What do you think the guys were doing during the 46 Class "A" misses, between 2000 and 2012?
Not looking out of the window hard enough or well enough. Them's the breaks.

Yet another thread devoted to making an aircraft "safe" without thinking about the combat implications of such action. The aircrew's role is to find and destroy another aircraft (or to prevent them doing the same to you), ideally BVR, if necessary eyeball to eyeball; if they can't do that in peacetime, when will they be able to do that?
