Tonight, DethJeff and I spent 45 minutes up in the air in our two Hogs and finally landed, after a tiring but exhilirating mission. The strange thing was, not only did we not fire a single round for the entire mission: we didn't even bring any ammo with us!
I've been on a formation flying bend the past month or so, and DethJeff helped me out by alternating as my lead and wingman while I practiced a key formation flying skill: station keeping. We took turns flying each other's wing in straight and level flight and basic turns and then descended to Kobuleti for a section landing - not bad considering we were both noobs at it.

Mission over, we hop out of the jets and over to the O-club for some margaritas
