Taal; Greetings Russ, greetings
Johnny. How are you both functioning?
Russ; Iím functioning quite well.
Johnny; Yes, me too.
Taal; Good. Now, technical report on missing
aircraft. First of all there is no such thing as
bad pilot. Bad pilots do not live long.
J; So youíre eliminating pilot error, is that what
Taal; correct. We are trained very well. Battle
report from surviving aircraft. Appeared out of
6th dimension, started patrol parameters. Patrol
area from North California to Utah, down to
Arizona. Jumped over South Utah, approximately 15
unidentified objects attacked. One aircraft down.
Attack occur on aircraft being shadow. From the
ground came the bulk of the force from the
mountains. Unable to track at such low level due
to the fact that magnetic field from planet and
from mountains, trees and bodies of water. Pilots
not follow normal procedure of one high, two low.
They fly in group. Inexperienced. Inexperience in
this case proved deadly. Pilots also very lax in
following procedure. Fortunately patrol ending
itís patrol was able to arrive on the scene.
Unfortunately too late. One aircraft down, pilot
terminated, all material beyond recovery or
R; Did we get any of theirs?
Taal; No, they ran when we arrived. And when I say
we, I mean we.
J; So they were waiting for them?
Taal; Yes, ambush.
R; Did he leave any loved ones behind?
Taal; Yes, his sons and daughter are fine, his
wife or bondmate is sad but understands that it
happens. Procedure is trained to save lives. If
not, this is what happens.
R; With the one high two low scenario, how could
this of been avoided?
Taal; Because being high, you can see movement
easier. The two low act as necessary backup or
R; But even against those odds?
Taal; He wouldíve been able to warn them, they
couldíve retreated or been prepared for the
R; Now do you run simulator scenarios where youíre
up against 5 to 1 odds like that?
Taal; We run even higher.
R; Oh really?
Taal; weíve been known to run 12 or 20 to 1. Then
it becomes a fight for survival. Survival is the
key. If necessary eject , eject, eject, Iím out of
R & J; (laughter)
J; So taking the same scenario this pilot lost his
life in. A more experienced pilot in the correct
formation would have gotten his way out of it?
R; Iím sorry this had to happen.
Taal; Thank you, I will pass on your message. I
R; Farewell Taal.
