the emotions are controlled but elevated and then you hear the “fights on, tapes on” and you know it’s time to get er’ done …
not often used, but very very effective, is the term “GATE” and that means FULL THROTTLE and MAX OUT on the direction of the threat to ENGAGE and KILL
“Cobra’s GATE Barber 180/15/35K/track 360/FAST
COBRA: that’s your call sign for the mission
GATE: full throttle get max knots!
Barber: that is a “code name” for the reference point
180/15/35k/track 360 FAST
a predetermined geographic point positions the threat 15 miles south at 35K flying north at 1.5 IMN ….
heads up, some body is ready to pick a fight ….
you are pushed back into your seat as the full thrust and energy propels your fighter and you feel the THRUST kick in and, guess what, you have 4 really really hungry fighters looking for a fight ….
unless you have been there, well, you just can’t imagine the POWER and ADRENALINE rush … it’s pretty amazing.
here’s the rub …
the more you do it, the more you realize how much you have to CONTROL the initial euphoria, intensity, aggressiveness and REMOVE emotion from the 4 fighters that are, literally, streaking thru the sky at 1.5 IMN to KILL.…
after many many hours of the above I am more concerned w/ watching the formation, the gas, the weapons, the weather, the threat and CONTINUOUSLY evaluate if you are winning or losing.
Fast forward to the YEN vs the DOLLAR ….
IF this analysis is correct THEN look at this BUY PATTERN for the $$$ vs the YEN…
“Cobra 11, GATE, BUY DOLLAR vs the JPY and ABORT if it gets below 96.80 and ride it ….”
PS — the pilot of that plane is the Godfather of my 3rd daughter …… get er’ done
