|The airport facilities and the lighting looks like as in one of those early flights I have to take in my day job. If I could only fly a Viper to this business trips! :p|
During my ongoing campaign, I have been conducting OCA strikes. One after another. I switched from Blu-107 Durandals to GBU 24s and this has worked very well for hitting and disabling runways.

|Getting closer to the target area. Note the targeting pod (right multi-function display).|
|That was a nice hit. Return to base.|
|Landing the Viper at our home plate.|
|Debrief and mission events.|
Then I realized that after continuous pounding from the air, most of the airbases in west North Korea were gone.
Time to hit other type of targets: wild weasel!
|So I went back for re-training. The whole HARM missiles routine I have not used it in a very long while. It is fascinating how BMS has updated it.|
|Magnum! Note the smoke plume down there. That's an SA-3 site I just took out.|
|And this is from an SA-2 site that forced me into some violent maneuvering and eventually down to a very low altitude.|
And that's how I take it with Falcon 4 BMS. I fly the campaign, then I go back to the training missions. I get the feeling that finishing Falcon is like finishing the internet.
