Doug Masters: Dad, four more MiGs jumping us!

Col. Ted Masters: Pull up hard!

Maj. Dwight Smiley: This is Blue Leader, do you read?

Doug Masters: They’re ours dad, they’re American! Roger Blue Leader, I’ve got two bandits on my ass, can you assist?

Maj. Dwight Smiley: We were about to contact the aggressor and verify his intentions. Attention unidentified aircraft, this is Major Dwight Smiley of the United States Air Force, you are following one of our F-16s in international airspace, do you wish to engage?

Maj. Dwight Smiley: I didn’t think so.
