A Fighter Pilot on the Flight Line - Transcript

Maj. Windy Hendrick: On the flight line right now, we're on the flight line, and it is just after 7:00 in the morning, which is our normal starting time here at Tucson. The guys are getting geared up. We fly about 34 sorties, 34 sorties every day here at Tucson. We are the largest Air Guard wing in the country, and we have an incredible amount of student training that we do. Then we also have instructor pilot continuation training, to bring them up to speed on what's going on. What you're hearing in the background right now is probably the first 15 jets or so getting ready to launch out for the first wave in the morning go.
