Polish Air Force Pilot Talks F-16s

In a video released by NATO, Polish Air Force pilot Lt. Col. Paul talks about his experiences flying F-16s. The video was shot during Exercise Brilliant Arrow 13 at Oerland Main Air Station Norway from Aug. 25 to Sept. 5. The exercise included more than 800 personnel and 50 aircraft from NATO members Norway, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Aircraft participating included F-16s, Mirage 2000s, Tornado GR4s, E-3 Sentries, Dassault Falcon 20s, C-160s, C-130s, KC-10 Extenders, and Bell 412 utility helicopters. Some of the experiences Lt. Col. Paul shares are universal to fighter pilots. Others, like his transition from MiG-21s to F-16s, are unique to the Polish Air Force.
