If it makes us feel any better, he also targeted troops with credit issues.It almost worked well enough to get CAPT Dorsey promoted to Flag.
When Lt. j.g. Timothy W. Dorsey intentionally fired his fighter jet’s missile at an Air Force reconnaissance plane, nearly killing its two aviators and destroying the aircraft during a training exercise, it was hard to imagine then how his Navy career would wind up 25 years later.www.washingtontimes.com
Hint: U.S. Navy pilots aren't supposed to do this to U.S. Air Force pilots. (Photo: Public Domain)There are a couple things that everyone going into a military exercise absolutely has to get right. First, get good training and look for ways to improve both personal and unit performance...www.wearethemighty.com
For those unfamiliar with this, truly an embarrassment. The RF-4 pilot went through T-38 PIT when I was an IP at Randlolph AFB in the mid-90s, and one afternoon he played Dorsey's gun camera video for us, and narrated the experience. Just unbelievable. I hear that he is really having some significant medical issues now that he is older as a result of the injuries he sustained.
When any of the Services make these kind of errors... whether the general public knows or cares about it... it points to shit that needs to be fixed. By "leadership". The status quo doesn't cut it.
