Even from 19,000 feet up, the synthetic aperture radar on the .defensenews.com/ UAV can detect tire tracks, footprints, even a quarter-inch-wide cut someone made trying to slice through the tall steel wall that separates the U.S. from Mexico along parts of the Southwest border.

racer42 - Good for you, the backseat rides are something I wanted for as many of my NCOs and airmen as could be worked into the schedule (sometimes had to fudge a bit to squeeze in extra rides for the troops). Quite a ride isn't it? Did you go to the range at all for bombing runs?

the pilot was just getting his flight time up for the month. He knew I was pursuing my commercial license out at Tucson Int so, as soon as we got up to altitude, he let me take it. We went up to the Grand Canyon and almost all the way back when he took over again. Dove at a fairly steep angle and leveled off what seemed to be 50 feet off the desert. Must have been higher than that but I swore I could reach out and grab some cactus as we went by. Had my hands on the eject handle the whole time. He asked me if I saw any coyotes (the 4 legged kind) and I told him we'd just flown under one. The 4g pitchout on landing was a real treat since I didn't have a g suite on. Just about the most fun anyone could have with their clothes on.

racer42 - Sounds like you are a natural "Stick" if you flew UNDER a four legged coyote!! Did you get your commercial license?
