MiGMan's Combat Diary
Aircraft: F-8J recommended, take the F-4J Phantom II
Mission Map: Change the flight plan as shown.
Although the briefed takeoff was 0900, it's actually about 0500 (dawn).
Ingress at high altitude and max speed to avoid MiGs. Also watch out for MiGs on egress....you should probably avoid them due to the low fuel state of your flight at this point in the mission.
