heard why except possible lead error in low level barrel roll or loop… any memories of this event?

    • Hi,
      it’s a quite famous incident. The four F-104s did not belong to any team, they were fighter bombers of the 6° Stormo (Wing) based at Ghedi. They were returning to their homebase after a Sqn Exchange or exercise (can’t remember it for sure). Lead plane’s pilot suffered spatial disorientation shortly after take off and crashed into a nearby mountain.
