Axel, In a previous life I was a US Marine Corps officer. I've got a soft spot for men and machines of war.
One fond memory I have from the first Gulf War was British and Saudi Tornados flying about 50 feet above my position at the Kuwaiti border on their way to bomb targets . Nearly gave me a heart attack every time they suddenly flashed by, so fast and low.
Unfortunately they took unacceptable casualties down low and had to revert to medium altitude bombing after a couple weeks. But God they were glorious down there, blowing through like some hell sent demons, leaving shattered eardrums and a trail of dust. Incredible.
