How are they gonna shoot you, with their Ak's!??? Just aim those guns into the sky or what from miles away? You will be picking them up from Camp Bastion and what have you, not exactly dropping into danger zones. Seriously - surface to air missles!! HAHA who do you think you are fighting man JESUS! THEY DONT HAVE SURFACE TO AIR MISSILES MAN. And the chances of "falling into the ocean," well you're the bloody pilot! I don't think about that when i go on holiday...perhaps i should!
They actually do have access to SAMS and no im not a pilot. but im in a flight squadron and we will not always be landing in the safety of an AFB in Afghanistan or Iraq. Thats what I have been told because they want us to understand its not always lolipops and gumdrops. We needed to know what possibilities are before taking the job. And planes do have failures and have to make emergency landings or sometimes do crash. Just because people getting killed over there isn't in the news everyday.. it doesnt mean it isnt happening.
And for those people saying they have no resources.. they had enough to come to america, learn to fly, obtain weapons, hijack planes, and destroy multiple buildings and thousands of lives
